Thought Provoking, When should a Teacher Retire?

Have you ever wondered this question?

The reason I am asking is that we have many students who are failing in today’s school system and it cannot be all on the students, we have teachers that are boring and have no life in them and some who are just waiting to die that is how long they have been teaching.

Let’s keep it real

When should a teacher retire?

1) 20 years

2) when they are no longer teaching, but just taking up space just to get a paycheck

3) when they die

4) when the students are not learning (when the teacher has a failing % of students)

We need to really think about this and come to a clear cut off. Since our students are the ones suffering through out the USA, our educational system is not like it was 20 years ago where a teacher is actually teaching and enjoying what he/she is teaching.

We have teachers that could care less if your student learns anything in their class and that is really sad however everyday we lose a student due to the fact that the TEACHER has FAILED them in so many ways.. why would you stay in a class or school who only wants you there for the small amount of funds they get for you being their daily?

  • Upcoming meeting dates: Read more »
  • Agendas of prior and future Board meetings: Read more »
  • Minutes of prior meetings: Read more »
  • Archives of prior webcasted meetings: Read more »

The State Board also has a website with videos on LCFF intended to support local school district implementation with the latest information and updates: http://lcff.wested.org.

All of theses so called items they are placing may not be a good thing if we are not thinking of our students first.

I have never been so disgusted then I am right now, as much as I have worked and helped and want each student to be able to learn in their own way, I now see that if things keep going in the direction they are going and the School Board is allowed to do these things then the only ones we will be failing are our students that we pledged to educate in their own communities.

So are we failing our students and not doing enough to educate them? That really is a soul searching question that needs to be answered by each and everyone adult that has contact with a child. If we are not making an impact on that child;’s life then what is our purpose?

I still have faith that we can help each student and make sure they have a education, but we have to remember not all students learn in the same way and that we need to make sure their outline is gained for them and the way they learn, There is no one way to learn and there is no one way to teach.

When is it considered CLUTTER?

As you drive/walk down Greenback lane and get near  San Juan Ave you begin to see a cluster of signs, I thought these were not allowed but I guess I am wrong, I know some type of  signage is not allowed.

However this looks junky and just plain out of place.

When is it just CLUTTER

When is it just CLUTTER

Why would these so called people running for a seat want their signs in front of a CASINO? right there brings out RED FLAGS. I will not vote or elect anyone who has their signs in front of a CASINO.  But that is just how I see it.

We are not teaching our youth of today the right things when they see signs like this in front of a CASINO. Do they gamble in this CASINO?

Needles Among Us {Needles}

As we were out walking this morning we ran across a used needle in front of  TOYS R US  and is no surprise or shock to be honest, the parking lot at the corner of greenback and birdcage st in Citrus Heights is a well known drug lot, this drug dealers do not care that they are selling their drugs in the parking lot of a children store

Used NeedleThey put the needle cap back on the needle so that makes us know they had some sort of common sense. But still we need to get this cleaned up from around here.

 Birdcage street

Birdcage street

We know there is not any neighborhood that is clear and free of drug users, it is part of society now and we do have to face the facts, as the economy get worse, we will see more needles and drug wrappings around all communities. Education for our young children and young adults will be needed  at a 50 % gain and we need to teach not lecture the youth.

How to discuss drugs with your children is a great site to get tips and helpful ways to discuss drugs with your family.

Being active in any type of sports also can keep our children off drugs, check out your local sports clubs, at this time Spartan Youth Football and Cheer Program are taking sign ups for their season. We also have a free football came that is being hosted by 3rsports coming up and it is FREE for all children from 6 to 14 years of age, regardless of where you live bring your child!

April 25th and April 26th 530 to 830 PM at San Juan High School’s Football Field.

3R Sports would like to invite all children between the ages of 6-14 to our 1st Annual Rising Stars Youth Football Camp Friday April 25th,and Saturday April 26th at San Juan High Schools McArthur Field. We are very excited about this years camp, and our camp structure will allow us to maximize your child’s time with our local college, high school, and youth coaches from the greater Sacramento area. It is an exciting time for Sacramento Football and our coaches are looking forward to giving back and teaching the proper fundamentals, and conduct on the field. We will be offering different age groups to ensure all kids are in a competitive group that fits their skill set. This is a “FREE” camp so nothing but the liability waiver, cleats, shorts, and your contact info is needed the day of the camp.

Senior Project Success!

I was invited to take part in Marisol’s Senior Project and I have to say it was well coordinated and very well laid out.

She raised funds for Cancer and will be donating the funds that were raised to a local charity. The League Owner and teams were so kind and so giving.

Senior Project time

Senior Project time

It is Senior Project time and many projects will be based on outside activities. Cancer seems to always the theme, however I think this one will be very good since it is for the TOP 10 Common Cancers…

  • Lung cancer was the most common cancer worldwide contributing 13% of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2012.
  • Breast cancer (women only) was the second most common cancer with nearly 1.7 million new cases in 2012.
  • Colorectal cancer was the third most common cancer with nearly 1.4 million new cases in 2012.

Men

  • Lung cancer was the most common cancer worldwide in men contributing nearly 17% of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2012.
  • The top three, lung, prostate and colorectal cancers, contributed nearly 42% of all cancers (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).
  • Other common cancers contributing more than 5% were stomach and liver.

Women

  • Breast cancer was the most common cancer worldwide in women contributing more than 25% of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2012.
  • The top three, breast, colorectal and lung cancers, contributed more than 43% of all cancers (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).
  • Cervical cancer also contributed nearly 8% of all cancers (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).
