I have been debating introducing a new type of series for the blog called “Ask the Teacher Tuesday.” I’ve been hesitant, however, because I don’t want to come across as if “I know it all” and “this is how you do it” and “if you don’t do it this way, you are doing it wrong”, but I am a teacher by trade and finally decided that I could possibly help my readers out with information on how to help your children succeed in school. Of course, as in any profession, there will always be conflicting arguments on what is best for children and what the best methods are to use, and I respect those arguments as long as the well being of children is the primary goal. My goal is to help parents with questions that they may have but don’t know who to ask or where to find the information in books. I want to be as straight-forward and unbiased as possible, and avoid speaking “teacher-ease”. The subject of the questions could, for example, address study-skills, communication with teachers, communication with your child, or specific subject questions in math, science, etc.
I hope to begin getting questions, concerning education, from you, the readers, that I will be able to answer on Tuesdays. Depending on the amount of questions I get, I will choose 2 or 3 of the most relevant ones, to highlight each week. So get asking!
