School Smart: Its More Than Just Reading & Writing

By Shauna F. King

From homework, to report cards, to spring fever, school can be tough, and not just for children. School Smart is an easy to read guidebook that steers parents and educators through a school year, touching on the significant milestones encountered and explaining how best to help children navigate those experiences. Each school year is a journey through which we have the privilege of coaching our children to make smart choices. Teachers and parents have different roles, yet both are steering toward the same destination. If we think of school as a sports game, then the child is the star player and we are the coaches on the sidelines, guiding and cheering them as they fumble, score, and pass. The author, Shauna F. King, provides valuable suggestions and tools for success while also acknowledging pitfalls every teacher, parent, and student faces. Full of practical and insightful content, School Smart provides parents and teachers with insight that aids in arming and empowering youth to excel and succeed.

Reset the Hearts and minds of educators and parents

In just a few short but indepth chapter's, Shauna King has been able to reset the hearts and minds of educators and parents. Her thoughts challenge readers to remember to approach each school day with confidence and optimism. I would say those are two of the key ingredients necessary to guide our children/students on a successful educational journey. She reminds us to take this one day, one week, one lesson at a time.

School Smart is a ‘hug’ with words

As a parent and educator I felt School Smart captured my attention from the beginning in its depiction of the exuberance and nervous energy associated with the beginning of the school year for the child, parent, and educator. School Smart provides practical, insightful content and remedies of important considerations for students and children parents and teachers can apply that aid in arming and empowering youth to excel and succeed. Shauna King's down to earth humor, compassion, expertise as an educator and experience as a parent presents the content of School Smart as a helping hand for parents and educators who could benefit from a timely word of encouragement. School Smart is a 'hug' with words. Though the content is aimed at helping children, I felt validated as an educator and understood as a parent reading School Smart.
