~ with Erin Sheldon, MEd.
Focusing on the role of “student” has allowed me to understand my daughter Maggie in my more complex ways. It has changed my priorities and made me a more effective advocate.
Understanding the role of student has meant that, as her mother, I can work with school teams and in our home to maximize Maggie being accepted for who she is as an individual and as a student. This created authentic opportunities for friendship and a more meaningful education. In this presentation, I will explain what and how I implemented role theory in supporting Maggie to be a successful student in her community school.
