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!

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!

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,
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.
