Education Reform Isn’t A 4-Letter Word

I am a long term passionate and dedicated educator who speaks from the heart for diversity of all students. The question that ponders my heart is why hasn’t the reality of education reform - ever addressed the physical abuse of licensed educators who are without representation? Most legal firms will not offer any assistance, only excuses. Education is a high profiled national issue in our country!  High profiled celebrities, corporate america, religious leaders, military leaders, human service entrepreneurs and everyday citizens are held accountable WHILE the physical abuse and psychological demeanor of teachers continues to go ignored and void? Sometimes,  it seems that the game changer’s ultimate -responsibility is to maintain workplace silence among staff members, especially the ones with higher stake interest and to h___ with those teachers of less corporate influences. It would also be interesting to explore the diverse percentage of exploded victim educators : Black & Brown vs non color - for male vs female.

The rallying voice is always TEST SCORES!   How can teachers teach in a hostile environment when license is threaten for any type of resistance? How can educators teach children to  experience educational success when the learning environment is hostile, dangerous and insecure?  Formal educational institutions  do not prepare teachers for this type of certification. Many times a great administrator is assumed to be one who demonstrates the greatest manipulative skills and silence staff for $$$$ rewards .  I cannot understand why bystander colleagues and  team members will remain bias and knowingly TURN their heads to allow fellow colleagues to sacrificially stand alone / terminated?

When Genuine - Education Reform - is initiated, our educational system will progress. Parents, students, teachers,administrators,and community leaders will joyfully link arms & hands for the cause of EDUCATION and therefore experience lifelong success with integrity !    Sounds familiar? ..... lEAN ON ME!

School Schedules and Working Parents

My heart goes out to the single and divorced working parents.  I truly understand the financial and schedule challenges for educating our children.  One of the least discussed topics for future parenting is "proactive - parenting training  and interventions for early parenting vs. career and academic preparation.  Life doesn't give us guarantees - even  for the best planned strategy.  What I do know is we should sound the alarm loud and clear to teens and young adults of the realistic challenges parents face on a daily base for parenting and careers.  Many parents have had to prioritize their parental obligations vs. careers until the  child older years - often with great financial sacrifices, but well worth the investment.  Parenting is both sacrificial and rewarding.  TIMING IS KEY!

Does Early Childhood Christian Education Impact Young Children As Secular Education?

Positive Impacts of Early Christian Education in Children

(Family and Christian Education)

As I reminisce the calculated thoughts of adult leaders, I am reminded that most adults judge from their own experiences or observations.  The educational system rely on a series of tangible evaluations to determine the validity of a child's knowledge and behaviors.  However, when it come to a child’s creditability (knowledge, comprehension, and application)  of his/her  Faith - and relationship with Jesus, some adults / leaders respond casually to substantiate his own authority in luau of the child’s age, limited knowledge of the child's Christian Education family history  / worship practices or the assumed  Christian Education level of the child. 
The times we are living in today mandated a rooted salvation and  is imperative that children are introduced and taught to build a progressive- personal  relationship with Jesus.

 I ponder the question: “ How is it possible that some professionals agree that children’s  cognitive and intellectual developments are enhanced through parental interactions during the prenatal stages  (through  voice/tone, touching - rubbing abdomen/ sensitivity, reading - language & vocabulary development)   which creates  advance comprehension  and  strong  intellectual abilities in the unborn child,  but when pertaining  to spiritual matters  ( such as the child’s sensitivity level  & his/her courage to openly proclaim  the Holy Spirit naming  Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior)  the child’s confession is denied?   People are seeking affirmation all over the world.  So much so that news reporters are sharing impacts from least to most.  All great leader will tell you that their success was credited to their faith.  It is very simple, the younger the child for commitment, greater the opportunities to utilize time for GREATNESS!   Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Scientist and Educator, George Washington Carver – openly credits their faith as a youth. 
 – Why would a Christian Leader procrastinate and hinder the planting and growth of such life changing – Eternal Seed in a young innocence child – before corruption?
Children and Families are experiencing tragedies everyday.  Many of these tragedies are sudden and seemly unbearable.  Usually a Clergy or Group Counselors are assigned to offer comfort and grieving support by connecting them to a religious founder, psychologist, or an author of a bestselling grieving book.
He that worship God, must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).  Know no man after the flesh, but after the spirit (2 Corinthians 5:16).  Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of heaven (Matthew 19:14). Let Him In (Revelation 3:20)
How can some Christians Leaders tell children to deny Christ now because you are to young in hope to embrace him later on when you are older?  When their hearts and minds are no longer interested and temptation is so much great?
God, our Father, and His Son, Jesus – do not know man or children by their ages, but by their spirit and heart toward him.   God knows the intents and motives of Man’s heart!  Innocence – “unrehearsed” ---   hearts of boys, girls, men, and women are what God desires to use.  One should consider the nature of the child who is proclaiming Jesus?  Humble, Peaceful, Arrogant, Disrespectful, and Violent?  I agree that Christ forgives all…. But we must not fail to remember that God does communicate with any quiet, sensitive spirit who desire and love him.   Don’t be mislead by individual personality types.    When a child publicly acknowledges Jesus as his/her savior – it is serious and could be very detrimental if a leader responded outside the character of Christ with rejection.  
I truly believe that the Holy Spirit knows all things.  He has given “HIMSELF” as a conclusive gift to be utilized by everyone, regardless of age to successfully survive  challenges and optical of life.  In other words, adults characterize the teen years as being most challenging for teens when expectations are high and adversities overwhelming.  It is during this period of life when teens face numerous private issues, who can they talk to when they are fearful and standing alone?  Who will give them the strength and courage to speak out?  To decide which group or situation to say “NO” to   OR  having the strength to expose wrong doers?   At this point , to a child/teen - just knowing God (the person, or who they heard talked about in church) is not enough!  They truly desire the need to talk to a friend, one whom they have a relationship with and above all, trust.   – The God that was denied of him/her when their hearts were tender and receptive.  Now that the teen has bonded with destructive peers, made some wrong choices to hide their pain – Now, everyone wants to gladly, forcefully, give him/her JESUS!  How would Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr respond to this?
Question is :  How might this tragedy  been avoided if the spiritual leader had embraced the child’s confession and provided ongoing - nurtured - spiritual growth to he/she and his/her family?
I remember many years ago, when I owned a Christian Preschool where biblical teaching  and devotion was part of our daily devotion.  One of our children suddenly died due to a fatal hidden illness.  This was our first experience to process this type of grief at a school of young children  and  I regretted having to greet and inform the children and parents the following day.  I prayed to God  for guidance in sharing such sad news effectively. As we began devotion, the Lord immediately gave me insight of how to handle this announcement.  We followed our normal routine with our standard bible questions -with so much joy, excitement, and praise!  That afternoon during pickup time, the children were anxious to share the news with their parents of the death of their friend/classmate.  Parents rushed to me saying,  “Ms. Wanda what is this about _______has gone up to heaven to be with God?”  There were absolutely “NO Tear” through out the day from anyone!  All the children played, ate, and slept as usual.  They actually made our day joyous!
IT IS IMPORTANT, ESSENTIAL , URGENT– to give children prenatal and early childhood Christian Education at home first.  Even if the child was born to unbelieving parents, it is still the authority and solvency of God to render prophetic callings as he pleases.  Greatness and Prophetic Callings throughout the bible  have always been initiated from  prenatal and birth of  leaders as children.   God ordains the path and journey for those he will pour into.
Don’t turn children away or deny them the ownership for beginning a successful life's journey, ….. They are going to NEED JESUS!

