Mr. Demby’s Teacher Tip Rant

Children can tell! Children can tell if you, the teacher, don’t like them. They can tell what you think of them, the moment of your first interaction. Most times, their instincts are not wrong. People always look at me weird because I fuss at my children. Sometimes if you walk by my classroom, you may hear me yelling. However, the majority of my students knew, that I was pulling the best from them. Many of them have come back to me, thanking me because I was the reason they wanted to come to school. I’m one of those teacher that is going to keep it real. I even had a few students that I told. “Look I don’t like you, and you don’t like me but since we have to coexist, let’s make the best of it.” by the end of the year we were a lot closer! Be real with your students, they can tell!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing Day! I am my authentic self. What others do and feel have nothing to do with me. I am guided by infinite love and I am always headed in the best direction. 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

Mr Demby’s Teaching Philosophy

Many people feel like it’s bad to be firm with students. Other teachers tell me, “You can’t yell at kids, it might make them feel bad.” But I yell at them, then talk to them. Sometimes I feel like as adults we have to force kids to do something’s until they are responsible enough to choose for themselves. Just like with brushing you teeth and taking a bath. Our parents have to force us to do it because it’s just the right to do. Then as we get older, they don’t have to tell us because it has become apart of us. Case in point. The first time I made my kids sit quiet and close their eyes and have a meditation moment, they weren’t taking it seriously. So I had to force them to do it and do it right. Now they request the meditation time. So it’s okay to have a “ don’t try me” as you teach. Kids know when you’re trying to help them versus trying to hurt them.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Marvelous day. I choose to move with joy and ease. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. I love 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

Lost in Translation

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! For reason I was way more inspired to write when I was on vacation. But when I came home, I had total writer’s block. Maybe at home I have so many worries that take control over my mind? I’m learning to clear my mind, in the midst of all the craziness.

Clearing my mind includes:

1. No Binge Watching Tru-Crime shows

2. Listen and read Louise Hay/ Abraham Hicks affirmations

3. Fill my mind positivity

4. Meditate

This helps me to come out of the weeds and no longer be lost in translation.

Happy Juneteenth!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Juneteenth.com says Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

Today Juneteenth commemorates African American freedom and emphasizes education and achievement. It is a day, a week, and in some areas a month marked with celebrations, guest speakers, picnics and family gatherings. It is a time for reflection and rejoicing. It is a time for assessment, self-improvement and for planning the future. Its growing popularity signifies a level of maturity and dignity in America long over due. In cities across the country, people of all races, nationalities and religions are joining hands to truthfully acknowledge a period in our history that shaped and continues to influence our society today. Sensitized to the conditions and experiences of others, only then can we make significant and lasting improvements in our society.

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.

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

It’s Possible!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Yesterday somebody asked me if I thought race relations in America can change and get better. My answer was. . . . It’s possible!

It’s Possible
When you’ve tried and tried all you can
And it seems like that’s not enough
Take a look around, and help someone else
You will see it’s not so tough
When you go through life and everyone
Seems to put you down
Don’t listen to them, follow your heart
And let these words resound
You can do anything
You can be what you want to be
You can go anywhere
All you have to do is believe
And when things don’t go right
And you want to give up
Just remember these words
That I’ve spoken to you
Just look in the sky and say
Anything is possible!
As you go through life, you’ll experience some things
That will cause you hurt and pain
Just press your way through and keep looking up you’ll see
There’s always sunshine after the rain
Always follow your dream, never give up
And soon you will find your way
Just keep fighting and working hard
And hear what I say
You can do anything
You can be what you want to be
You can go anywhere
All you have to do is believe
And when things don’t go right
And you want to give up
Just remember these words
That I’ve spoken to you
Just look in the sky and say
Anything is possible!
