Free virtual family workshops offered

The Delaware Department of Education is offering a series of free virtual family education workshops called “Parent as Coach, Developing A Family Dream Team.” Facilitator Darrell “Coach D” Andrews is a nationally acclaimed speaker, life coach, and father of four. Over the course of the next six months, Andrews will offer a series of virtual workshops with hopes of motivating and providing caregivers with user-friendly strategies to assist them in maximizing their students’ overall academic success.


Our fourth series, "Helping Our Children Gain Emotional Control,” will provide families with valuable tips for helping our children maintain emotional balance in spite of any life challenges. Translation services will be provided for Spanish-speaking families. See the English and Spanish fliers for more information. Included in the Spanish flier are instructions for accessing translation services via the Zoom platform.



While DDOE suggests participants join based on their county of residence to help balance attendance, families may join whatever night works best for their schedules. Below are the dates, including access information, for each session:


Please share and advertise this opportunity. Be on the lookout for upcoming information about the workshops later in the series specifically for English learner families. For questions, please contact Eric Stancell at or (302) 857-3333.
