Four Questions for the President of the United States of America / @potus :) #servantleadership #family #community








1.  As President, the demands, duties and decision-making that need to be done and met keep you away from ‘being there’ for your family. 

Have you been able to find a work/ family life balance? 

2. Mr. President, a central aspect to to my work as a social entrepreneur was influenced by the examples of others, including your own work as a community leader. You went out there where the rubber meets the road and were doing your best to exercise justice and liberty. Over the last eight years, you have inspired millions of individuals across the U.S.A.  to go forth and be all that they can be and to do so by becoming socially active as positive builders of their communities. Past our borders and across the oceans, Mr. President, your name, Barack Obama, signals hope and change to being more sensitive, tolerant and outgoing unto each other. It also signifies the spirit of rising above our differences and working together on common ground.

What advice can you give to young souls across our heartland who are interested in keeping America great, but feel small and insignificant as individuals?

3. Mr. President, the truth of the matter in America is that  as a whole, it is both thriving and decaying all at the same time. This is part of modern life. Within communities there are many who answer the call to serve. Some don uniforms, others wear suits, and yet others show up on their skateboards. Some teach in classrooms, some are on-call to nurse at three o’clock in the morning, others teach soccer to young children on weekend mornings. Some serve by fixing lights on electricity poles, others by delivering packages, some serve by directing traffic while others serve by dressing wounds. Some serve by trucking food across America, others by teaching soccer air dribble and dancing to children on the autism spectrum. Some serve  by strapping their boots on as soldiers to protect our principles and way of life, others by simply just being a friend and recognizing the power of positive relationships in strengthening people from the inside out. All are committed people who believe in being their brother’s and sister’s keeper, even if we believe in different creeds.

How important is the practice of servant leadership to the welfare of the United States of America? What effect is created in communities filled with people who lead in service to others?

4. Mr. President, an orchestra conductor of a successful musical ensemble manages and directs with the end goal of reaching harmony in a goal-directed manner. This also happens to be close to the sum definition of executive functioning skill abilities.

On a local and national level, what have you found is the overarching need of the United States at this moment?

Thank you for your time, energy and focus. 
May God bless you, your family and all the people and families of the USA. 
We are one from many.

Clinical Teachers: Armies of One / #edchat #criticalthinking #education

It is not the responsibility of empty vessels to create the motivation to learn, but rather, the prerogative to teach, the very responsibility of it, must be entrusted to the teacher. It can be so, that according to a child’s social-economic status, a affluent upbringing can be infused with a ‘comfort space’ of human development not generally experienced in the life of the child who hails from a low-income community. 
This juxtaposition in the human development and daily experiences of the affluent child and the child who lives at or near the poverty line bring a different array of positive and negative forces which impact their general well-being. As these two general sets of children age, the difference becomes more contrasted and is clearly evident at the time both reach middle school years. One need only look at children who receive private schooling as opposed to those who receive public school education in low-income neighborhoods. A child who attends private schooling and then e…

The Golden Rule & The Duty of Critical Thinkers / #socialresponsibility #edchat #TeamUSA

updated 2:24 pm est 11/10/17 The idea of cultivating critical thinkers is easily a lofty ideal purported to be achieved throughout academia and espoused as the hallmark of journalistic integrity.  Achieving the critical thinking mind requires a certain bravery, wherein, once our ability to tap into our own knowledge of content matter is done, we must require it upon ourself to contrast our assessment and infer from an ‘outsiders’ point of view what is true and right and what is inaccurate and, even possibly, the propagandization of a special interest.
.
For the critical thinker, the affinity to discern is attached to our decision to look at the hard truth and favor this over our viewpoints, our political inclinations, and our stance on any given subject. This is hard to do.

In the following essay, I ask what exercise in democracy is achieved if political forces practice varying levels of indoctrination, in effect swaying public interest towards their ‘camp,’ rather than promoting …
