Educational Resources for Foster Parents

Practical advice for supporting your kids academically.

As an educator and a former foster parent (we adopted our girls last year), I wanted to create educational resources for foster and adoptive parents attempting to support their children academically. The closing of schools in our region for the next six weeks (or more), made me realize I needed to jump start this effort and start sharing resources on the internet – for parents like me that might be trying to figure out how to support their kids during this school-less time. I am creating a series of blog posts trying to provide the most essential information first. Ultimately, I’d like this to be a place that we can engage in some collaborative problem solving, where anyone can raise an educational issue and we can have a space to think together about how to solve it. I will try to create a few new posts a week as I too try to manage my full-time (newly virtual job) and my parenting responsibilities. Below are links to my blog posts thus far (newest at the bottom).
