A teacher in my kids’ school spoke out, recently, about the relationship between teachers and parents. He phrased it so beautifully that I asked if I could share it with all of you.
Thanks to the incomparable Greg Changnon for his words of wisdom:
The relationship between parent and teacher can be a difficult one. Both are members of a team that is guiding the student through the education experience. And sometimes, of course, teammates can squabble, disagreeing over the right play or the most effective strategy. The best sort of teammate is the one who trusts the other completely, who remains grateful for the other’s participation and influence.
