3 Things To Know About Your Child's Analytical Thinking Teacher

It is almost back-to-school time again. In Alabama, many children will head back to the classroom during the first week in August. If you’re like me, you want to know as much as possible about your child’s teachers. However, as you might imagine, I like to know the teacher’s most preferred thinking preference (Emergenetics) or MPA.

Therefore, each week this month, I will post what you, as a parent, can expect from teachers who have thinking preferences that are either Analytical, Structural, Social, or Conceptual. The teacher with the preference for Analytical Thinking:

Enjoys technical problem solving


Likes math and science

Understands concepts and ideas

Likes exploring how things work
1.  He will grade your child’s work with laser like intensity. There is a reason this preference is called the “error police.” If a mistake is made, this teacher will certainly find it. Make sure your child proofs her work.
2.  If your child has a problem in this teacher’s class, crying will not gain much sympathy from him. He doesn’t look at life through a Social Thinking preference lense. For him, it’s all business or should I say, “Data.”
3.  Parents, during a parent-teacher conference, bring you “A” game. This teacher already thinks she’s smarter than you, so be prepared for an intellectual debate, if there's a problem.
