Call in to speak with the host
Parent Talk Live host Dr. Mike Robinson will discuss the importance of being involved with two amazing parents in Prince George's County Maryland, Barbara Fisher and William Rogers. Ms. Fisher was recently named a semi-Finalist for the 2012 Comcast Parent Involvement Award given by the Maryland State Department of Education in partnership with Comcast Cable. Ms. Fisher: Hailed the "Heart & Soul of Carrollton Elementary School," Barbara Fisher's personal involvement and commitment to the school and the community can be measured by the material contributions she has made and procured from the community as well as by her kindness and compassion. From helping needy families and planting flowers for "Beautification Days" at the school to preparing special occasion lunches for more than 70 staff members and opening her home to host the end of the school year gala, Ms. Fisher is a positive role model for the students and parents. Her grandchildren blissfully share their "retired" grandmother with over 600 students on a daily basis.
William E. Rogers is a single father of four children who works extremely hard as an entrepreneur. He does not usurp his role as a dad. He is very determined to help his children become successful in every area of their lives! Déjà Roger, who is 13 years old, attends Science and Technology High School. She is in the 9th grade and is establishing a 4.0 GPA. She, scored advanced on the State Assessment Test in both Reading and Math, takes Honors English, scored a 275 on the science and tech entrance exam, even though a score of 212 was needed for acceptance into the program, participates in the Science Bowl, takes Algebra 2/Trig.
It's good to talk.
