Our school is almost completely made up of split-grade classes this year, and parents are eagerly (?) anticipating the announcement of who their children's teachers will be.
I know there can be a lot of anxiety (and some misconceptions) about how class placements are decided, which is why I tackled this topic for my most recent CHEX Daily TV segment. I also discussed, with hosts Caley Bedore and Mike Judson, why it's important for parents to keep their teacher preferences to themselves. If you're positive about your child's teacher, class placement and school in general, your child will be too!
Thanks for your support, everyone!
