A passionate educator, lover of little people, their educators, and caregivers. I struggled through my early educational journey & through understanding my learning differences along with the trials I & my family faced, I know my life's purpose is to create opportunities for parents & educators to learn what it means to collaborate for the sake of their child's success. I believe this process should begin from infancy. I have a BS in Early Childhood & Elementary Education. An MA in Youth & Family ministry & am beginning my Doctoral journey in Educational Leadership & Organizational Change.
Hi Cooper, My name is Nicole I am one of the Teachers Guild Ambassadors. Thank you so much for sharing this idea. I mean when you have to make up a class in college you more than not have access to materials missed so when not at the high school and middle school level. Sounds like a great opportunity to also just have for parents to see what's happening inside of their child's classroom as well. Have you tried piloting something like this via google classroom.? Accounts are free for both teachers and students and might be a starting place. Thanks again. Twitter Handle @ENicoleCumm
Hi Caroline, My Name is Nicole and I am one of the Teachers Guild Ambassadors. Thank you so much for sharing insight and perspective on supporting parents with vital information about their child's journey. You are right this is key. As you are thinking about the ways that this can take place either within your classroom, school or as a parent, have you identified a few practices that might help bring this vision to life. Let me know if you have any questions. You can find me here, or my twitter handle is @ENicoleCumm
Wyatt Spruell My name is Nicole Cummings and I am one of the Teachers Guild Ambassadors. Thank you so much for contributing to the conversation. This is an awesome idea, are you thinking about developing your own, are there apps that you have used with your families that are similar? One that comes to mind is a class dojo. Let me know what you find I am intrigued and would love to learn more. Keep me posted. You can also find me on Twitter @ENicoleCumm.
