Parents Appreciate Sensitive Teachers By Cynthia Bell Poet Staff Writer The majority of parents have moderate expectations of the teachers that teach their children. Discussions at PTA indicate that parents expect their children to be taught what they ought to know as opposed to the results of polls thaHndicate that parents are generally unsatisfied with their children’s education. In a recent survey of PTA presidents, findings were most parents want teachers to treat their children with re spect, enjoy working with chil dren, and understand that patience and understanding are needed in communicating with youngters. care whether a child learns, and take a genuine interest in the child's education making whatever £ effort necessary to enable the child to work at his or her speed. Parents also hope and expect that teachers will have the skill they need to present educational materials to their ■, „■ Sabrina' Davenport ...Wins singing part Davenport Wins Part In Opera ^ Production Eleven yeai^Ypld Sabrina Marie Davenport, a student at Steele Creek Elemehtary School, was a part of the cast in the Charlotte Opera Asso ciation’s production of “No ah’s Flood’’ held at the Cove nant Presbyterian Church last Saturday evening.

Ross Awarded ICS School Of Airline Travel Diploma Arthur Roes, Sr. of Amboy Court in Charlotte has been awarded a diploma from the ICS School of Airline-Travel, in Scranton, Pennsylvania for the successful completion of a career training program in the field. ICS is an international ca reer school with students and ^ graduates throughout the free ' ^ world. It has been a pioneer in the development of guided ■elf-improvement programs ■ ipce 1890. Parents appreciate teachers who are sensitive to the feel ings of each child, take into consideration that children have bad days too, and report problems in leamingor beha vior that are found in that child. Teachers expect parents to prepare their children to par ticipate in their own education so that teachers will be able to satisfy their needs more effi ciently. Parents are also expected by teachers to pre pare children emotionally, mentally, socially, and physi cally to attend school. Tea chers believe that the quality of the training a child receives at home has marked influence on his or her respect for school rules, his behavior patterns, his ability to think, his respect for property, his respect for elderly people, his ability to get along with others, his manners, and his moral stan dards. Children will often try har der if parents express that they are interested in what is happening as far as school work is concerned or even express an interest in the events that happen during the day. The importance of school will be eminent in the minds of the children. If a parent ex pects his child to be successful he should let him know that he has confidence in him. Confi dence is an incentive for a child to work harder in school. Parents must be willing to enter a partnership with the teacher where they can be called upon by the teacher to resolve any problem they may encounter with the pupil. The PTA acts as a tool for parents to extend their help to tea chers. Recently the PTA asked youth members to discuss the responsibility of their tea chers and parents in respect to the affect that they have on their lives. Manuel Esquivel, a senior at East Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, touched on the responsibility of the parent in preparing the child to participate in his own _ education He told of a han dicapped student at school. “He was missing both arms, one leg, and was in a wheel chair, but there he was-in school, studying, trying to learn. It’s frightening, but it’s encouraging too, to look at a handicapped student going to school. It makes you look at yourself." says Manuel.
