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!

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

Parents Going To School (Parents, Teachers, and COOL DADS) SCHOOL READINESS ·         Class schedule                                    
·        learning & Teaching Styles
·        Integrity
·        Compassion / Passion
                                                        ·        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!



What Matters Most to PARENTS?

What Matters Most to Parents ?

(1.)  Speak the language that .... C A R E S
(2.)  Parents - Stressed Beyond!

Every parent long to hear comforting words of instructions from a voice  they love and trust.

The Most Dangerous Words A Parent Could Ever Say: "DON'T CALL ME"

   . . . . Don't Call Me !
Alarming Words That Demand  Critical Intervention
Some time parenting can be very stressful.  Not necessarily the child, but maybe circumstances within a given day.  It is obvious when parents have exhausted all areas of remediation.  Many times, all parents need to say is please help me and be willing to receive the level of help that is necessary to create the desired results.
Children, I mean those eighteen year and under can be very challenging at times.  Educators and other youth leaders and administrator are committed for the long hall to advocate assistance and provide academic and behavioral intervention to parents for his/her students.  Parents should stay in the game and never give up!  When you withdraw your support and say:  "Don't Call Me"  and willfully .... not attend meetings and appointments ,   it creates fear for maintaining a safe environment.
Parent Involvement is not an option,  IT'S CRITICAL  for successful students.

Believe it or not, no matter how wonderful and effective the presenter’s message and activities may be a great number of adults / parents may be offended just by personal feelings of rejection  “not being a good parent.”  I remember back in the days when I  heard many parents admitted in front of their children, their inadequacies  and lack of opportunity as a child for not  getting a good education.  Many things they didn’t learn; therefore would readily correct and demand diligence from their children for a better life.  Very few people are admitting any inadequacy  in today’s society.  Most of the reading materials are not written in a format that holds the attention of the parents who need it most, and a quick read.  It is impossible to relate to a parent or anyone who feels offended or inadequate.  Therefore, the approach must be “relationship focused” more so than teaching focused, or "telling focused."  Environment and facilitator / teacher are “key” for a successful parenting program.  Local church facilities could be an awesome location for familiarity, coupled with a “professional - humanitarian facilitator. “  All parent reading materials should be simple and loving  in language and relevant to their everyday challenges and experiences.  Most of the time, the information that is given to the parent who needs it most, language is “over their head” and does not connect.  That could be why certain “unprofitable – non classroom connecting - written materials” are read more frequently.  Most youth and adults are reading, question is: What are they reading?  My experience has been that approach is a very valuable resource for effective parenting.  Like the children, once a relationship has been earned, learning and advancement occurs for the entire family.  I strongly suggest (1) Availability of selective short, to the point, real life reading materials (2) Series of short “follow up” relating FREE speaker’s topics / films - with ending refreshment & fellowship (3) Give parents options for continued communication.  (4)  Teacher / staff do general “How are you doing?”  How can I assist you type follow up calls – Customer service.  Most importantly - respect the scheduling and time of the parents when planning such events. Always start on time and end on time, regardless of the number in attendance.    Read more in “School Readiness for Parents & Children, K-12    

From A Classroom Teacher - “SCHOOL READINESS – 2013” and Abraham Maslow !

 Chapter by chapter guidance is crucial for adults understanding the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs of  children, regardless of their ages.  All humans have the same needs.  It is urgent that parents and caregivers are able to differentiate needs vs. wants and understand the consequences for not meeting a human’s needs.  School Readiness for Parents & children, K-12 gives chapter by chapter, school life- answers according to Child Psychologist - Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
