Progress slow as urgency grows on virus relief legislation
"Saw potential step forward in the congressional negotiations for another corona virus relief package after weeks of Resistance Senate. Majority leader Mitch McConnell said he will support an extension of the now lapsed six hundred dollar federal unemployment insurance relief every week that is if president trump backs it. The American people in the end need help. And wherever this thing settled. Between the President United States and his team, it have to sign it into law. And the Democrat. Not Significant minority in the Senate and majority in the House. Is something I'm prepared to support even if I have some problems. With. Certain parts of it. So, Jake Sherman, you cover Mitch McConnell you know him very well that's as close as you'll get to seeing. Mitch. McConnell concede there where he effectively said, okay, I know this bill's been sitting on my desk for three months. I've got some problems with the Democrat bill from the house, but I may be willing to budge on that six hundred dollar weekly payment. The original counteroffer from Republicans as you know had been two hundred dollars a week. So if he concedes on that point, get six, hundred dollars a week of unemployment benefits to people who need it. So desperately right now does that mean we're going to get deal here. Will I think Willie? We're going to get a deal at some point in the next week. It looks not promising, but it looks possible. Here's the catch Mitch McConnell's not a part of these negotiations right now also for the first time in a long time, we could kind of say that Mitch McConnell's view here is a little bit tangential to the overall negotiations. Now Mark Meadows and Steven Mnuchin who have been in the negotiations have offered four hundred dollars a week until December fifteenth, which also by the way is a very big concession for the GOP people. We actually in playbook this morning give a blow by blow full with good chock full of quotes from inside of the negotiating room. During a two and a half hour meeting yesterday in the capital illustrating that there are a lot of issues that remain open to get corona virus for leads to American people just to give a sense about how far we kind of our from virus package, they are bringing in the postmaster general today to talk to the negotiating team about the needs of the US Postal Service because there is such a divide on how much the post office might need to complete its operations. So again, these negotiations are very fraught they're complicated and they're dragging on almost two weeks in I. Think we'll have another week at least before this bill is passing both sides want to get a deal before Friday. Jonathan Does Jake says Mitch McConnell's not involved particularly here. Specifically, neither is the President United States. He's taken a hands off approach to the entire negotiation sending US chief of staff. Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin into do the negotiating here. How badly does the White House needed deal? Does the president recognized that more than thirty million people just lost that six hundred dollar week check that's allowing them to survive for the last several months urgency from the White House on this. There is really the president in the last twenty, four hours or so has insisted he is playing a role in these negotiations, but we know that is largely not the case that he has need. Deferred it to his chief of staff and Treasury Secretary and Jake don't certainly don't extra job outlining how these negotiations have gone. But yes, there was a keen awareness that this is a president who's facing voters in under three months and that Americans are hurting right now and then beyond just wanting to have a helping hand to those who have suffered so much during this pandemic of course, there's an towards his reelection chances here, and if unemployment numbers can you to go with the economic slowdown, economic recovery slows down that only hurts his chances. They are trying to push here. The they understand that they're in a bad spot have not gone well, the each day that it drags on is a bad day for this president who again is trying. So desperately to pointed idea of a recovery economic recovery as opposed to how he has handled her barracks better said handled the coronavirus pandemic to this point.
More Shows To Watch If You Liked HBO's Watchmen
"We're GONNA talk about recommendations. I for the long haul and these are things that we are either current or in the way back and there's this you know the. He is like when I sit down to try find something there's so much going on that I spent like an hour being watched I don't WanNa Watch. That should do this and it's like I, just want someone tell me what to watch. That's what we're going to hear for. Yeah. So we're GONNA basis off the some of the nominees for best show in the emmy categories I start off with HBO's watchmen as from Damon Lindelof this set in an alternative universe and drafting off the ground and comic book watchmen is It's like this dazzling procedure designed to also make you think that twenty six emmy nominations, the most of any serious. Like NERF gun to your head best show of the year. What would you say? Oh, it's watchmen watchmen to me like for limited series. So it's an a different categories, but I would even say it's better than all dramas on I. Think. So it's it's crowning achievement of TV this. So for sharp for me, I'm I'm thinking of like I want a show that looks great. Visually also will make me think. So I I wanted to go directly off of Damon Lindelof because I feel like he's kind of peak of his powers right now. So guys are wondering like other stuff he's done and I I can't think about the leftovers it's a similarly. It's a great show. It's alternative universe incredibly well, made really thoughtful but also like very simplistic in terms of you applying it to your that feels like watchmen felt current but also set in a different time. And leftovers current but also sat in a different times. So I love that the weirdness of the masks in watchmen which was so precious. So yeah, it's it's. It's phenomenal the other one I was thinking of when I want to. Recommend a show in in that Washington vein I'll say Black Mirror it's close enough. It's not really narrative based. Yeah. It's vignettes and different standalone stories, but it's kind of an alternate. Reality it looks close enough to realize that you're not sure that it's not. Yeah. But it's also telling us some darkened weird stuff about yourself. And the good thing about Black Mirror is to watch it. You're not watching it in each episode is its own Y'all episode so That's will put like some of our own favorite episodes that we both have really loved that we can include in the note. So you don't have to wonder because listen that first episode it's Just you just need to skip it. Hear me if you don't hear anything else if you don't hear Jamie doing the weird change of momentum at the beginning of the show if you forgot that already that's okay. Forget it. Here me this do not watch the first episode. Mom Don't do it dad don't do it much mom don't do it nobody do. It. Would be a mistake. Okay. It's a for me. If you love watchmen where you're like, that seems like it's good. Let me tell you to other shows that are good. So on that flakes, you can watch Jessica Jones I chose this because you got strong female lead just like you have in watchman, you have a superhero component which you also have and Jessica Jones it's dark. It's Gritty the villain in Jessica Jones is played by David tennant in that first season and he is per faction it keeps you on your toes. It's also very you're very to the visuals also recommending legion. Hulu. That's weird. Right because I think when you watch watchman, you're like I'm confused. Limits where you're like I, need to watch this again. Being, existing Ip it makes you think should I know that and I can confirm I. Didn't know. And watchmen I would sometimes read like recaps after I. Would Watch an episode and that would help me catch things maybe that I didn't grab the first time with Legion stars Dan Stevens? Famous playing. Matthew on. Downton Abbey He. It's a done by Noah. All Superhero Jason because this is the story of professor x his incredibly powerful, mentally ill mutant sign and so it's it also stars Jean Smart who is also in watchmen man she's in a Lotta. Golf that she has very good taste, and so it's weird enough that you're like It's not that classic Superhero which is what I also like about watchmen if we had done if we'd time traveled and done a designing women saying draft Jean Smart would not be my. Number. One pick would be any pots it would be we'll for private. Not. It be any pods, Anthony Delta Burke Julia sugarbakers. dixie Carter lab next to last over Jean Smart. Yeah. My point here is everyone would have been before Jean Smart Jean Smart was second. I'm going to be in Sweet Home Alabama and you're not going to know what to do with the low key cares. Okay.

