Help the Parent, help the child!

As we know most of our student’s parents have full-time jobs and go above and beyond to make sure their child or children have a place to call home and other necessities. Parents usually look for the teachers to make sure that their child has all the academic tools needed to succeed.

As educators, we know that both the parents and teachers together can play a more impactful role. Instead of complaining about what is not happening outside of the classroom, we should consider ways to educate their parents on what they can do and how. Simplifying ways that parents can help maximize the potential and mindset of our students are a starting point.

In one of my courses, we were challenged to create a weekly newsletter to share with parents. The newsletter is about what their children were doing and how they can help do more at home. Here is what I created Parent Engagement Newsletter, feel free to download the PDF and adjust as you desire.

Yours in Empowerment,

Greetings: My name is Andrea S. Pickens; I have several years of experience in education and youth development all of which include teaching and leading youth in under-resourced and economically disadvantaged communities. I believe that it is critical to the academic and over success of our youth to have proper academic and social-emotional support. This support is often found in schools and after-school programs that intervene by providing tutoring/enrichment services and are equipped with effective teachers and leaders. My belief is that each child can learn, but not all children learn the same; diversity and equity is crucial to youth development. It is my mission as an educator, entrepreneur, and servant-leader to equip and empower others in youth development and education to reach our youth beyond the secondary classroom. Yours in Education, Andrea S. Pickens, M.Ed
