Dear Parents and Guardians

A Teacher Vent Book for Teachers by a Teacher

ByLakiesha S. Cox

Not many people understand or know what challenges educators endure on a daily basis. Whether they are burning the midnight oil grading papers, spending their personal finances to purchase much-needed tools not supplied by the Ministry of Education, or pushing the toughest students to be their best selves, teachers continue to make endless sacrifices to ensure their students receive a quality education. Seasoned educator Lakiesha Cox shares the results of surveys and interviews with her colleagues that reveal a glimpse into the trials, tribulations, and confrontations teachers in The Bahamas must regularly attempt to overcome. Within real-life stories, teachers depict encounters with flippant parents and heartbreaking experiences with students enduring unfortunate circumstances at home while wearing a variety of hats at any time during the school day that include attorney, doctor, counselor, and many more. Throughout her presentation, Cox emphasizes that if parents, guardians, and educators pledge to work together for the betterment of children, they can ensure that each student has a positive experience every day they come to school. Dear Parents and Guardians shares real-life stories from educators to highlight the importance of parental involvement in a child’s education in The Bahamas.
