Veteran Teacher Shares Her Secrets with Others in her book. Quick and Easy Ways to Connect with Students and Their Parents: Improving Student Achievement through Parental Involvement.
Diane Mierzwik, English teacher at Park View Middle School in Yucaipa, California, is promoting her book, Quick and Easy Ways to Connect with Students and Their Parents: Improving Student Achievement through Parental Involvement by offering a bonus package which includes gifts from education expert Dr. Ruby K. Payne, author of A Framework for Understanding Poverty, motivational speaker, Jack Canfield, co-author of best selling Chicken Soup for the Soul Series and educational leaders and authors such as Karen Poppen.
Having taught at all levels of the school system for over eighteen years, Diane is excited to be able to share with others her successful techniques, “I have spent the last eighteen years working at getting the highest levels of achievement out of my students through building relationships with them and their parents.”
As a parent herself, Diane understands how important it is for teachers to involve parents in their children’s education. “If I trust and believe in what a teacher is doing for my child, then I’m on board and my child reaps the benefits of having both adults helping him reach a common goal. Of course, this experience has translated into my reaching out to my students’ parents to involve them. I want parents to know that we are working together toward their children’s success.”
Her book provides techniques which create exponential growth in student achievement through positive interactions and reinforcements, without extending a teacher’s day. “Quick and easy is the only way anyone can add one more thing to the already too long list of important things teachers do.”
The gifts from her supporters make the promotion an exceptional value.
