Dear Carpool-driving…lunch-making…homework-helping…summer-missing parents –
My biggest worry is making sure my kiddos start off on a good foot with their teachers so, every year (yes, even in high school), I send the attached letter to their team.
Just in case you are wondering, I refrained from sending the letter off with my two oldest to college (but I kept waiting around in the halls on move in day just in case someone needed me to volunteer to chaperone a field trip or bring snacks to a club meeting – no one asked me).
I thought the letter format might help some of you ease into the school year with grace (and calm) knowing that you have helped your family launch into the year! Enjoy the fun-filled fall days and take lots of snacks to club meetings – that opportunity ends too soon!
You can download your Introduction letter to the teacher here!
In my own family and in my work with hundreds of families, I often say this about parenting –
“Parenting is not a destination but a journey, with plenty of pot holes and smelly rest stops – but there are also breathtaking scenic overlooks along the way! Take the time to enjoy the view!”

“Amy is like Oprah – she’s the neighbor you love who is very, very smart”— Parent of 14-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter
Amy knows how to relate to children, and make them feel comfortable . My son was shy at the beginning but Amy asked him a couple questions about what he likes and immediately found the connection to him. He happily followed her in the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and preformed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s bc of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
She has been a tremendous help with family issues and getting our children organized for success in life. Highly recommend her.— Mom of three young adults ages 20 – 24
We read through your website from start to finish and were so impressed by your extensive credentials and training but, the real reason why we want to work with you is your clear enthusiasm for children and families and the wisdom and deep love you share for both!— Mom of 12-year-old child with special needs
