The Message

U.S. Students Show no improvements in Math, Reading, Science. When did that headline message appear? The news may not read the same, but it clearly states the facts. Our students have not and are continuing to not perform at a high level compared to other countries. You can find these headlines from 2013 to theContinue reading “The Message”

Helping others focus on solutions

Be the solution daily isn’t something I decided one day sounded good; it is a daily practice I have used professionally and personally for decades. It is my hope to help and guide others into this practice for success. Where we place, our focus is crucial for our success. It seems we are quick toContinue reading “Helping others focus on solutions”

Things you can do Dad

“I write books and share tips and advice; the last thing I want people to think is that I sit on my high horse and have it all figured out. The truth is, my best advice and lessons come more from my mistakes and failures than success.”-Jon Gordon I have always been a fan ofContinue reading “Things you can do Dad”

Wednesday Wonders…

The final school bell for 2021 has rung for most of our students. Students have their final report cards but do we wonder how all of our schools did? What about education?

Is education the way to change the world? What does this statement mean? Do you agree with this statement? Is this how we areContinue reading “Thoughts?”

Why? This is a question I ask daily

I keep myself sheltered as much as possible from daily negativity. It is never good for anyone’s health to keep negative influences in your life daily. However, it would help if you kept yourself informed of current events to support others and yourself. Statistics of the number of violent incidents, shootings, and crimes are onContinue reading “Why? This is a question I ask daily”

Always learning

“Mom, can you pick up the kids at school on Thursday for me? Just bring them and meet me at my school so I can get them to their practice. Alex is going to get Alden from his school.” I love every chance I get to be with the grandchildren. They are the best! AbramContinue reading “Always learning”

I saw that…. Did you hear that?

Did you ever have a moment when you thought 🤔 did anyone see that? Well, you know they did! Someone always has a camera-ready phone to capture any moment. The same thing when you are breaking out in song to your favorite tune, definitely not in key! However, those are the embarrassing, funny moments withContinue reading “I saw that…. Did you hear that?”

Message received

Every day, we receive messages from others in many different ways. We also send messages in various ways as well. Managing all of these communications can be overwhelming, but we can also mishandle messages. What we say, the body language we use, and the tones used to send messages to others. I know for myself,Continue reading “Message received”
