What Teachers Wish Parents Knew

Friday, Aug, 21 2015

Back to school is right around the corner, so what is the most effective way parents can help their children do their best in school?  Offer continual support and encouragement of leaning.  How can you do this?  Dr. Diane Sekeres, Assistant Professor of Education at The University of Alabama, offers the following:

1.  Pay attention every day to the information that comes home in your child's backpack. If anything needs to be returned or forms need to be completed, be sure to do that promptly.

2.  Check daily to make sure yiour child has completed the assignments.  Make sure homework and other assignments are in the backpack so they are handed in on time.

3.  Work with your child to plan ahead for projects so they can be done well without the stress of too-little time.  This will help your child lean to organize time and tasks.

4.  Offer occasional encouragement to your child's teacher, letting him or her know what you've noticed about your child's learning and growth. Do what you can to  help the lines of communication stay open between  you and the teacher.

5.  If your child tells  you something that happened in the classromm that concerns you, first check with the teacher for information before you register a complaint.

6.  Come visit the classroom.  Take a day when you can eat lunch with your child, volunteer to help out or teach the children about something  you know well.
