A Letter To Parents Of Digital Age Children - 1 views

    "First, let me thank you for entrusting me with teaching your children, honoring the amazing individuals they are, and helping them discover the confident and empowered young people they can be. Providing a rich and engaging environment for your children to learn in is my utmost concern, but Iately I have had to acknowledge that the young people I see every day do much of the learning that is important to them when they leave the parking lot and head home from school. Thus, I am writing to solicit your help."

  • the strongest teachers are very good at gently, and sometimes not so gently, reminding parents that we’re all on the same side here
  • go to your school’s website and re-read the mission statement. If there are sections on values, and history, read those, too.
