Shaking the Foundation
To make someone change, you must make them uncomfortable. This book will make you very uncomfortable from the beginning to the end.
Shaking the Foundation gives the reader a glimpse into things that we take as facts when they are not.
Shaking the Foundation will shed light on many topics. From religion, politics, education, history & even more. I have struggled with these topics from a child even still as an adult.
This book is not for everyone!
The information in this book is not facts. The information in this book is only a conversational piece to encourage the reader to study to show thyself approval.
Ask, and you shall know. Seek, and you shall find. Knock, and the door shall open. (A.S.K)
Your journey awaits.
Most successful people can tell you how to overcome failure in life in the following way. Failure only comes to those who refuse to keep fighting for what they want. Success belongs to those few people who understand that failure is not an option but only a lack of action. Learn to say less and do more.
In my life, I have had many repeats of day one's in my pursuit of success. Day one's was when I had to start from scratch to get back to where I left off on my journey. It was my stubbornness that allowed me to accept going through my day ones. I had to learn to make my effort match-up with my desire and sacrifices.
Failure taught me the need to eliminate any and everything that did not align with my success goals. When you learn to eliminate the option of failure, you only have success as a destination. Being a visual creature, I had to view my success and know the route I had to take to get there. I had to learn how to turn the visions in my head into the vision board I saw every morning I woke-up.
sOMEBODY TOLD ME THAT i COULDN'T, SO I DID
I struggled with insecurity as a child that followed me into my adult years. The harsh opinion of others in my youth put a severe delay in me developing the ability to believe in myself.
Even today, I find it hard to look into the mirror because the doubts and the mental pain that I faced prior in my life smeared the true reflection of the greatness in the mirror’s reflection.
Through my trials and tribulations, I discovered one crucial thing that guided me on my path to success.
I am a survivor!!!
The day that I embraced that fact, everything in my life became easy. The only thing I needed to do was find the purpose in my life or simply live the dreams inside my mind.
Once you have faced all of the monsters and demons that made you run instead of standing your ground, you become a whole different person inside.
This book will reveal and explain the graduation requirements for High Schools in the State of Florida. This book will also break-down how graduating from High School is not enough to prepare many scholars for their future.
I wrote this book because it was in my heart to speak knowledge and wisdom to those who need to know that someone cares about their future and is willing to make their voice heard.
I wrote this book for many scholars to learn that graduation is the starting line and not the finishing line for their future.
Life begins after graduation, which is why you must plan your life before you graduate.
Inspire or Retire
I wrote this book for all overworked, underpaid, and never appreciated teachers and staff members.
This book is my way to say thank you to those teachers and staff members who still manage to touch the lives of their students beyond education and into learning new and exciting things using their unique learning style.
Dedicated educators and staff members are why scholars learn to stop dreaming and become dream chasers in reality.
Thank you to those educators and staff members who still work as hard as they did when they first started working with adolescents.
Hopefully, your continued passion and effort will inspire your colleagues to re-examine their current methods and philosophy regarding dealing with young and impressionable minds
(Invest in You)
There will come a time in your life that you realize that you can't fit a big dream in a small bag. The greatness within you will overpower the fears and doubts used to hold it down for far too long.
No more hiding in the shadows being afraid to shine bright because others may feel intimidated by your light that shines; let it shine.
No one else is supposed to understand your calling or know your next move but you. Make sure your calling and your next move is the best move for you and your future.
Be afraid of failure but be terrified of not living up to your potential and your standards for living your best life. Failure comes with pursuing success, so don't let it stop you from trying.
Nothing in life is permanent, so one bad chapter in your life will never tell your whole life story. Dare to be great even if you end up only being good.
Success is achieved in the effort and not the lack thereof…
There are times in my life where I stood up, but my mind wanted me to sit back down. Fear makes cowards of us all, but courage gives us the strength to endure.
Silence is a form of agreeance, and I can’t entirely agree or choose to remain silent in the presence of wrongdoing.
When you have a mindset like this, you will surely put yourself on the radar of those who don’t share your same feelings.
I knew that you would be considered a threat to those who do not share the same feelings as you if you care about what you do.
Those people will twist your words and use their version of the truth to represent the facts improperly.
Standing for what is right or needed will mostly bring you discomfort, ridicule, and pain. (Colin Kaepernick)
When you’re tempted to quit, remember why you started
This book is dedicated to all educators, administrators, support specialists, and people who go above and beyond their duties.
These special people go out of their way daily to ensure that the scholars they are entrusted with guiding, educating, and mentoring are safe and free to become the best versions of themselves.
This book tells my story, my journey, and my testimony of why I choose to become a Certified Teacher. I want my students to read this book and better understand the purpose that drives me to want to be in their service.
I want my students to learn how to ask their other teachers, administrators, support specialists why they decided to work for students and better understand them as people who care beyond their paycheck.
You can spend a lifetime looking inside the mirror and not truly recognize or understand the image staring back at you.
Regrettably, the reflection in the mirror you see is the image that other people may feel about you instead of how you feel about yourself.
Unfortunately, the principle of knowing thyself does not register with a person who never had a chance to get to see the beauty they have within because of the horror the world has shown them.
I learned to think about these three questions before deciding to speak or say anything that could affect other people.
(Is it true; is it necessary; Is it fair)
Is it true that at-risk students are negatively affected by their “Entitled” teachers? Both personally & professionally, for me, the answer is yes.
Is it necessary to write about an important topic happening to our kids at school? This book is needed because it sheds light on a subject/ topic that many educators know is a big problem in our school but chooses to ignore it because of the fear of losing their job or being labeled a troublemaker/ difficult to work with at their facility.
Finally, is it okay to blow the whistle on practices that I have first-hand knowledge of because of my position? Yes, because it is not okay for the victims to be victimized by someone who was supposed to help develop them into becoming a better version of themselves.
This book will give a voice to the voiceless while allowing them to tell their story to those who choose to listen. Will you decide to listen and learn how it feels to be an at-risk student dealing with “Entitled” teachers?
There are no elevators on the path to success! It does not take the money of a rich dad or the knowledge of a poor dad to tell their children about how hard it is to achieve success.
Although it may be challenging to achieve success, it is not impossible for those who are willing to put in the needed work.
Nothing in life that you view as success is easy. With this understanding, you will need to apply the following wisdom:
“If you do what is easy, your life will be hard. But, if you are willing to work hard now, your life will be easy.”
This book will explain the steps along the way to the path of success. I will give you examples and personal stories that I had to overcome with each step along my path to success.
I will share the tests that have become my testimony to others about traveling the path to success. I had to learn that if I failed or succeeded in life depended on my mindset and my ability to turn my dreams into reality.
