Education is a powerful tool

I believe in the power of a quality education. I KNOW that it can change lives. I taught preschool for 14 years. My husband began his 17th year of teaching elementary school today.

As school starts for another year, let's pray for a good year. Let's pray for the children and their willingness to learn. Let's pray for the teachers to teach and make learning, fun, meaningful, and spark their pupils interests. Let's pray for the administration and that they will make decisions based on the best interests of the students and teachers.

When my youngest daughter started kindergarten, the teacher handed us a pie chart split into 3 equal parents. She said, "Your child's education is one part their responsibility, one part mine, one part the parents."

Parents NEED to be involved in their child's education, help with homework, read to your child, be present, and communicate with the teacher. Let's help these kiddos be successful. Let's raise them to be kind and giving not entitled and selfish.

New school year. New adventure. New beginnings.

Have a fun and playful day
