We are continuing our Beginning Teacher Training Series of the Year where each week, I am sharing fresh, new content for you to guide and support you as you prepare for your first (or second, or third) year of teaching so you can feel fully prepared on that first morning and during that first week of school.

So this week, I'll share what you can do to set yourself up for success when it comes to getting parents on your side from the beginning of the school year.

I know it can be a challenge to develop positive parent relationships when you're a new teacher, and I really wish someone had shared with me what you're going to learn today - so don't miss out on this special training, available only for a limited time.
