Join Katie Novak for a discussion of her latest book, Let Them Thrive. The goal of this workshop is to talk about the not-always-recognized or talked about barriers that get in the way when parents and teachers work together. Those barriers can make it hard for each “side” to realize what's in the way for a teacher or a parent and why it can make us feel like we're not all trying to help the student. In discussing those barriers, looking at them from the other perspective and brainstorming ways to move forward to remove or mitigate for them, we’re giving people the opportunity to effect change.
