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!

Mr Demby’s Teacher Tip Rant!

Parents! It starts at home! Let’s start teaching our children how to behave in public settings. If they’re not ready to be in a public setting, keep them at home and keep practicing. When you’re at a restaurant and people are smiling at you and your screaming child, it’s not out of amusement. It’s out of sheer embarrassment. Let’s teach our children at home!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing day. I receive all feedback with love. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. I love and approve of myself. 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

C’est la vie! Not for me! Not Anymore!

I heard a preacher say once that life is Spills, Bills, Ills, Pills, and Wills. He said in life when start out going smooth until we have some spills. The spills cause bills. Because of working so much to pay the bills we get ills. The ills make use take pills. Until we die and leave a Will to give someone else their chance at Spills, Bills, ills, Pills, and Wills! Most people call that the rat race of life. That’s Life… get over it! I say not anymore! Not for me! My thoughts create my reality so, I’m choosing better thoughts! We all can break free by choosing better thoughts!

There’s a scripture that saids that God knows the plans for us already and they are plans to prosper us. Not sure if that’s the exact translation but that’s the one I’m clinking to!

Make Right Choices?

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I just realized that right choices are totally in relation to what you are taught. For some the choice to make somebody hits them, is to hit back. For others, the right choice is to walk away and get help. However, they both could’ve used the method of Stop, Think, and Breathe and Make the Right Choice. There people who feel like the right choice is to steal if it keeps them starving or if they feel like the person they stole from won’t miss it. It’s all relative. It seems every situation has its own right and wrong choices. Maybe should say right and different choices. So I think 🤔 when deciding whether a choice is right or wrong, We should look at the consequences. Which opens a whole set of choices.

I wish could make an app for kids and adults where they could put in their scenario, and the app would give them the best out of 3 choices. Sometimes people need a little push in the right direction.

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing day. I feel great. I’m glad to be alive. My choices lead me to a better life. I am a decisive person. I love who I am. 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

Liberty and Justice for All seems so Far Away!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Today I really need encouragement and good vibes. Everybody has seemed to jump on the bandwagon of hating looting and rioting and not hating the fact that the police have unjustly killed black people for years and years while no laws have changed. Well actually the laws have made it easier for police to kill black people and not be prosecuted. I feel myself slipping into a dark place that I’ve never been in before. There’s no way we should give police a free pass to kill anyone. I think if a police officer takes someone else’s life ( no matter the color) they should have to go through due process. When I as a teacher, hit a student, whether by mistake or on purpose have go through due process until I’m found not guilty. Police should have to as well. You know what happens before a teacher ,that has gone through the process of being prosecuted, hits a child? They think twice about it. That’s all I’m asking. If police had to go through the due process of being prosecuted after using deadly force, they would think twice before using it. I don’t know but something has to change? Our president seems like he would just rather kill all the black people in this country. And some white people have turn the death of George Floyd into a game- The “George Floyd challenge” like it’s the new meme. I guess liberty and justice are relative to skin color.

I just need some positive energy. I don’t see a way out. All my positive affirmations don’t seem to be helping me move toward the light. I need help.

This is how I feel…. https://youtu.be/LJ25-U3jNWM

But this is what I will say. . . https://youtu.be/COE6YHIK-pU

Daily Affirmations: today will be the day the sparks change. I love myself and I love others that aren’t the same as me. I am loved by all. Our single lenses are becoming one. I don’t to agree with you in order to see thing through your lens. I’m willing to believe that things will get better for us. ALL IS WELL IN MY MIND. ALL IS WELL IN MY HEART. ALL IS WELL IN MY LIFE. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove

Good Mourning!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! It’s probably a shame but I just realized that Memorial Day is day to celebrate those who have past and gone. So I guess I’ve never celebrated this holiday correctly. I normally just find somebody who is cooking and go over there house and hangout/ eat all day! However, yesterday I was invited to an online Memorial Day church service. At the beginning of the service and throughout the service they flashed pictures and funeral programs of people who died last year. They sang sad songs. It made me wonder why do people do that to themselves. If someone died and it was a sad occasion, WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU WANT TO RELIVE IT EVERY YEAR.

This made realize that in some way, people get joy and meaning from mourning the death of a loved one. I guess it’s feels good to just remember that person. Hmmmm?

I thought about it. I do enjoy remembering my loved ones. Almost every time we sit at the dinner table, we laugh and tell the stories of family members that have died. Not of their deaths but of their life. This made me realize that mourning the death of a loved one is good. The more you remember the life of the person the better you feel. It’s sad at first, but after a while you will get some type of joy and fulfillment from remembering. So I say Good Mourning!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing day. I feel good. I love my life. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. It’s good to remember my loved ones. I am thankful for all that have gone before me. 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.

Trust Your Feelings

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Many times, I look outside myself to get someone else’s input on things happening in my life. “There has to be a reason that I don’t have a the money I want, the husband I want, the house I want”. So I talk others and ask them, “what’s wrong with me?” So then I take their advice, and then feel further away from what I want. Until it feels like I can’t trust myself anymore. After a few times of asking others what they think I should do and them stirring me in the way that they think but might not be right for me, I had to stop myself.

Kyri! Trust your own feelings. You do know what’s best for you. Just saying this helped me to lead my life in the way that I wanted to. I don’t have to base my life on the thoughts of other. I could trust myself. And that’s okay!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Awesome day. I choose to feel good about myself. I love and approve of myself. I trust myself with myself. 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
