She's back! Dr. Michele Borba returns to #ptchat this Wednesday night at 9pm EDT/6PST to give advice on how parents can help kids get off to a great start this school year! Here's the link to last year's #ptchat conversation on what parents & teachers can do to put an end to bullying.
Dr. Borba (@micheleborba) is an internationally recognized author, speaker and educator on parenting, character education and bullying prevention. Her work aims to help strengthen children’s character and resilience, reduce peer cruelty and create compassionate, just learning cultures. Her website is a valuable resource for parents and teachers alike. For one hour on Wednesday night, we will be discussing everything parents can do to support students and teachers early and often this school year.
Join us and provide your best ideas and strategies as well as learn from fellow educators, parents and of course, Dr. Borba. If you have specific questions for Dr. Borba, please ahead of time and we will try to get as many in as possible during the chat. During the chat, we'll develop a collaborative Google Doc designed to include in September parent newsletters to share out learning. Please invite your school parents & colleagues to this conversation.
Proposed Questions for Dr. Borba:
