I’ve written before about what kind of school parent I am, and in an episode of Mama Said, Sarah and I discussed my ambivalence about volunteering in their classrooms. Short story, I think a lot about what my kids’ teachers think of me. When I discuss my own parenting style with them—including teachers in my social circles—I keep hearing a lot of similar things: That it’s a collaboration. Parents and teachers have to work together as a team to help our kids reach their potential. So I’ve been asking them questions: What do teachers want us to be? What kind of parents do teachers love? I’ve rounded up my leanings on my Babble blog.