It congratulations. That's awesome and ten minutes later after it open, the file is next email was what the fuck is this. What's wrong with you? What are you crazy like I didn't think about things like this. For example, the cost of printing a nine hundred page book. He goes. What do you want to sell a book for eighty dollars and I was like oh? Yeah. That's how this work. It's not unlike record. Basically, I wrote a triple album out of the gate and he was like, yeah, too much too much. Well, you could have done. Well, here's the thing for me like you. So hearing that is having done a couple books myself. Not An autobiography I'm still working on that, but having done a few I know about that editing process and it could be agonizing as an author because you feel like everything you put in, there is really good and should be included and is a big part of the story. So did you leave it to them to do the tough cuts or did you have to dig into it and really do some self editing? Well Eddie to that point. I. Believe I'm the first person who said this is nine hundred and fifty pages of pure gold. Yeah Now, we'll see that's my partner. Steven Hyden the simplest way to describe what he did. With I. I wrote the songs and he produced the album and what I mean by that, we got together ahead of time and we just established the timelines together like I. We talked it through. I have a very linear chronological memory and we started with me moving to Atlanta and he just led me like breadcrumbs through the whole story and we. It was just conversations where we recorded by cowling of the the art like this happened this, the the met them and. So I had. So we put together like forty chapters of my my audio breadcrumbs for me to venues to go right the story, keep me on a on a linear path in writing. And so that was hugely important and then, but I went I wasn't wrote the thing, and then when it was all said and done as I was finishing chapters, I'd son the Stephen. and. He was aware of the fact as I was writing it this way longer than anybody's expecting and probably longer than any was gonNA. WanNa publish. So in his mind, he was I think already. Paying attention to the overall narrative arc and looking at things that don't necessarily move the story along, they might be funny or they might be crazy, but they don't. Keep the momentum going. So he had a really good overview from the minute I finished already in his head of what he thought could probably come out if need be and that was hugely important for me because when they told me go away and edit it you know the editor said I'm not gonNA edit this. You'll hate me why you guys gotTA. GotTa take the first path and so Steven Hyden was huge and that because he was able to speak to me talking me off of my perch of, but this is a blockbuster brilliant book. You know and he said, no, hang on the pitch stories are great. But four of them are all of similar. You know what? I mean. They're telling the same. In the grand scheme of things, you're kinda repeating themes and the reader doesn't need the readers. You know, give the reader credit. They know who the characters are real soon and they get your humor they get. Stuff deprecating, you don't have to keep going to those wells, blah blah blah, but he was instrumental in making me see. Where we go and I mean, it could have been edited a million different ways. But we came to this one really pretty quickly. You know I mean within a month or two. We had basically what you're reading, and then it was a matter of just the copy editing, which is where you pick every sentence apart. Make sure that the ten. Grammar. Jerk. You know I'm a real nerd for that stuff. So I I actually enjoyed. Tearing, apart, my own stream of consciousness writing and making sure the verb tenses. All matched up and all that kind of stuff.
Dr. Howard Fullman: COVID, Probiotics, and the Impact of Coronavirus on the Future of Medicine
"We're honored to have. Dr Howard J foam and join us to catch up on medicine, practice and politics prevention, and of course a bit about our fight against. COVID nineteen so may we suggest that you pull yourself a double. Sit back and join us on medicine. We're still practicing I'm bill, Curtis. I are host. The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care. My very good friend Dr Steven Taback, however you, Steve Hey bill good to see you. We haven't had dinner together for a while I. Don't remember what it was like. They actually have dinner and enjoy an evening. So you know we have one of our favorite experts rejoining. Rejoining us today Dr, Howard J. Felman he is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology will learn more about that. In a minute Howard, served a multi decade tenure at Kaiser Permanente Day as partner board member. President of the Executive Committee Chief of staff and chair of the Quality Committee. He supervised forty three hundred staff over five hundred doctors. Howard is now senior operating advisor. Advisor at the Atlantic. Street capital for their medically focused investments Dr Howard J foam. Welcome back I nice to be here. Stephen nicest to us well Hey Howard. Good to see you so last time we met in our studio in Malibu was only back in February and it seems like a whole lifetime ago in quite a year, and we're only halfway through it and we know. Know there's a lot more to come Howard. I hope you'll forgive me, but I took my nasty pill this morning, so I want to dive into a difficult issue, but as the time of this recording according to Johns Hopkins, Japan although infected early has less than one cova death per hundred thousand population, while the US has thirty nine Cova deaths per one hundred thousand population. Japan more elderly per capita than any other country. They kept their borders open during the Wu Han locked down there, stay home requests by Japanese. Government have been voluntary, as was any of the closing of their non essential businesses. And now for a country with one city that houses more than thirty seven million people. They have less than a thousand deaths countrywide, but the hell is going on I. Don't know that anyone knows exactly all of the differences, but I'll give you. Some and I think that may be different. One is there's probably a genetic component to this disease that we don't quite understand. People were speculating. Why was so much more Italy because Italian get together a lot more than others people wonder with net net might have been some genetic predisposition. She decided kind storms for example, another article morbidity in patient population, so age is one thing you're right. Japanese population is actually older than the US. By other commodities like obesity, which is turning out to be a significant risk factor here is unfortunately. It's still a lot more obesity united. States than there is Japan so just because we've sorted out that the age factor may not explain it, but we have some more chronic illness in the United States spend maybe contributing to it as well and then you know the way we've handled. Handled the public health aspect of this and again I also wanted to be very careful about criticism of even the public health system because I'm sure there's a lot of things we look back and could have done differently, but we also have a lot of public health officers. Some extremely courageous ones and I'll say that I think unfortunately a some of our public does not really believe. Believe in this pandemic, the seriousness that they should, and that may be affecting the outcomes as well. There are certain communities as you know. Where substantial numbers of people were having just seemingly significant disregard, and so that might have been large numbers coming in at a just a bowl of people coming in all the ones that saturated the healthcare system made it hard to take care of. Of someone people possibly people coming in later than they should have because perhaps denial about the significance of the Selma's when it is on severe, and it's not be causing a doctor that I. don't WanNa Fault. The nurses and the doctors and rest of just I've seen what they're doing. My follow it very carefully, and I'm very proud of them, but I think because of the. The differences in population and our public health system is not working well is not resigned the way it should be, and there's not functioning in the way that it has been planned to function the

And, if you're listening to this in like two thousand thirty four. And you don't know what I'm talking about. we were in the middle of this Cova vid. Pandemic. and. It is wreaking havoc all over the place and one of those places schools. Ebay right now, and we send kids back to school in September and August, or do we not? Is it safe. Kids going to get infected really to carry to the teachers going to get infected the administrators. So a schools. Are Modifying Their Dylan.