Coming Soon:   FAMILY RE-UNION

Dear Friends, 

I am a 24+  years Educator, Youth Ministry & Community Leader, Sunday School Teacher, and an Early Childhood Entrepreneur.  From being once married then to single parenting ~ truly,  I understand many of your obstacles. It saddens me to observe the disregard in many of our communities for not respecting household "Family Focused" time.

I applaud pastors, program headers and administrators who are sensitive to family time and students study time in regard to main stream educational events - Parent Conference Day ~  School Open House , Family & Religious  Holidays, Exams & Testing, and guarded Family Time of youth ministry volunteers.  After all, if not for the volunteers, EVERYONE would become a mandated youth leader.....( thinking on this one ? )

I stand with you asking God everyday to enable  me to set excellent priorities and to accept the necessary sacrifices for the greater prize -  a settled, clear thinking, healthy, balanced next generation!  When we understand the benefits and  consequences  of knowing how to put the "FIRST"  thing 1st,  everything else will fall into place.

Love you dearly

Parents Going To The School ( Parents, Teachers, and COOL DADS )

                                                        ·        Communication / Availability
Many students are excited about planning their careers and  enrolIing in classes for that pathway.  Students become very frustrated when forced to take classes “they feel” do not connect with their goals and become less motivated for applying themselves.  Parents can be very instrumental in supervising students schedule and/or providing enrichment opportunities for connecting that professional area.  If parents ignore this issue and allow it to remain un-addressed, then classroom discipline, class participation, and delinquent assignments may escalate.
Parents must be able to identify the learning style of each child.  Children, parents, and teachers learn and study differently.  Once the learning style has been established, parents will understand how to guide children in their studies and how to effectively prepare for test.  School Readiness 

All Students are very sensitive to the integrity and passion level of their teacher(s).  Many students behave differently in the presence of authorities and parents; however, the students’ morals are reflected in he/she daily observations.   FAIRNESS and HONESTY will build or destroy any school environment!   Students may not always admit it, but they expect to be held accountable for their actions with unconditional love, fairness, and honesty.

After over twenty-five years ago, my son recently met one of my former students at his work place.  When my former student realized that my son was his teacher’s son, he said:  “She was hard, but she was fair.”  I guess you would have to be an educator to understand the sentiments of that statement.  I smiled with a warm feeling inside.

Whatever discrepancies a student my experience, unconditional love - accountability and inclusion will motivate them to success.  As you can see, a school day may include many obstacles, but TEAM work is the key!   Parents, educators, and students must work as “Genuine Partners” to address all academic, behavior, and physical needs of the students.

HUMILITY + INTEGRITY = Phenomenon Character!

 HUMILITY + INTEGRITY = Phenomenon Character!

Many children have been raised to feel that certain public accomplishments are the ultimate fulfillment of life; especially those of public acclamation.  Later in life, you will realize that your most valuable and productive moments were those of an average day with friends and relatives whose talents and accomplishment were yet processing.  God has a way of equalizing insecurities (false security) so that our focus return and remain in him, with a heart of humility toward our fellowman.   Humility and Integrity is the greatest showcase of genuine THANKSGIVING; our truest form of Godly Worship.  We should never become mislead by friends in our society and assume their expectations for judging “the assumed” short comings of others.   God and education should polish our behavior for the journey of un- expectancy and the people we meet.  Parents, guardians, and mentors share these expectations.   At the end of the day, as we face life most critical crisis, we will remember that it was the love, friends, and kind words that we cherish most.”  The fall is not as great when we are on our knees.      

HUMILITY + INTEGRITY = Phenomenon Character!
