Even though my daughter is too young for school, I have lot of experience in the classroom – as a student and a teacher. 

Parents play a huge role in their children’s education. I believe, that parents should be involved in their children’s education and be their child’s advocate, especially when the children are young. 

I also think that parents need to support teachers. Parents and teachers working as team is the best scenario for the children, who are the most important part of the equation. 

Michelle, who writes “Scribbit: Motherhood in Alaska,” wrote an excellent post about the role of parents in the classroom. Read it here.

I agree with Michelle that teachers deserve the respect of students and parents. Yes, of course there are bad teachers, and every student will have a bad experience with a teacher. I did, and I know my daughter will. But, I also had excellent teachers, and I hope my daughter will too.