First Letter of their last name. Yeah, try saying that three times. A to L.. Goes Monday and Wednesday. MTC goes Tuesday. Thursday Interesting. On the two days are not in school. They are in virtual school. They call hybrid learning. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I don't think it's GonNa work well maybe. I don't think it's a lock. Not a betting person. But I wouldn't. I wouldn't I. Just don't feel it. Be Honest, but today's while planning ahead. Today is about and I talked about this a couple of weeks. You're contingency. We know it's coming. Here's the difference March April. It came out of left field. One day regular life as usual going to school getting on the school bus, driving to school whatever you do. Get there doing school coming home going basketball orb. Wrestling or swimming or clubs or whatever you do? Come do homework. Just another day at the office accepted at school. Bang over the course of three shutdown done can't see your friends. Nobody knows what's going on complete confusion. Turns into the classrooms in instruction. And frankly a navy. This is a little bit controversial. I'M GONNA say it anyway. I don't think the schools really completely recovered. Saying that from working with students do tutoring. I was seeing some really light weight. education going on. Students basically companies need help. Rate, would you learning? I don't even know they would say. Teacher said to watch a video and do a worksheet. Anyway, here's the different. We have five months now plan. Six, months, maybe. There needs to be played so the schools to have a plan. The teachers have to have a plan of course and I suspect they do. But. Let's not forget. Families Parents Students. We need to have a plan as well. Okay! What's your plan? What are you? GonNa do if the virtual there and you just not strong virtual. We can't pay attention. You can't sit stair to commute for six hours. What if you just don't feel safe and comfortable going into school? And you have your anxious that you may get sick, and so we'll see you can't focus. You gotTA plan ahead. Uses knocking to blindside anybody. We just don't have that excuse right now. So. Let's talk about what you can do plan. First of all. Make sure you got your technology in place. I talk a lot about. The structures you need to have. Technologies one of them. If you're going to be online by definition. Using Technology Maybe! You got upgrade your Wifi. Maybe you gotta upgrade your hardware. Shorts an expense. You've got to rely on it though it's. It's a cost of doing business as they say in the business world. It's a cost of doing education have an old beat up owner. A chromebook is four years old, and the hinges are falling off. Probably not gonNA make it through. Nine months of virtual education with any level of quality. Maybe gotTA. Get better. Desk. It's not great. Do Homework sitting on your bed? Some people. Do they like it and I'm not saying it's can't happen. But not six hours a day. Yes structure. It's another one of my. Important things a physical structure? Where are you going to work? What's it look like? Is it well lit? Is it flat of space to get your books and your notebooks? Your computers out? Things you don't really think about until you need to know. But then sometimes you know pretend to prepare. I was growing up. I had to share a study space with my other sister. And it was like a race. After dinner, we hustle up to this room to spread our books out. My sister getting axios less when it come up there. Did it. took all the space. Truth as we did, she was right. Up to your. But we have limited space little house. A, big family. So we need a physical conditioning to make our work work back then. We didn't have computers have calculators. I grew up in the Stone Age. But again. Let's get back to planning so what you plan for your tack think about. What's your plan for your physical structure? What's your schedule? Do. You have to make your own schedule schedule going to be dictated for you. It's going to have to make your own schedule. Yeah I, think about it in our plan ahead.

Steve, green the success Dr. how are you? Important stuff going on. Like worldwide important stuff that it affects education, and that's where I'm going to talk about this episode. What's gone? What will be going on with school in fall? Good question. I hope and I think. Everybody hopes it's going to be regular school. Go to school. Sit in classes. Hang out with your friends. If YOU'RE A student to launch, go back to school. Go to the gym. Won't sports going plays going clubs all that. I gotTa Tell You I'm having conversations with principals and administrators and I'm watching the news. And it is maybe not a sure thing. And I think it's important right now to tell you this July tenth. Got Six depending on what school you go to five to eight weeks before school starts. I think he got to have a contingency plan. And I will wait for the school to do. So. I'm going to ask the question. What's your contingency plan? Are you? GonNa be ready. If you gotta to go virtual in September or August. or blended. There are some ideas of I've talk into administrator. About split shifting having group Eg on one week, while group does virtual, and then flip it the other way around, so they have half the kids in the school wants. Which makes sense? From A. Population, density social distancing SORTA standpoint, but is it really great for education? I Dunno I in my opinion, it's better than nothing, so I think live instruction is really important especially at the younger grades. You a second third fourth grader it, it's they're not gonNA. Learn much virtually. Let's not because virtual bad. Or the teachers aren't trying. It's just it's just a tough. Way To do it that way. So. Here's what I'm going to suggest. You gotta ask yourself this question..

"Testing into planned for the college admissions process painlessly. And now here's your host Dr Steven Green. Low. Dr, Steven Green here. The Success Dr. And I am recruiting this as part one. Of A three part series. Part One will be discussing time management. And the importance of it and how pertains studying? So. Number one question being. How important is time management to success? My answers is critical, critically important. For many reasons. Not The least of which is that everyone is very busy. Students are busy. Teachers are busy business. People are busy. Everyone is busy. So it's really about efficiency. It's about getting everything you need to get done. In a reasonable or maybe even minimal amount of time, which a gets all your work done. That's the practical piece research also less stressful. and. Let's be clear about something time management. Isn't really managing time. Only it's about having a plan. The plan could have many steps to it. At many pieces to it, and they conclude Organiz him just getting everything you need to get done in one place a checklist, the need to prioritize those tasks. You have to set appointments with yourself to get these tests on. Then you have to follow up then you have to execute. You have to actually do them. and He needs to plan. You need to plan in the short term. And long term, so you're gonNA have things. Get done by tomorrow. There's things that are going to be more ambitious projects that you may need to do over the course of a week or two weeks or beyond. So, time, management is a system. It has steps to it. Each step is important one-step flows to the next. It should include a short and long term timeframe, and it has to include executing and accountability. Aren't some people just better at it or smart or just or smarter, just capable of doing well. Well, of course, everyone is a different skill set..

