Don't focus on achieving some dream made up by someone else; focus on fostering independence and becoming someone you're proud of.
Think about how you stand when you're dressed formally, versus how you may comfortably slouch when wearing sweats or yoga pants. How you look really does affect how you feel, and how you present yourself, and how you perform. So count me in as a dress code fan.
Eileen and Fabian were the Malaysian representatives for the Global Student Entrepreneurship Awards held last April in Washington D.C. Their business Left and Right Artisan Handcraft connects people, and captures moments through the form of handmade jewelry pieces that can be bought in their physical store in Malaysia.
It's really amazing to see how transformative entrepreneurship can be and the lessons one can learn from starting a business. This was the case for high school student entrepreneur Yasmeen Haider, the founder of Cake Pop Place.
Now that the end of the year is here I can't wait to throw our old school routine out and switch over to pool time, and I feel like if I have to pack another little sandwich into a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle lunchbox I will scream. All I can ask is please, please don't send their recorders home for summer break.
The publication awarded each school's student body a college readiness score out of 100, designed to measure how well-prepared students are to move on to a university or college setting after graduation.
Don't turn a blind eye to problems that need addressing. Children can suffer from mental health problems too, keep that in mind.
When you stop asking, "How was your day?" as soon as your kids walk through the door, you're more interested in being attuned to their feelings than satisfying your pressing need to know something. From what students tell me, this will be much appreciated.
We pulled on to the dirt lane. You couldn't see the entrance to the school from the sea of little people. The line of children was easily two hundred deep. They were here for shoes.
Some schools offer more value to students than others, even when those schools are similar based on traditional rankings standards. The Brookings Institution looked at colleges and universities in Illinois to determine their "value-added" -- how useful it is for a student to attend a particular school over a similar school.
Recruiting and staffing a company is time-consuming and complex. The pressure to fill an opening has as much pressure for the employer as it has for the candidate. In fact, there is more pressure for the employer as a bad hire is very expensive on may levels.
School worry and test worry are common. There has become an increased focus on grades, GPAs, and a fear-based mentality that kids will not get into a good college unless they have a 4.6 GPA. Sadly, this fearful mentality has trickled down all the way to elementary school today! What is going on? And what should parents do?
My suggestions are most easily applied in settings where both teachers and students have considerable autonomy, but I hope these ideas may be useful to teachers even in traditional settings.
Let me be clear from the get-go: no one has actually ever said these words. No, this is purely my sensitive Momma's heart hearing implications that may or may not be there.
