As forty five year old adult and my biggest reason for not being able to move forward was my inability to pass algebra no matter how many times i took it. I the same results failing during my one last time to take it. My professor saw how much work. I was putting in and still not getting anywhere. She recommended a class taught by jeannie weston at lake superior college and adult education class that went back to basics when i say basics i mean learning to add subtract multiply divide schwantz every student to learn how wipe things were done and develop that routine and she did it with respect for each student. Making every student feel amazing. Genie stated in in the beginning that no one failed her class and she'd be right with me till the end. Of course. I was filled with doubt during the semester. I was proven wrong. I not only pastor class. I understood the material and had fun. Never would. I thought it was possible from there on. I went and passed my first algebra class in at my age it was so overwhelming it was a milestone. I didn't think i'd see. I've been pretty lucky with my employment and health care.

He checks in with students to see how they're doing in their other classes. If he sees grades are slipping. He talks with the student to find out. Something else is going on in their life. That needs attention. He makes sure that all students get praised and feedback. Not just the ones in the top percent of the class if that student is struggling.

Welcome to all. Welcome to the bob and sheri show currently the only business in america. Not hiring that is the truth not the truth. I can't believe that you just said that. Because this morning while i was eating breakfast i read an article on inks website about the great resignation listened to this april may and june of this year. Eleven and a half million workers quit their job. Okay wait wait. And about half of the people in america who have a job are looking for another job is called a horde. It's called the great resignation. And the wouldn't people i mean that's that's so social upheaval. Real yeah and it has to do with Bernau according to the in. Which if you want i can post this on our facebook so everybody can go look at it but it has to do with. Workers feeling burned out and exhausted. It's not that they're just looking for more pay or more time off their questioning. Like the whole point of wire my grinding myself into the ground because this my life is this what i'm gonna be for life and so the article talks about like if that's the case if half of all people with jobs are looking for a new job and eleven and a half million people just said take this job and shove it. I'm out of here. What do you do to get people to stick around. You remember that post. I i that post that i told you about where some some guy said if you work long long hours skip vacations miss family time and work really really hard. You can end up like me. A mid level manager at state farm as a fine company. nothing against that but Sometimes you know the payoff is not what you thought it would be. I read in the wall street journal. They did an article about What's it like going back to the office because some places are encouraging employees. Despite this terrible second The virus that's sweeping. The nation are encouraged people to come back if they can in this one office i guess they had about thirty employees and they said not everybody is going to come back but we have core people that need to come back. And there's about ten of them and They spoke to these people about how they felt after a year and a half going back into the office and they were very tentative. And you hear the same things. I didn't know if i could interact as well. Socially i felt awkward Just speaking to people they said i had to get used to the fact that there is a view the device that looks like a roomba that goes throughout the office all day. Long to try to keep it sanitized. I had to get used to sanitizing my desk before. I left for the night and one person said somebody came in the second day and brought a box of dunkin donuts and.
