๐Ÿ”†The Future is looking bright!๐Ÿ’ก Out of all of my End of the Year pics, I wanted to post this one the most. 
I changed a lot about myself this school year. 
These young men are a BIG part of the catalyst for the change. 
I was once a young man, a boy...I remember being rough around the edges, a bit rowdy, and thinking I knew it all. 
Eventually, I found my way๐Ÿ”Ž. I have yet to achieve all that I have planned, but I've come a LONG way. 
#2018 I did a lot of internal auditing. 
I realized that a lot of the time as parents and educators we tell our children/students to "Stop" this, "Don't" do that, "That's wrong" WAY more often than we tell them what they do right. 
We seldom tell them (or suggest) what they should or could do, we tend to only harp on telling them what not to do. 
What you put #energy into, WILL manifestโœจ

Focus on the positive. Nurture and feed that. ๐Ÿ”ŠLet them BE great. 
#Teach them.

1 Proud Papa here! ๐Ÿ˜ 
It is a DREAM COME TRUE that my oldest child has chosen the path of music like her Father ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ. This is my witty, Cali-girl, scary movie buff, brainiac daughter, Imani Christina.
To be honest, I don't worry about her too much. 
If you could overhear our conversations you'd understand why. 
She's got her head on straight, and she's destined for greatness. 
Amen and Asรฉ!

Been testing for the last 2 weeks โœ๐Ÿ“š. As we bring this school year to a close, I can't help but reflect. 
2018 makes the 7th year I've been in the field of Education. 
Whether as a Paraprofessional, Substitute Teacher, or Full-Time Teacher.
I've worked w/ Special Needs students, Gifted and Talented, and general population from Kindergarten to Seniors in High School in ALL subjects. *
*What do you think has been the MOST common question I've been asked by my students?* *
