Inspiration for Parents & Educators

An Introduction

on February 26, 2013

What an amazing journey my career in education continues to be! I am so very fortunate doing something that I love, something that really challenges me, and something that keeps me sharp and current in today’s fast paced world. I treasure connecting with passionate, dedicated parents and educators, on a regular basis in either a school environment, through my education consulting, and by way of my books.

I’ve been thinking for quite a while, now that I’m away from my 8 to 4 classroom position that I need to change things up a bit in my approach to sharing my education and colorful career experience with you. My blog will be a great way to link with many busy, over worked parents and teachers, in need of a fresh idea, a tried and true tip, or strategy, or just to help lighten the day when it is needed.

My goal is to help you, whether you are an over worked father putting in 60 hours a week, a stressed out single mom, or a parent or educator who is just plain tired of doing things that are not working with kids. My hope is to offer some fresh alternatives to help you translate your good intentions into proven skills, ones that ensure your children’s successful transitions both at home and school. Throughout this process, together we will develop options that will guide your precious ones to achieve positive results, and better relationships at home, in the classroom, and on the playground.

My wish is to discuss what’s important to you, what is useful, and above all what is practical and workable in your particular situation. As we begin our journey together, and lay the foundation for your children’s school success never underestimate the importance of a strong, positive, genuine home-school connection. When all is said and done at the end of the day:

School is a Team Effort:
The teacher’s job is to teach
The child’s job is to learn
The parent’s job is to help the child be ready and able to learn

I’m looking forward to our exchanges centering around establishing smooth travel plans for your children’s first day of pre-school, and throughout the elementary, and middle school years. My intent is to provide you with a thoughtful and supportive approach, and offer practical, direct, and clear action plans for both your satisfaction and accomplishment. I promise you that your life and your kids’ lives will change dramatically. You can make the shift; put yourself in the driver’s seat, and take charge of how you steer your children to a more calm, happy, and peaceful life at home and at school.

With a positive intention, new knowledge, and useful tools for learning, you can make even the most challenging situations work for you and your kids. If you are serious about improving the quality of your relationships with your children, blog will provide an important element, a valuable road map for your successful journey: the guiding hand of a seasoned teacher who has helped other parents and educators on their own personal journeys to a more confident and relaxed home life and noted achievement in school.

Hope you’ll join in the travel plans for a smooth trip ahead. Don’t Miss the Bus!! Fasten your seatbelt! Enjoy the ride!
