Next February, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary! Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.” Each week, I’ll be re-posting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years.

In 2009, I published my first book, Building Parent Engagement In Schools, co-authored by Lorie Hammond.  The book is best known for highlighting the differences between parent involvement and parent engagement.

At the time of the book’s release, I also began a blog called Engaging Parents In Schools. You can see about fifty “Best” lists related to parent engagement here.

About a year ago, life started getting too hectic for me to continue write posts over there. However, I continue to publish a weekly series of links to new resources about parent engagement.

I’ll be writing more about engaging parents in my upcoming book on English Language Learners, and a lot more in the fourth book in my student motivation series.
