Kids:
If I study I can live my dream
It's hard alone. What I need's a team
Teachers at school help me learn a lot
Cause good grades mean a job that's hot
A family to stand by and say
When it’s time to study, when it’s time to play
To help me learn when I'm at home
With a quiet space to get me in the zone
No TV or games in sight
So I can try with all my might
I believe we can be a team
With help at home, I can live my dream

David:  I'm David Sanchez, a classroom teacher and president of the California Teachers Association. Students of all ages and grade levels do better when families are involved in their education. So as this school year begins, it's good to remember that when families, teachers, and students work together as a team, everyone wins.

Kids: This message was brought to you by the California Teachers Association. Because every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
