Classrooms are changing and students are learning in new and different ways. As a parent, I am energized to hear about the great things happening in our schools. I’ve seen my daughter study for her AP World History exam with on-line quiz apps on her phone and my son make movies with an iPad as a way to learn new vocabulary words. Their teachers are creating new and innovative ways to teach the next generation of students. Every night, our dinner conversation is full with talk of the creative things that happened in school that day. It is my favorite time of the day, hearing my kids so pumped up about school and learning.
I try to bring this excitement with me to work at the Rodel Foundation of Delaware as we strive toward our mission to help Delaware build one of the finest systems of public education in the world. And it is this excitement that I look forward to seeing at the Eighth Annual Conference on Education, Moving Education in Delaware Forward, on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at the University of Delaware’s Clayton Hall. Teachers, administrators, community and business leaders and PARENTS are encourage to attend. As parents, this is a great chance for us to have our voices heard and to be a part of the conversation.
