The One About Fostering A Relationship With The School

Parental involvement in education is vital. Studies show that when parents are involved students have better grades, behavior, social skills, and attendance. Sometimes it can be difficult to navigate the school system and to know who to reach out to when a problem occurs. Fostering a relationship with your child's school from day one can make the difference between a good year and a great year.

In this episode we were joined by friend of the show, Andrea Fields. Andrea is a veteran educator and currently serves as assistant superintendent at Duncanville ISD near Dallas, TX.
