Truth in education…..
If all parents would read this and actually follow through! As Gerry Brooks would say-"Parent. It's a verb!"
Stop making excuses for your kids. Stop blaming everyone else. Stop always taking their side. Please stop.
There’s a real problem going on and it’s getting out of control. I keep reading posts, messages and experiencing it myself.
If a teachers calls you about something, don’t immediately start blaming others and siding with your kid. Teachers have nothing anymore. Kids aren’t scared when their parents are called. They actually say “I don’t care, call them.”
Let me give you an example, if the teacher calls and says your child was on their cell phone all day...your first comment should not be “Well, did the other kids on their phones get in trouble?”
Your kids hear you. They see how you react. They know nothing is going to be done. That’s a problem.
When my kid’s teacher told me he was goofing off in class, my exact response was “Oh really..not a problem. I will take care of that tonight. And please update me daily so I can help nip this situation in the bud.” I’m on her side. My kid sees that. He knows that. That’s why we don’t have any problems anymore.
You’re creating entitled children. You’re teaching kids there are no consequences and they’re always right.
If your kid comes home and tells you something the teacher said (good or bad). Don’t immediately start talking against the teacher. Tell them you’ll find out more about the situation and do just that! Don’t jump to conclusions.
And oh my goodness.....please stop with the excuses. Seriously. Let’s use v**e pens as an example. Don’t tell me your kids doesn’t own a v**e pen. I don’t care if they own it or not. If it’s in their backpack...they’re guilty. End of story.
Teach your kids now. Stop waiting until they’re in middle or high school. Teach being guilty by association now. Scare them. Be a parent. Team up with teachers.
Go through their phone. If they’re not 18...it’s not THEIR phone. Take it. Snoop. Look through it. Take it away. You’re the freakin parent!
This is a scary world and you’re doing a disservice to your kids.

This webinar is designed to help stewards, grievance committee members, and leaders understand how the grievance process works and how to make it more effective.

This time around, Jerry's vid is no laughing matter!
This sums it all up so "clearly" . Round 2 of 'Choose your own (pandemic) adventure' coming up on January 3rd-or maybe not depending on the mandate of the week.
The importance of the joy you bring cannot be understated.
You’re the real MVPs.
There are probably many more things we wish administrators knew!
Because someone needs to say what teachers are thinking.
Dibels, STARR, CoGat, IOWA, MAP, Great Leaps, SAT, ACT, EOC, Unit, i-Ready, DRA, PASS….and the list goes on and on and on and on……
The head of the country's biggest teachers' union says educators are 'exhausted, stressed, and stretched so thin it feels like we'll crumble'
National Education Association President Rebecca Pringle told executives at Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok that teachers "feel like we'll crumble."
Teachers Are Not OK, Even Though We Need Them to Be
The pandemic has put teachers through the wringer. Administrators must think about staff well-being differently.

Progressive? It's certainly an idea worth looking at in our county; especially eliminating meetings where teachers are pulled from classrooms and subs are needed to fill in. (Subs? What subs?)
Teacher hours will remain the same. The board hopes this extra hour will help support burnt-out staff.
Superintendent of schools: “Who would want to be a teacher right now?”
This commentary was submitted by David Jeck, superintendent of the Fauquier County School Division.
We've all been there at least once! Not you? Don't worry. You'll experience these rites of passage soon enough. 😂
