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

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.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a Magnificent Monday! I choose to move and live with joy and ease. I am enough! I love myself. I am inspired to be creative. 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

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.

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.

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.
