Strengthen the Link between Home and School
Currently, much is said and done about the positive effect of the school and home partnership. Parents and teachers are encouraged to communicate. Parents are urged to get involved in their child’s school in a variety of ways. Homework demonstrates to parents the material presented in class as well as their child’s abilities in various subjects.
It is an immitigable fact that children benefit from a harmonious and nurturing family life. Parents that set limits, encourage responsible behavior and use active listening skills raise children that are more likely to be motivated and confident in school and life.
Parents from middle to high socioeconomic groups are more likely to develop a parenting plan and seek out assistance from a variety of sources such as family counseling, books, videos, classes and special offerings from organizations in which they are members. Parents from low socioeconomic groups are less likely to seek assistance and more likely to tolerate unhealthy patterns.
Schools and families will benefit when parents elevate their parenting skills. Students and schools will see academic improvement when we focus on the needs of the family in the home. This has been ignored for too long and though it seems apparent, little has been done to address this issue.
Our organization will address the long ignored connection between healthy families and academic success by actively reaching out to groups who may or may not have access to parent education. We will not only seek out families in need, but offer flexible support to insure that families benefit in significant ways. Our organization will engage with families utilizing direct instruction strategies based on the needs of the participants, rather than a structured one size fits all curriculum, resulting in greater success for all participants. Parents, children and communities will appreciate the immediate and long lasting rewards from elevated parenting.

As a seasoned educator I am able to work with teachers and parents in the school and home setting to resolve academic and social issues. I provide individually designed workshops for parents and teachers.
