This Wednesday, May 9th at *8PM EST, #PTchat (Parent-Teacher Chat) will team up with #NTchat (New Teacher Chat) during the one hour online discussion on Twitter. Some of our parent participants have already submitted questions they'd like to pose to new and experienced teachers - some having to do with family engagement and some designed to share the perspective from home on what they look for in teachers for their children.
If you are a parent and are interested in submitting questions to be asked on the chat, please email Joe . If you are an educator, we invite you to take part in articulating your answers to these questions Wednesday night.
Parents and teachers -- Join us for this lively discussion!
**Special Time 8PM EST/5PM PST
