Being a vocal concerned parent about the professional conduct of teachers:
Being vocal is the key to showing our kids what we expect from them.
1) Being concerned about our children is a normal everyday practice of parents.
2) The easiest way to teach kids is by being the example you want them to follow.
3) When it comes to crime : #1 we never want our kids to be victims #2 We never want our kids to be perpetrators.
4) Our physical home is the easiest place to control the environment so that good examples of behavior can be taught.
5) Outside the home: It is the classrooms, in our schools, where environments of learning good behavior can also be learned and practiced.
6) Our After School Activities and Church Activities Also provide structural opportunities to instill good, lawful, conduct and practices.
Today, I am reminded that having trust of the academic professionals who associate with our children in any given moment (inside or outside of the school) is really important to foster ! I am a teacher loving parent! I love most of the teachers my kids have ever had and strongly liked the rest - all of my feelings are based in respect . Their profession is a difficult one and I have always felt that my job as a parent was to make sure my kids followed every expectation that was given to them to follow. I have also been a parent who has had to stand up for my kids and for myself with teachers and principals who at rare times have not lived up to my expectations. There is a LINE
Again: There is a LINE that must be drawn between adults and kids ! And I am seeing this line being casually crossed too many times! Many instances are harmless, but can grow to something as extreme as this. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/10/02/us-usa-louisiana-sexcrimes-idUSKCN0HR23420141002 It is good that that this activity with these individuals at this school was stopped - Let's really fight this behavior all the time ! https://www.facebook.com/susanrayshea/posts/10203633887742742 Please report all crimes http://www.crimestoppersbr.com/school.aspx
