“I attended Stephanie Potter’s presentation on Making Parents Allies at the Innovative Counseling Skills and Strategies Conference in June and was impressed with her down-to-earth approach on how to make parents allies and more involved in schools. Ms. Potter made it look so easy with her step-by-step process on how you can lure parents into the school setting and keep them there. She offers a very simple and direct plan, one that actually seems manageable and wouldn’t appear to take a lot of time to set up. She was entertaining, kept my attention and shared real life situations on how you can make this work on any campus. If we can have the parents and schools working together, “backing each other up ,so to speak then it makes working with those hard to reach or challenging students so much easier.” ~ Elaine Becker, Counselor