Steve Green the success Dr and you know if you've listened to this podcast. I get very excited when I have a guest on. Especially, a highly qualified exciting. Guests? Welcome Regina Roza Celeste. And Learning Steve. How are You Doing Great Regina runs US joins us all the way from Sunny Miami. Yeah just outside of Miami. Yeah, the the power of the Internet. We're right next door to each other Regina is. What, what do you want to call you a internal what we will be? What would you say your title is? Often. Affectionately called the internal peace revolutionist. Religiously the mighty, ask the question how? Is this going to help. Parents help students with their academics. Excellent question the question of the day. I'm GonNa answer right away. A calm relaxed focused student is a more productive student. It enables you to study better. Nabil's you to show what you know better on a task. Especially, a high stakes test like the sat our final. And Regina's here to help you. Who some tools to get these skills, so let me just kind of bring this in here by telling you about her a little bit. She's an international speaker. Selling author and recovering perfectionist. Yes, calmly notice the Internal Peace Revolutionary She specializes in speaking coaching teaching skills of internal he's. Conscious minded men and women hire her to support them in getting unstuck out of their quicksand. That they feel business and personal lives are in. Each individuals responsible for our own happiness film fulfillment. Her Genus specializes teaching tools of lasting transformation and helping people create results that stick changing the world, and how the word experiences peace with over fifty plus tools and techniques. She quits her clients and students to empower themselves for lasting change. was teaching. The people tools of inner peace would impact and believe each person responsible for their unhappiness in the world by creating more inner peace. There's more abundance in the world, more wealth, available and an optic greater health and deeper connection. With each individual's life mission and purpose creating more sustainable and enterpise collectively. That's a mouthful. Wisconsin sum that up. How could you restate that in like one sentence? What would be your core? Core message to. The parents and the students the make degrade audience out there. Absolutely it's all about. South, responsibility? and My true belief. Is that when we each? Get radical about our own internal peace. In our own happiness, we can really. We are changing the world by doing that because we're not looking for outside sources to make happy like. For example With with parenting parenting is a tough job and I think it can carry. I mean I'm not a apparent per, se but I I of course I. Think we all have areas of our lives where we feel like we're parenting or being parented and. I think at the end of the day. It's very important to have respect for our parents, and also to have respect for our kids writing because there's always something to learn, and so if you're apparent listening I, think it's really helpful to know that there are resources available to support you. And to support your children, because if they're happy in school, a narrow getting good grades, it's a reflection of their. Mind my experience is that when kids are? Excelling in school. It's because they have very abundant lives, and they're feeling supported in life. So. I mean my my intuitive knowing. Right or belief that a kid doesn't matter if they're little or if they're college age, nobody really wants to fail in school. It's not like anybody raises their hand and says hey. I WANNA be failure when I when I grow up right so. If there's a learning disability or some challenge. It's a challenge because they don't know how else to do it or. They're not motivated to do it. Right we don't want to say their lease absolutely not more. You know what I find. Let let's. The educational system is what it is. It focused on academics right. Learning how to read learning how to do math? Learning how to maybe a foreign language history it? It's subject and information based. one of the complaints I get. A lot is well sure they teach stuff, but they don't teach kids how to manage their time. They don't teach children how to study so my kid. You know the smart quote. Unquote smart kids kind of figured out on their own. And the rest are just left to kind of do it, but another thing they don't teach at all, and maybe it is not appropriate place to do it in a school. Is Self Esteem. And some schools are addressing this now, but it's very recent. Personal Accountability. look nobody goes through life without problems, right? So I think I I'm pregnant to get the wrong, but it isn't the problem. It's how you deal with it or. Something like that her. Reactor. Helped me if I'm saying that even close. What happens to us if? While you're, this is why you are here, Regina. To set the record straight, so what I really want people to get out of today's. Conversation Are some tools or some ways of thinking where you know a chocolate like a thirteen year old twelve year old, you know they got a lot going through their mind the lot through an inner lives especially in the last couple of months. It, where would you say? Where would you say this would start? What would be the first step? That apparent could take, or or maybe an older child could take on their own to kind of get them on this path. Of more maybe I'm going to call for Burger term inner control. Yeah, I mean. I think it's very appropriate when you said. You're not sure if it's an appropriate place to start I think it's critical right like. Personally when kids that I taught kids, I taught Montessori kids. All the way up to middle and high school, so I didn't teach them in regular everyday class right but I as yoga teacher go into Nineteen Yoga practices and tools and. What I find is that children and older kids? They're.

"Welcome to make the grade with the success Dr Steven. Green were, you'll discover actionable strategies to help your student to reach their academic goals to excel at standardized testing into planned for the college admissions process painlessly. And now here's your host Dr Steven Green. Steve Green the success Dr. Talking about the why why do we do? What we do, this is the make degrade podcast. Hope everybody's doing well out there this. I'm trying to get motivated today trying to get you motivated. You know it's a transitional time of year. I am recording this Middle June twenty twenty. Kind of sort of in the middle end of this whole Cova thing. But more importantly. My world school just ended. School ended last week. So normally this time you're gone from being super busy, really busy fourteen fifteen sixteen hours a day busy to almost being vacation. This year though different. Whole, last three, and a half months was different. I don't have to tell you this if you were a parent or a student. You probably already know this. So every year this time of year I reset. And I'm thinking about okay. What went well? What do I feel? Was Successful. And what needs to be improved Abdoun this twenty four years I'll be twenty five years in September. Believe it twenty fifth year. Make the great who would've thought and one of the questions. I ask myself is in addition to what won't well. What did not go well just why? Why Am I doing what I'm doing. Why am I asking students to do what they do? I'm asking parents to support the situation like they do. Why the existential question and I guess. Let's start with that. I think to some degree. It's about success. And success as all over my brandt. The May degrade success community. I use the word success multiple times in our, sometimes because we have to have goals, success is not a fine. I guess you can have financial success. But how much money is that? Two million dollars enough ten, million, hundred million to billion. Can have physical goals. Emotional goals. Successes is a vague thing, but I. think everyone would agree. Success is the result of making a goal and working towards that goal. Okay, so in my circumstance, because ninety nine percent of the time I am working with students and families or entrepreneurs in the business side of our business, who are trying to accomplish something, and maybe it's fake, and even I own in. In my own life there are things I. Know I want to accomplish and I can't exactly sometimes make him super smart goals, specific measurable Timing Accountability that whole thing, but the biggest parameter for students is either best grades. They can get highest GPA they can get or if the test prep scenario highest sat scores AC to sourcing, get or the getting into the. College. They want to go to get into the dream school their first choice school. So that's usually the why that is the motivator carrot, call what you want that. They can use to keep themselves gone. Day to day over and over consistent, and if you're a fan of this podcast, you know these words I use them a lot consistent commitment day in day out, so I'm to turn it around the other way, so ask what your? Why if you're a student why what drives drive to work hard? Why are you working hard to reach your goals working hard to have success? Parent y you pushing your children. I think it's the assumption. Is All parents want their kids to be successful? There's that concept again which I think, we all understand. It's hard to really pinpoint so again. This time of year I kind of circle back what went well? What went well I? Think for the most part and I got to give a lot of credit to my students and their families. We handled this covert shot in pretty well wasn't always easy. Easy there wasn't a huge amount of direction from schools where teachers sometimes kids were basically teaching themselves and congratulations to those you had to do that and that include learning by videos that were made on the Internet and they're fine nothing wrong with them, actually usually good information, but you still had to basically put it all together on your own so congratulations to you for sticking with it doing the best you could, and making the best were challenging situation. Also. I had plenty of students this year I had eight students before the whole thing hit the fan break. Fourteen hundred sat's I had three of them eight hundred sections. Many of them get seven hundred sections. This is not easy to do. This is the result. Of long-term consistent commitment and hardwork and consistent commitment to the process. Congratulations to you. And, if you're listening to know who you are. Fifteen eighty. Fifteen, fifty, fifteen, forty to fifteen, fifteen ten. Fourteen fifty forty F. forget all of them so I, not writing them down. This is a little bit more spontaneous. Point is eighteen kids breaking those numbers. It's tremendous way above anything, national turns of a standard deviations and all that stuff. And it isn't to say. The the people were torn got a twelve hundred failed. If that was their best. That's the best they could do and their highest score. Under the circumstances they had then I. Think we'll take it. Because we can translate that. Into success with the schools. And that's what we're GONNA. Keep doing moving forward. Go as well. You know I wish I could have been able to reach more people. That's always one of my goals. I have spent a lot of time and energy and Resources this past year developing make great success community. To twenty four seven resource for families and for students why by doing this? Because I, have a mission and I'd like my. To be to help this many people's I could. Can't help.

