Life Changers Academy!

“Quality Education with a Christ-Centered Foundation”

Life Changers Academy

Parents: As you all are making decisions of where to send your children this next school year, and the year after that, and so on … research and learn the facts for yourself. Yes, there is a lot going on in education. No, there are no perfect schools, or districts, or teachers for that matter. Just like there aren’t any perfect children or just people period. Use your resources. Talk to your educator friends – not the bitter and miserable ones who don’t see the hope in ANYthing. Watch them closely. Their LIVES are miserable. Talk to those who recognize the need and own UP to the challenges. Those who are working withIN the system to change it for the better (Freddie Brooks, A Different World, 1993). Attend town hall meetings. Attend PARENT meetings. VOTE. Make your requests and concerns known. There are a lot of laws that are federal in nature that your state and city/county have no control over. The same at the state level that the districts/cities/counties have no control over.

Of course, we will all do what is best for our children. Be sure it is because it is best for the CHILD and not because you don’t like one rule, one teacher, two kids in another class, the lunch menu on Thursdays, etc. There is SO much that happens behind the scenes that all stakeholders have the right to know, but, just doesn’t for whatever reason. It’s public domain … it really is. You’d be surprised the JEWELS in a lot of the schools in your city, but, because of hearsay or stereotypes, you’ll never know that that one teacher (jewel) or principal (another jewel) had the background, skills, fortitude, compassion, and just that right connection needed to reach YOUR child.

This comes from a personal and professional place. I’m not sure why I went here. LOL. I just started typing. I love both of my children’s schools and I’ve had [minimal] challenges with both. But they both work best for my two. I work what I know and have to make sure they get what they need to be successful – challenges and all. Challenges are normal and are signs of growth and/or change and development. WE make the rest happen.

Love, Lucy – A Teacher Mommy
