This book will help parents appreciate the challenging job teachers and administrators do each day to help your children. We will examine together those things that enter into a satisfying and learning experience: the physical plant, a safe and clean environment a learning atmosphere, a look at a classroom, etc. I even have a Chapter that will show you how to help your children improve in reading. Does this sound almost impossible? Relax! Forty years’ experience as a teacher and principal and working with parent groups has taught me that nothing is impossible. Do You Know Your Child? Doesn’t that sound somewhat silly? Of course, you know him. He has lived with you. You have watched him grow. You see his good points and bad. So what is there to know? Hang on. I am really talking about your child’s potential in school. In addition, there is plenty of information in your in the home. I will take you through some ideas that will help you assess your child’s potential for learning. I want to emphasize that the knowledge you will gain and the class teacher’s input will let you know if your child is an average learner, superior learner or a slow learner. This will give you ammunition if you have to consider placing your child in another class or school environment. All author royalties are being donated to the Bone Marrow foundation.
