Boy:
Then you put it in the pot…

David Sanchez:
I’m David Sanchez, president of the California Teachers Association and a classroom teacher. Families and teachers working together give kids their best chance to succeed. There are many ways you can help at home: teaching simple math while sharing household chores; reading together; scheduling a regular time for homework; and creating a quiet place to study. Showing that you care how well your children do in school helps put them on the road to success. Learning that begins at home can last a lifetime. For tips on how you can help your child in school, visit us at cta.org…or ask a teacher.