Spend a lot of time putting content, and they're answering questions. They're doing live events in there doing homework. Help in they're. Doing Test Prep, help in there. Along with all my individual people, so I'd like to continue to improve that. It's a work in progress and probably always will be getting there. And I think it's going in the right direction I thank everybody who supported it and as soon to become members. And I wish everybody listening consider doing. Their thing I think could improve. Is Planning ahead I wish I could still get students to think longer throw. Longer time horizon. Everybody is so focused and the not incorrectly on what's due tomorrow? Stu Tomorrow. Ties I. Wish I could get people look a little further out, but we take we can do we try. We work who we to for the best and we do what we can and that's. That's really it, so I'm GONNA. Come back to the why. Why do I keep doing what I'm doing is because I care about people I want them to be successful on their terms. That could be high grades. That could be high sat scores beginning to college.

"Is to give you an action. You could help through community so an online community. Excellent way to make it happen my particular community almost every day. I M putting some substantive value in their things that can help you. They may be study skills related. They may be time management related than maybe specifically to matheny soaking the science. But the point is it's a place to get help place to get support. That's my whole mission here.

Who are your friends are going to help you know them before you have an issue? What study groups are going to help you set up when he before you need help so when you do need help it's already in place or maybe because you have a set up? Little tiny problems never become bigger medium problems. Can you work with your teacher? Would office hours? They have what extra support to the give? Same with other educators. What Tudor or tutors reveal with? It you know you can work with that can help you. And how much time do you have to give them? I can tell you my tutoring business and it happens almost every week. Somebody calls me. Hey you know I hear you tutor. This and my kid needs help. They gotTa Test Great. Great great great wins the test. Oh It's tomorrow at eight and morning.

"It. You're it's not going to get the same level of of genuine communication so you know just put add that to the list of one hundred Million things busy parents have to do but this is part of parenting education is is a huge component of everybody. Grown one up unless you home school. They're going to go to school. And you Jones. Will you have to deal with it. So you know probably is the biggest time commitment in kids have until they're eighteen or so probably beyond that So it's a matter of making a priority as a parent. Yeah Yeah I love that cool so I ask every guests on the show if they have any Ninja tips for our listeners. Well I will say one thing I said before which is pro activity is really important at least in education. The little things add up to larger things so just planning seeds getting processes in place creating communication Systems little stuff over time really compounds. I think you reap benefits later. I think it's also important written to just consider where you get information from and frankly you can consider me that. Put me on that same list. The place to learn about what to do in in school is not standing in the supermarket. Line talking to somebody now or somebody down the street. Who's you know Mike? You did this. But it's unbelievable. Well maybe not Where people take advice from sometimes That isn't really helping them. Yeah I I I would caution people about that and then the last one I can think of now is just be beware that things are going to change. Yeah no it just because it worked for well two things. Things are GONNA change around you in the academic universe and you can have two kids completely different skill sets. Yeah don't assume just 'cause they both were born from the same parents or whatever that both your kids are the same they may have different personalities. Probably do they probably different. Academic interests have different academic abilities So sometimes you gotTa have almost those two sets of rules or guidelines for every or more rarely kid an. I think that's more common. So that's kind of addition to the showers. Fifth Child just awareness thing asked me sense to the fact they're gonNA have different sprint. Goals are GonNa have different ways to get things done. Things like that so not sure if qualifies Ninja Tips but see education is not the sexiest thing to talk about but no this is gone now. Yeah I can't really tell you you know the best way to market your book Walker anything but but you know in terms of just baseline and stuff that most people as once your payroll is apparent right so this is a lifelong thirty. Whatever fifty year education really yeah? I'm like I said I'm not a parent coach. I'll tell anybody anybody parent on any level but from the academic apiece. It's something you have to invest in your work with you gotta stay with and it's worth it by four learn about it in educate yourself about about the process as a parent. She can help your kids. Yeah Yeah I love that Stephen. How do we get in touch with you? What is the best way for us to reach you? Well I would probably say email.

I do the makes a great podcast. Imagine it's called that incredible incredible creativity. Yeah Iva podcast a purpose. The podcast is very simple. They're short eight to ten minutes. The whole goal is actionable things. I would like people to listen to the podcast and when they get done listening to it or even halfway through it they can hit pause and actually go do something thing that's going to help them to further and to maximize their education. That's what it's all about. Sometimes we'll talk about case studies sometimes interview people but generally took out. Hey here's a tip for today. Here's an action. Step that you can do on podcast. An interesting journey. I mean out to tell you that because you podcasting But sometimes it's hard to think of things to talk about s because consistency is really important in the podcast. Right so time sitting there go and she. You won't talk about all you gotta do. I never sure it is. I just think about what's happened last. Couple of days of what has students brought me what if parents brought me. I can always always think is something that is going to apply. At least I believe to a larger audience agree though yeah so that's really what I've been tapping into his. I was working with a parent I was working in the family here. was there challenge.

