Using this book, my desire is to help other schools achieve positive communication between parents and teachers using a very simple research based method that really works! Other how-to books provide advice, but this one shares the "way to go" along with authentic comments from the teachers themselves as to how much the process helped them throughout the rest of the year to continue great communication with their parents!
"Way to Go" provides the philsophy and educational research behind the strategy for the positive communication model, the necessay ingredients for the successful implementation of "Tell the Teacher More Day" as well as the follow through.
I live in Magnolia, Texas, with my husband, Dean. We have two married daughters and four grandchildren.
