Parent Engagement Article

Research shows that children are more likely to succeed academically and are less likely to engage in violent behavior if their families are involved in their education. Many parents say, however, that they feel unwelcome or uncomfortable in their children's schools. Teachers often feel under attack by parents who are highly involved. Learn how to bridge the gap. Included: A dozen activities to promote parental involvement and ten tips for involved parents.

The Why's

Debe Roger's Why:

I have always been a "school girl," loved everything about going to school my whole life. They say "those who can, do/ those who can't, teach." It is a terrible saying except when I stretch it to say that since I can't be a student forever, I can surround myself with students and teachers and can learn as much from them as I teach. I want to be a lifelong learner, so maybe my reasons are a bit more selfish. But if I can inspire students to be lifelong learners, too, then I have made a difference.

Emily Pryor's Why:

To make a positive difference in the lives of the children that I serve as well as the teachers, staff, and community that surround our school.

Mrs. Moore's WHY:

To make my room the "safe" place for kids to learn and grow. I always wanted to be two things growing up...a mom and a teacher. I have been blessed to be able to do both - and my goal in my teaching has always been to be my students "home away from home" - a place where they are encouraged, nurtured, and grown into the young men and women I know they can be.

Coach Stacy's Why:

To be the "constant" in each students life. To be the one they want to share with and trust . They know they can Count on me!

Amanda Maclaurin's WHY:

To make a positive difference in children’s lives. ❤️

Sonya Moreno's WHY:

To encourage all students & celebrate every success/improvement, no matter the size!

I would love for you to share your WHY so that we can highlight them throughout the year!

Unpacking the TEK

Remember to pull the language out of the SE. Decide what the important nouns and verbs are and then how you will chunk them for your students.

The most important part of the process is to SHARE exactly what students need to master with the students!