"Kind of people on a parallel level to me who are psychologists who are college counselors who are aligned professionals who are doing working being in the same space but he may be different aspects of it And it becomes a very micro thing. I know a psychologist who only works with five eight-year-olds band of the population but in the needs there. The caseloads there. These are all people I'd network with for years. There's and I know their strengths. I know what they can do and I know what they can bring to the table so they'll be a lot of information guest blogging or every. Call them at our guest experts right But I I think that you're concern in your particular case you could multiply by a hundred different things like I get people saying to be well a parallel thing my kids taking honors Algebra. Why are they acknowledgeable? Because because it's GonNa look better on the college application but they're struggling so is it better for them to get B. or a C. in honors Algebra versus in a in regular your track. Good question and the answer is depends depends on a lot of things not just the isolated idea of the of the individual classes. Yeah another thing. I'll tell you is prefaced by saying I have to spend a lot of time making sure I'm in the right place for this. Is things change all the time. What was good advice a year ago or three years ago or five years ago may not be good advice today today? The world changes around us. It's the same thing with marketing. It's the same thing with advertising. I mean just when you think you figured it all out. They changed the rules right. Yeah like we were talking before about facebook ads right so the same thing happens and everything happens in education. You you something. If you have multiple children who are enough age differential yet. By the time the younger one gets older one was at that point it may be. It may be not radically different but you may have a different playing field. Yeah it wanting said always reminds me joking like you the photo album thing where like the oldest four thousand pictures kit got the one picture in bath or something. It's kind of a reverse ERSAN. Education is that people figure it out as their kids make their way through with that that does happen. A lot is is what's correct it quote unquote at point. A. May not be the best advice two years later five years later. Yeah and I I love what you say I I love you say that about that too because I think you know and we've talked about this it's like when is the right time to get someone like you involved right and you you always say to me. Ideally it's when they're younger before there's stuff going on right instead of that crisis mode right and I think that's really the beauty beauty of this membership community because you were making this accessible from a financial perspective to so many that they can start to get get involved in this setting themselves up for success when they're in sixth grade seventh grade eighth grade rather than waiting to that moment. Where everything's falling apart? Yeah listen I being proactive is four million. Five Hundred Twenty eight thousand times better and being reactive yeah in this You know in fairness sometimes people just don't know you know. How do you know what seventh grade? Your kid might struggle struggle with something in tenth grade and sometimes people parents. I'm just going to say. There is denial level sometimes. Hey Mike is fine. There's struggling this year. It's just a phase. Yeah you get that and sometimes. That's legit sometimes. It's social you know. Sometimes kids are shy or yeah. You know that you're still in school. I mean there's there's other dynamics going on at school beyond just teacher student yet. Oh this this is a key can be a complicated thing. But but yes that is one of the missions. This community is to give people kind of a taste or knowing. Hey wait a minute is this right is this doesn't feel right to me. Let me just make sure. Let me get advice from the right people and maybe everything's fine and just I just didn't know enough to make a judgment yet. Yeah but you know I look It's recording us in January in high schools. It's midterm season. Yeah I get people calling me the night before midterm. Hey My kids got the midterm. Can you prep them sure. When is it Komo Tate o'clock tomorrow morning? Can Anybody Al Care you can. Nobody can teach three months of math in our for. Yeah it's not. It's just not realistic so You know some of this is planning ahead yeah solve. It is his information access to it. Sober to trust you know there. There's personal vulnerabilities here. At one extension is the community is primarily for parents because they are usually and frankly usually mother's 'cause they're usually wants is it managed the educational experience but they're going to the enormity are things in there for students as well because I don't need every parent on earth to be a CO teacher. I'm necessarily need a circumstance where I have to teach the parents and the parents teach the children the ATL. There's GonNa be the things in here. Some prerecorded alive that are specifically for students so light for example. I'm planning to do a alive event for juniors in high school or I'm sorry tenth graders who are going to be juniors in high school the phone fall and say look. Here's things coming up on an important stretch of time in your high school cool academic career. Here's thinking thinking about over the summer or spring into the summer to really position yourself as strongly as possible. Yeah the and I think hearing it firsthand is going to be better than the parents trying to communicate it because you have little kids but trust me you'll reach a point in your life Jamie where you can say whatever you want to your child. They're not gonNA listen to you and somebody else randomly almost the exact same thing and they will listen. We're we're even younger. It's worth so but it's unbelievable. I will work with a kid and my officer online and the panel pop in and the parents. You know you're going to do your homework now or whatever. Yeah Mom ooh like attitude and stuff and I'll say the same thing and they do it so is also great or I of any kind of you know spend a Howard. Just it's a weird thing when your parents you got all kinds of levels that you got to communicate and deal with children with and sometimes you got to pick your battles that. I'm not just to be clear. I'm not representing the student. As the the solution to every issue every parent has raising children. That's a little more than I but it off but from the academic standpoint at but that's a big tension creator you know when when parents take school seriously for their children and the children are performing up to the expectations of parents. That's a huge tension creator. Yeah and a disarmed creator in households and I preliterate Twenty thousand stories of fights that have happened in homes because the parents are chasing after kids to do homework. And they don't WanNa do it and you know blame video you can blamed over you want. Sometimes kids are just lazy. Wave other priorities and A huge cause of friction in households is just academics in general and of course some kids are great. You know not this one hundred percent but it leased caseload. I have it. It's almost always in the discussion. Yeah and I love I I love. I love the fact that this is meant for parents to help them support their children better. Because I think we as parents were like going into this blind lines right. We don't have any experience of what that's like other than our own high school experience which may or may not have been positive right where you you know what the kids call it the manual right. That's you know. Somebody said that many people say that you know and even wonder little. You don't now I I change in diapers right. Am I feeding them. Right is mill too hot. I don't know and I know I parent at my kids from literally birth till four or five and I. I'm not saying I was fathered a year parented by any means but you know. Sometimes you don't know if you're doing the right thing or not you do what you think is best You know so this is where this is what it is. This is my goal. This is something I you know. I'm very feel very strongly about uh-huh of dedicated a ton of time and energy. Not just the community but to just this whole you every day. All Day But I think ultimately I would one of my goals is not just for this to be me being the epicenter of this community. I'm hoping as it grows. And as it evolves they'll be people who just become the best word. Youth leader is not the best but a little higher profile. Be People that will be sort of sharing information and then commenting about it and it's not unique. There's other groups that have this kind of structure. Sure so that's one of my hopes. Yeah I love that. I think it's so cool and love for you to for our listeners. Really speak to. What are some of those symptoms that you know? Kids will say when they need help because teenagers aren't like hey mom. Hey Dad like I suck APP. I need help. What are some of the things that you know? Parents can pick up on to identify. Hey I I should get my kids in help in this area. Well the most obvious one would be some sort of quote unquote bad grades right and report card tests it now a days just like to line anywhere in the world. It is super easy for parents to get access to grades. You know almost every school I know of has some kind on online Back Office or parenting log in secret so that kind of the the mask is off their so to speak but so number one would be poor performance whether grades is the only metric that another one. That's not as obvious is when kids just avoid doing the work. It's human nature. If you're not comfortable rule something or you're not good at it you avoid doing right. I'll use mathis example. Maybe somebody is four topics if do for homework and they're always doing math last and then seems times as long as it should but while they doing math less because the good French whatever. They're good at history. They're good at or comfortable with English. They're comfortable with biology. And I'm just these random. Yeah Yeah but they don't like Algebra so they just put it off till the end Because they don't WanNa do it. It's not comfortable just like anybody. Avoid painful things. Yeah that's that's a subtle thing Sometimes the third one would be an inability For the kid to sort of connect past to present to future and that that's a little harder for parents to gauge but this is where communication is ruling important but from strictly and observational standpoint. I think those Sir someone's I see all the time another one would be if this doesn't work in every case where you can. Usually the parents know friends of their children right there in the same school offering a saint classes. They have similar teachers sometimes. Sometimes you'll see things like that you'll notice what other kids are doing. And I'm not saying you should be comparing your child to nurture child. Yes but you get information that way as well for example I found out my kids going to the prom through his friends. I'm is a couple years ago ago but yeah yeah friends over one night. They're watching something playing doing something he's going to the prom with so-and-so oh no yeah no. I didn't know that funny you should mention it. Does he needed talks or so weeks away so you now. It's funny. What what you'll learn just kind of being present and and Not not to tell anybody how to parent but it is important to be involved and it is important to communicate it. It doesn't work well as a parent if you're absent for whatever reason some really legit and and then two years later all of a sudden you get really involved in your kids education. That doesn't usually work very well and kids don't like that And and parents will say well but the parent this is my right because on the PAREN- in it it's important. You know if I can give a little advice is to start a lot of these things. Young start communicating with your kids young and just get them used to that. He was just sitting around dinner or just. You know what's going on in school. What did you learn today? It's your favorite subject a little stuff. You'll need to have a whole explanation of everything on because if you wait until their tenth or eleventh grade and you've you've never talked about it ever and all of a sudden you're trying to speak sit down about why you struggling in.

