Getting To Know Mike and Sally Cain
We are Michael and Sally Cain. Sally is a retired teacher, curriculum expert and Principal of 33 years. Michael continues to teach elementary school going on his 25thyear. We have taught side by side in multi-grade classrooms and have given presentations at educational conferences.
As parents we have experienced public education, charter schools and home schooling with our combination of three kids.
We have created Power Educating because we believe that families are the answer to creating a more successful future for everyone.
You probably think that raising our kids and dealing with school issues would be easier for people who were teachers. I proudly tell you that we struggled with the education of our children the same way you are or will.
The most important thing we have learned about educating children is that their success or failure rests solidly on the shoulders of their families. The family set the example of success to children. Children need guidance and boundaries everywhere they interact.
