Back to School: Engaging Parents

A few weeks ago, I was faculty at the CUE Rockstar event in Crescent City. Last week, I attended the #edcamp here in Portland, #edcampPDX. At both places, I talked with teachers about better ways to engage parents, based on the techniques we use in the Army, but I also talked about tools teachers can use in better engaging parents. And since school has actually started in many places, to include our own school district, I should probably share some of those ideas here as well.

I wasn’t selected to present at #CUERockStar
