This summer, we're privileged to introduce a new series: Teacher Tuesdays, taking on Parent Engagement.
If you're reading VolunteerSpot's blog or using our online coordination tool, you likely already believe that parents being involved at school is a good (or even essential) thing. To enrich the conversation, we thought we'd approach parent engagement from a teacher's perspective and invited several leading teacher bloggers to share their viewpoints about parent involvement in education.
Whether you're a teacher or a parent, or just care about education, please drop by this summer to read what these wonderful teachers have to say.
Please Welcome our Guests:

Lisa Dabbs of Teaching with Soul writes about the importance of parent participation in education.
Pernille Ripp of Blogging through the Fourth Dimension writes an open letter to parents with the things a teacher wishes they could tell them but doesn't.
Suzy Brooks of Third Graders, Dreaming Big shares her belief that parents and educators are on the same team, and that the clearer they are both are able to see each child, the more they are able to help him or her as a learner.
