Do you ever wonder what your kids’ teachers really wish you knew?
This time of year, it can be easy to start feeling like a slacker in the “school mom” department. Re-entry after winter break is difficult, and sometimes things like reading logs and nutritious lunches start to slip for the best of us. (Note: I am not counting myself among the best of us.)
If you can relate, you’re going to love my discussion with Erica Ladd, creator of The Candid Teacher blog, author of Candid Classroom: What Parents Want To Know And Teachers Want To Tell Them*, and co-host of The Girl Next Door podcast. Erica’s point of view about what REALLY helps kids do their best in school is refreshingly reassuring and so, so simple.
We also talk about Erica’s ongoing journey in the foster-to-adopt system, how to look past test scores and other numbers when assessing how good a school is, and more!