"Thank you thank you thank you Jamie. I am very happy to be here. Seemed Uber excited to have you here so tell our listeners. A little bit about yourself. Well I am a fulltime educator I started started and run education tutoring company on based in Pennsylvania but I unfortunately able to work with people literally all over for the world my main passions were basically helping people Helping them reach their goals in some cases set goals try to maximize their education. Another kind of aspect of my life. I guess is that I'm an author. I wrote a book and the book. Is it kind of the cornerstone of how I try to give people tools to help themselves. So you've sold right a couple correct. Yeah a lot of copies which really But I think the reason I sold them is not necessarily. Because it's such a fabulous book. Although I think it is I it's really more because the need is so broad and the need for the material in the book is so universal because so many people struggle Duggal with education and schools are good at teaching topical things math and science and English but most schools don't really worry about the tools studying how to outline how to make a flowcharts and time management information management. So that's the sort of stuff. The book addresses the name of it so we can link it in the shouts. The book is called maximum education and It is actually has its own website Maxim Education Dot Net and. Yeah so that that is the book but the book was born from what I do. I didn't in one day. Just write a book. It was sort of evolved from working with hundreds and hundreds hundreds of people and noticing common challenges. I've had and I started to create things in and Things like tasks for them to do to help them improve these deficiencies in their skill. Set like note taking under outlining or or there's a bunch of them but those are pretty easy examples and I kept doing the same things over and over and then literally one day apparent came to me and said you know you should should write a book. I'm like Oh good idea. And we thought about it. I'm sorta actually the original the original manuscript. The book is is Just a stack of papers that I had printed out. There is in word processors something which kind of dates this process a little bit and I took it over to the copy center Ten copies on a figured on my next ten students. I'll I'll give this out to instead of me. Having every single time somebody. Nobody came over. Who needed the support? Printing it out from the printer and it went through I ten Seriously like two days and then I went back and in fast forward it became a real book with cover art on Amazon and it was actually a number one bestseller which it's almost embarrassed to say good way but Yeah so it. It's opened a lot of doors. It's it's enabled me to make a lot of connections. I may not innate otherwise but really most importantly because this is what I always come back to. I think it's really helped a lot of people. Yeah let's give people tools rules and techniques that they didn't have before that important and they don't just end in school about academics but people go on and get jobs jobs and have careers and allowed. These things are very very useful in those settings as well and I've actually done work in the entrepreneurial in the business in space but I don't focus on that yeah and so I'd love for you to talk about because you kind of have a cool story which is also very kind of similar to my business in how your business originally started very much locally and now it is really a ball. I love you to kind of speak to that process because I think for many of our listeners. They probably have a similar story or experience or they're trying to go from being a local to online so I love free to speak tonight because I think that's a cool thing. Well I just to date this. I went to college in the really really early eighties and got my teaching certificate and became a teacher and I was teaching the classrooms high school teacher. Middle School teacher eventually a college professor up until the Middle Nineties and then it would mess up your whole life. Is You have kids right not really not really it just. It was sort of a joke anyway so I had this watershed moment. I like a lot of parents where it was almost cheaper for me you to stay home then pay for childcare and which is really kind of a shame that's probably a topic for a whole separate podcast but So I was able to take a year off from teaching That time university position. They basically gave me a sabbatical year. So I could stay home. It's basically a stay at home home parent and I got like a quarter of my salary or something like that. So that wasn't quite enough. It was still save money audience childcare but the differential is getting me anyway So that's when I started what has now become my business. The tutoring education company but to your point At the time a hundred percent of my business was face to face and local you know. I'm in tutoring. People are not going to drive seven hours to see a tutor gabby. My radius was six to ten miles and I'm gonNA populated area in a big city area so there was competition and certainly other choices. People people had But for the first ten twelve years of my business I would say one hundred percent of my work was face to face either in my office in a school. Maybe somebody's house maybe at a library etcetera well the big shifts was around two thousand twelve thirteen plus or minus at least for me was starting to take the business online. The technology evolved to the point where it was decent webcams and yeah an audio online started actually decent when freeze off all the time anymore were would be really expensive to do and I slowly. We started transitioning into that. And I've always been kind of technology. conjure gadgets and stuff like that. So I kind of I just gravitated toward it naturally but but the transition was taking service. That's typically very hands on Teaching people math. Your Pencil you're working with them to doing it using the what's now really really accessible technology online. I'm at the point now. Where on any given day or any given week half to two thirds of my client caseload undoing online remotely and I really honestly don't think there's any drop off in terms of service quality or results There's there's limitations in some ways. They balanced some ways. It's easier some ways it's harder but The results I think are there and I all kinds of documentation to substantiate that. But but what is done from a business standpoint is taking my footprint which was maybe a five mile radius around my office to literally global and Yeah well obviously it makes it much bigger market or market potential It also grows faster because because I'm in a business like many people where I live I for the most part by referrals. My Best Best Referrals from happy. The clients so the more than that exist the more you know the threshold in critical mass of people referring into the system Mar But it's a big shift. I could see very easily a situation where I'm one hundred percent remote or one hundred percent virtual. That's crazy and one of the things that you're working on your your big initiatives for twenty twenty is unfortunate enough to be privy to this information because we work together RPIME son. I've insider information that you're a membership site Think some ways that's kind of the end result of all the stuff we just talked about. Yeah I'd love for you to kind of talk to our listeners about that because I know for many of our listeners. They have student they might have a a child. That's in middle school or high school What what is your plan for that? I love free to speak to that because I think that's something that's really really cool all that you're doing well. The mission statement of the community is very mission. State my business which is to help people to work. Towards whatever goals they have academically the functionality of it is to help to provide them with those tools and also provide them with support of it. It's a place get questions answered. It's a place to post ideas. A I tried this in and get feedback on things like that. It's the place to for me to provide information in more of a mass setting which is much more efficient than to everything to one were through. Just a strictly Outbound mechanism like a podcast. So I think from parents viewpoint this is a number one. It's a location where they can go. ver-very easily facebook based group and get information nation from an expert at. I'M GONNA call myself an expert number two it's a place to Hobnob with like minded people. Yep everybody knows people have kids in school especially if you have kids in school but a Lotta people are not the most forthcoming when their kids have challenges now people. It's not comfortable you know. See somebody soccer game or the supermarket today. Hey you know my kid just got an math are you doing. It just doesn't happen that much so I I look at. This is kind of a safe haven for people that are comfortable to have these kinds of discussions There's GonNa be a me live. They'll be live events within the community and I think best of all Paul it. I'm trying to make it so it's very very affordable. It's awful so yeah I like people to say. Hey this is something I can do. It can knock into it. It's worth it to me and I think one thing you touched upon something that is at least deep near and dear to my heart. Because I know I'm very early on in my son's one of my sons educational journeys and we had to make the hard decision of whether or not for him the second year of kindergarten. He's got a late June birthday kind of struggling first year round and no one had that conversation with me about. Hey Hey maybe you shouldn't put him in school this year because his birthday is late and then vice versa. Hey what is the right thing to do. Turns out like when I actually started having those conversations there were so many other people who had a similar experience so I think part of what's really cool about what you you do in general and what you're doing doing with this community in particular as you work with so many students throughout the years you can help us. Parents understand what to expect when it comes to these things and help us make better decisions around the Steph. Especially when when you first kid's going through that right so like if I have to three five kids. It's really easy for the fourth of the fifth one because I understand what's expects but but that first one you just don't know and so I love for you to speak to that will well your expert number one is. I've been around long enough and you know without giving away too much but I've been I've been doing this almost thirty two years in some capacity so there isn't a whole lot of having seen so in terms of experiences people have had we'll have and you write the. The isolation is uncomfortable for people right. Am I the only one who has this issue. The answer has to be no. But how do I connect with like minded people. It's Allawi's you're now with social media but can you trust everybody. I mean there's a lot of weird variables there Number One. I think I look at this community place for people get legitimate professional advice and not just from me. I have in addition to the members of the community. One of my initiative here.

