This week, Lisa Parisi, Maria Knee and Sheila Adams talked about parents not allowing permission for their child's work on the internet. Why does this happen and what can we do to make permission more of the norm?

Today's Conversation with Maria and Lisa was about parent teacher conferences. Once again, Ginger Lewman joined us. She has been thinking about making changes to the approach her school takes to conferencing with parents. We hope to have Sheila back with us next week.
The announcement of President Obama's speech to students caused many conversations across the US and that is the topic of conversation for today's show. Sheila was visiting relatives in Alabama. Her cousin Laura, a middle school teacher in Indiana joined Lisa, Maria and Sheila for today's show.
During today's Conversations, Lisa, Sheila and Maria shared their classroom horror stories - the things that you wished never happened. They were joined by Jan Smith from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The folks in the chat room had plenty of stories to share as well.
