Mr. Demby’s Teaching Philosophy

Freedom is given when you’re responsible enough to handle it. Freedom should not be given with age. The saddest classrooms are those 5th grade classes that the teachers treat like 5th graders but they still behave like 3rd graders. Teachers have to learn to only give freedom when it is earned not because of the age of the students. Even sadder, there are some high school students who have been given the total freedom of high school and they still need 5th grade treatment. Note to all teachers…. “ Freedom is given with responsibility, not with age!

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Wonderful day. I choose to move with joy and ease. Life is simple and easy. I love and approve of myself. I am learning and growing more and more everyday. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

And Let It Begin With Me

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I have often heard the song “Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me”. Well I soon realized that there’s no one else it can begin with because we only can control ourselves. We can influence others but ultimately the only person we can control is us.

Peace
What is Peace?
Is it the quiet of your mind?
Is it having things the way you want them?
Is it a feeling when things are calm as the sea?
What is Peace?
And if it must begin with me
I must be at peace with myself
Peace within gives peace without
Peace
Peace
Peace to heart that has grown cold
Is not the peace we wish for our soul
Peace to a heart filled with sadness
May be the longing for a little gladness
Peace
Peace
Peace to a heart filled with pain
May be just to feel the sunshine or rain
To feel peace
Peace
To feel harmony
To feel joy
To feel love
Love
What is Love?
Is it the two hearts joined together?
Is it knowing you’re accepted for who you are?
Is it the feeling when things are flowing like art?
What is Love?
And if it must begin with me
I must be in love with myself
Love within shows Love without
Love
Love
Love
If we are to Love
Let Love begin with me
If we are to Trust
Let Trust begin with me
If we are to Dream
Let the Dreams begin in me
And if we are to be at peace
Let peace begin with me

Daily Affirmations: Today is a lovely day! I move with joy and ease. I love and approve of myself just as I am. I live in a safe and secure world. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. I speak peace and love over our country. I am at peace. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM.

Soothing ANGER with LOVE ❤️

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! There is a lot of unrest in the United States right now. There needs to be something done. The rules of policing and due process needs to change. No matter what the outward problems, the inward problem is the lack of love. So I , with my small voice, speak love. I cover every city with love. I cover ever protester with love. I cover every police officer with love. I cover every government official with love. I cover every fear with love. I cover all sadness with love. I cover myself and my mental state with love. Let love fill our hearts and please share and spread love with me. Please join me in speaking and spreading love!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! A lot of times when things start happening for us that we had hoped would happen, it scares us. Wait! Stop! I should speak for me.

However this time, I’m going just stop and say Thank You! I’m going to stop questioning God and trying to figure out what will be required of me. I’m going to just be totally grateful and open to every new opportunity that comes my way! I’m grateful, thankful, and blessed!

Happy Kwanza Y’all!!!

Kwanzaa is an African-Americans celebration of life from 26 December to 1 January. Dr. Maulana Karenga introduced the festival in 1966 to the United States as a ritual to welcome the first harvests to the home. Dr. Karenga created this festival for Afro-Americans as a response to the commercialism of Christmas. ( https://www.africa.upenn.edu/K-12/Kwanzaa_What_16661.html )

You don’t have to be AfricanAmerican to celebrate Kwanza. The principles span time and space. All families should spend time at the dinner table and discuss the principles. It’s a time of family togetherness.

Another Year Older, but Light Years Wiser!

Hey Y’all! Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! As I am turning another year older, I take this time to self-assess. Where am I? What are my thoughts? What are my beliefs? What do I foresee? Now after listening to Dr. Andrea Dinardo, I’ve added, What can enjoy in my present moments?

The answers to these questions have put me in a great space. Just realizing my thinking progress ( yes I said progress) makes me feel good all! I am truly excited about life! Happy Birthday to Me!

Friday Night Vortex

Hey Y’all! It’s time to stop letting everybody fill up your time and space with all of their stuff. I’m learning to say no sometimes and allow time for me to just be. I take this time to see myself as I am. I go within and see the kind, loving, healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete person that I truly am. I have a goal to have $20,000,000 by next year. I choose my Friday time to just meditate on how it feels to have this money. What does it feel like to have a $20,000,000 birthright? Just to know that the money will come to you when it is time. You already have it. It’s yours! That’s just one of the things I meditate on during my Friday vortex time. There’s much more in my vortex.

Every since I heard Abraham Hicks talk about it, I’ve longed to be there. So I set aside this time to go there in my mind. Now I’m finding it easier to go there more and more. I am totally excited about my life in the vortex. Just like Cinderella found joy in her own little corner, in her own little chair, we should do the same. I sure she saw herself marrying the prince many times before she ever met him.

Daily Affirmations : Today is a magnificent day. I live a life of joy and ease. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. My dreams always come true. I am forever joyful. I can find joy in the midst of adversity. I love and approve of myself. My life is divinely guided and I am always headed in the best direction. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

It’s Fun Friday

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! As adults we sometimes allow ourselves to get bogged down with all of our adult responsibilities. We often forget about the little child within us. And today, it’s time for that little child to come out and play! For no reason today, just walk into a room and start dancing or singing like no one is watching. Try to get others to join you. This will be the energy that helps you make it through the day. A little child shall lead them, so let the child in you lead you!

Daily Affirmations: Today is a fun filled day. I dance like no ones watching. I sing like I’m in the shower. I live in joy and ease. I love and approve of myself. My life is fabulous. I look forward to what each new hour brings. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Progress

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Many times we measure success based off what a person has or what some did. However I like to look at things a little differently. Is there growth. Being rich but fearful of loosing your money all the time, is not considered success in my book. True success comes when you actually move forward in all facets of life. Mental growth would automatically bring about financial and physical growth. In this moment, you might not be as rich as you hoped or as famous as you hoped. But can you see the progress in getting there? You’re on your way to reaching your goal, and that’s success.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a magnificent day. I love and approve of myself. I choose to feel good about myself. My life is divinely guided and I am always headed in the best direction. I’m stronger, wiser, and better. I’m growing in Wonderful ways. My life is amazing. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD.

You’re Getting What You Expect!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers. Many times we don’t realize it, but everything that happens to us is a product of what we expect. It’s almost like we enjoy having bad days, just so we can tell somebody we’re having a bad day. In the same vain, people say I feel a tingle in my throat, I’m gonna be sick. Then they end up actually being sick. You’re getting what you expect. Some people think and say jokingly, I’m clumsy or I’m not good with this or that. Then it actually comes true for them. Why not change it around and expect only good. Even feel the tingle in our throats, we can still say, I never get sick. . . Turn your focus to the best possible outcome. Expect only the best and know that you deserve the best. Not because you’ve worked hard to get the best or you struggled so much that you deserve the best. Expect and know that you deserve the best because you are you! You are worthy of all good.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a magnificent day. I choose to feel good about myself. I am lovable and loved by all. I am worthy of my own love. I love and approve of myself. I expect the best now! I accept the best! I am willing to receive all good into my life. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
