Increasing a focus on parent engagement, Ms. Stevens makes every workshop, program, and speaking engagement; there is no substitute for family. As it is the company’s mission to change the nation one family at a time, it is Ms. Stevens’ personal mission to avail herself to the betterment of families all over the nation. She states,
“I will know I have succeeded when parents become engaged in not just school, but community affairs for the sake of their children’s schools; when parents of all socio classes share in the responsibility concerning student learning; when I see educators not cutting corners with disadvantaged students, because their parents are not aware of, nor can identify the prescribed assistance needed; when districts carefully connect their parent education programs to student learning, and take on the responsibility of developing educators, not just for the classroom, but for the community – when I see this being implemented systematically, I will know my work has been worth it!”
