It’s a new school year, and with this fresh start comes opportunities to try new things.
I challenge students to make a strong, positive first impression with their new teachers!
Calling all procrastinators!
Here is the best tool to get you on track: the DAILY TO DO LIST.
Set up a daily time management ritual, and stick to it, and you will improve your success in school and life.
I’m going to bet you’ll see better marks, among various improvements, immediately!
Preparation is key to effective learning skills, and when you prepare well for anything in your life, you will accomplish more.
If you have a teenager in grades nine or ten, it’s time to get thinking about her career interests and goals.
Make a plan.
Think about finances.
Make sure that your teenager accomplishes key goals before the busy grade twelve year of graduation and applications.
With Parent-Teacher interviews approaching, are you filled with anxiety and nerves? Does sitting in that small kindergarten chair, across from your child’s teacher, take you back to the days when you got in trouble at school?
Whatever your feelings or childhood experiences, you must maximize the fraction of time you’ll get to chat about your child’s progress at school.
Remember: a strong, communicative, and positive teacher-parent-student relationship is essential for student success. As the parent, you can make a huge difference in your child’s success, by doing your part in this three-way relationship. Build a respectful and ongoing rapport, become an ally with the teacher, and you will show your child you’re on board, and engaged, with all academic strategies, expectations, and activities.
