After watching and helping 3 kids go through school, I have learned a lot about education. We all know just how important a great education is to succeeding in life, so I decided to create a blog to help students and parents learn from my experiences. I first want to talk about how important it is for a parent to take an active role in their child's education. I met many parents through my time working with teachers and helping out in classrooms, and I noticed that the parents of children excelling in class always found the time to attend things like parent-teacher conferences and children who were not thriving in class often had parents who didn't show up. While this is only one factor, I plan to post tips about many other educational topics.
