“… outstandingly warm, perceptive, and practical suggestions for making transitions as rewarding as possible for our military kids…”Military Spouse Book Review


Military-connected students move frequently, changing schools as many as nine times from preschool to high school graduation. With each move, they adjust to a different curriculum, meet new teachers and coaches, adapt to a new learning environment, and develop new friendships—all amid other military life challenges, such as a parent’s deployment.


Seasons of My Military Student helps parents and teachers:

-- Understand the Seasons of Transition(TM) and the storms of military life that impact a student’s education

-- Employ key provisions of the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children

-- Create an effective portable Seasons Education Binder

-- Work together as a team to support a student from grade to grade and school to school

“This book is an absolute must-have for the parents and teachers of mil-kids, and a comprehensive tool in helping our military students thrive throughout transition … Seasons of My Military Student comes complete with conversation starters, tips and solutions aimed at educating and equipping parents, teachers, counselors … to work together in setting our kids up for success at their new schools.” — MJ Boice, Military Spouse magazine



"Seasons of My Military Student ... from that big-hearted powerhouse of a press, Elva Resa, publisher of many military-family-focused books ... aims to provide parents with tools to help their children through multiple moves and life changes, acknowledging the hardships of this lifestyle while also celebrating the unique resiliency of the military child. ... Seasons doesn't claim that any of this will be easy, but it does offer outstandingly warm, perceptive, and practical suggestions for making transitions as rewarding as possible for our military kids." — Andria Williams, Military Spouse Book Review
