Subtle Little Racisms
Subtle Little Racisms
Hey! Don't be that mean-spirited #teachertribe that hurts children because you haven't dealt with your ugly heart. Don't ignore, stonewall, gaslight them, leave them with their hand up too long, never acknowledge them, hate them, or talk about them. If this is you, you should go apply at the local library so that you can deal with objects and not one of the most fragile sectors of the human race...CHILDREN! Get YOUR mean heart right. Yup. We said it. Get your ugly heart right. Teaching is an OATH!

Aside from qualified academics and strong student growth in the at-risk population of kiddos, we are a learning campus for UNLV's School of Social Work and will have our Social emotional, clinical, and therapeutic services rendered by UNLV Interns for your kiddos! We will have therapeutic services right on campus and parents who are struggling with their children will have emotional support for anything that they are suffering from. Too tired to keep therapy appointments after work? We can handle it right on campus. Look at our world! The kids feel it too! We will hold family, individual, and group therapy right on campus if needed through our therapy offices there on campus. We believe in balancing the left and right brain; logic and emotion, in effort to create a stabilizing life force for the students. Through strong emotions and quality academics we plan to contribute to a body of emotionally balanced and literate citizens.

#Teachertribe does your personality clash with your Admin, but yet you are still effective, and somehow still always on the radar?! Then take your gifts and keep it moving! #BYE!! Here's to those that move around from time and time. Cheers. Keep the art of detachment close by. You learn more, see new things, meet new people and sharpen your craft. Let the jaw biting #admintribe sit there and stew in their need to control EVERYone and EVERYthing and you go start someplace fresh! Keep it fresh #teachertribe! #Move on!

#Admintribe! Stop harassing the #teachertribe about what you are too scared to face and fix on your campus. Yes! #teachertribe you are not imagining that! You saw what you saw and you heard what you heard. Your admin is looking for a frame and a cover and they will throw you right under the bus when they are of scared losing their own job. They will sacrifice you through the power of their pen. Here's what to do with that.

Bloom's Taxonomy Using the Domain of #CREATION to tap into the natural potential of #KIDDOS
Bloom's Taxonomy describes the cognitive process by which thinkers encounter and work with knowledge. The most powerful one is the domain of #CREATION because it is how we were designed in Truth.

Develop HIGHER LEVELS OF THINKING through Bloom's Question Stems, which you can find online! Ask higher level questions!! Plan your questions and put them in your lesson plans! You can find a copy of the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy Chart here. Use the highest domain!

Teacher, how are you showing up everyday? Are you aware of how you register in their eyes, minds, and hearts? It's not just about what students can do to please us; it's all about what you can do to meet them where they are with love. Meet them with love and they will transform for you in their behavior.

Part 1- Mental Health Associations in Kiddos, and Why Violence is a Major Influence in their Personality
Parents switch it up. Have a family book talk instead of incessant electronic consumption!  Reduce electronic hours and curb your kiddos' diet of violence. Find out who your kids are when you aren't there! Train them up in the ways they should go! Teachers CANNOT do your part for you! #ReduceViolentIntake

TikTok and Violent Binge Watching of Certain Popular Shows
TikTok and Violent Binge Watching of Certain Popular Shows
Parents stand up and be counted. And remember that SCIENCE MATTERS. FACTS MATTER and they do not change based on if you believe in them or not. This is your bag to reduce exposure to harmful seed planting in the psyche of your kiddos because YOU are the primary influencer of your child; be it good or bad, positive or negative. SO choose to bring some Kingdom principles into your kiddos lives and train them in the way that they should go. Get involved more deeply and stop using electronics as babysitters. Break up those television and video game hours and pepper it with crafts, conversation, and quality time. Hour after hour after hour of violent input affects your child's personality and aggressive nature. And for HEAVENS SAKE boycott the SQUID GAMES. I have NEVER seen so may headshot kill shots and I couldn't even continue the episode. I went in to see why our kiddos are BINGE WATCHING this violence. It's a training camp for mental instability!

STRATEGY: Walk it in Backwards
STRATEGY: Walk it in Backwards
How can we HIT THE TARGET. Teachers undergird the quality of the thought systems that little human beings will draw from as they prepare to govern the future, and thereby; we nurture the cradle of humanity.  It's too late for trying, our kids need miracles TODAY!! Right NOW is even better! We know that we are surrounded by the premise that hiring subs in place of teachers saves on the budget. No summer pay. No benefit pay. But who suffers! KIDDOS!!! We love our subs but TEACHERS are FULLY TRAINED IN PEDAGOGICAL SKILL AND IT MATTERS!!! However, we applaud anyone who truly wants to rise into THEIR PURPOSE AND CALLING to TEACH! It's an OATH. We have launched a course that will enable your SKILL SET TO SHIFT; to LEVEL UP. Do what it takes to break through the noise, and the learning loss and trauma because it requires greater than passion from the fuzzy place in your heart. That's part of it,  BUT IT IS SKILL THAT DRIVES IT HOME FOR THE KIDDOS but  SKILLED INSTRUCTORS AND TEACHERS that WE NEED ON THER GROUND!!  There is something in this course for EVERYONE! If you aren't a full teacher, but you want to learn more; or you are a new teacher but unsure of your next steps, then get with this COURSE and LEVEL UP. Do it for the kids in your charge because it matters for the quality of humanity tomorrow! Walk it in backwards today!
