Overview

A+ Teachers empowers parents with the knowledge needed to ensure their kids get the best education they can right now. The book walks through the basic teaching skills every teacher must master to be successful and then gives parents the tools needed to analyze how their kids' teachers measure up. This groundbreaking book then provides the steps for working with teachers, the school administration, and the PTA to ensure that all teachers in their local schools acquire these critical skills if they don't possess them already.

Parents will learn how to assess and encourage improved performance in their children's classrooms by uncovering: what's really involved in effective teaching; how to better support their kids' teachers; strategies for raising the level of instruction for all kids; how to be more education-committed parents; how to inspire their children to fulfill their academic potential.

There is not another book available that emboldens, empowers, and enlightens parents about what really goes on in today's classrooms. With A+ Teachers as their guide, parents will be armed with the ability to quickly evaluate their children's teachers-and then foster high standards within their schools.

As a parent and also an elementary and middle school educator, a friend (college professor) recommended this book to me -- and it is wonderful!! I just recently finished reading it and felt inclined to jot down some notes and useful tips along the way...and then starting applying some of the ideas while talking to teacher and parent friends...and all our children...about some new and better ways we can all approach the upcoming school year. We all feel more 'empowered' -- as Ms. Karres, the author, gives incredible insights and explanations as to what really happens in the communications processes at school -- and how both students, parents, and teachers can work --even in the smallest ways -- to really make our relationships more successful...and students feel better about themselves and their role in the whole picture. Ms. Karres gives clear sensible tips and guidelines so you don't feel like you're left hanging...this is a book I will keep close at hand and freely recommend. Pick up a copy...you won't be sorry!
