I'm a home educator so I selected "other" as K-12 doesn't truly describe what I do each day. Yes; I work with my K-12 children, but I also do special education, college level work, arts and crafts, driver's ed, and self-education.
I do believe that most parents are educators. They are the ones that generally teach the abc's, 123's, tying shoes, social behaviour, beginning cooking, fine and gross motor skills. Unfortunately, I see so many parents that are waiting for their children to enter school so someone else can teach them these things. The short time that my kids did attend traditional schooling I was amazed at the number of children entering kindergarden who didn't know how to hold a pencil or crayon!! How can a child get to 5 years old and not have experienced at least crayons????? (sigh)