"steven" Discussed on Make the Grade with Dr. Steven Greene
"And now here's your host welcoming you to another exciting episode of the make degrade podcast appreciate your subscribing appreciate your support appreciate your feedback as always today i'm really excited no is get excited when we have a guest on because i love having different perspectives and i love having the expert sort input from from people in the field so we're very lucky today three would have a conversation with dr steven motto and i'm sure all of you have heard of him he's he's very famous but he is an educator in the state of georgia for thirty two years and he has served in public school families as a his three teacher in fact he was teacher of the year he's been assistant principal highschool principal two thousand nine he was georgia principal of the year and a finalist for the a. s. s. p. honestly i'm not even sure what that is but we will find out and the point is he's he's a quality educator lifelong educator very dedicated to his field and i'm very happy to have him in the fold today and just as a full disclosure i was honored to be guest on his podcast so it really was a great conversation so i wanted to bring him in and get a different perspective so dr and welcome thanks for having me here i'm excited to be here and i appreciate you having me on it was great heavy on my show and i appreciate you invite me back well i think i think there's a lot of really interesting things you can share and i wanted to kind of get right to it so let let's let's let's start with this right you've been kind of through the whole scheme teacher principal administrator parent right now in the administrative role but what i would like to do is talk about the different perspectives hal is the perspective of education different as administrator that might have been as a teacher and as it is apparent the bulk of the people listening here probably parents who have a big involvement in their kids education for which they should be graduated but but let let's let's just jump off from there so let's talk about to administrators maybe it was that an adjustment coming out of the classroom where you obviously had a lot of success so let let's listen art there all right well it definitely was an adjustment i became an assistant principal in the same school where i had been a teacher and everything works fine l. have to deal with something that you didn't see coming in my case it was having to deal with i'm one of the staff members kept parking in spark parking spot they shouldn't be parking so so i had to and it was he was they he was my best friend in the school and principal said i need to take care of this and so i went to him and it never it he didn't want to in the beginning he just august kind of brushed me off is yeah you're right frank galway and and i had to eventually say no no no you don't understand you move the car or towed after that you walked to the lunchroom table and they all got quiet i had gone now he's a management now you know exactly i had gone to the is evil side so and so there is that shift just as a note i i think that it's unfortunate when we get at odds between the teaching the staff the administration and and the parents because we you know we should be there all for the same reason and that is to help kids the to cheap whatever their dreams are and and you know you were talking about his apparent one of the things that i think happens yeah it's i as an administrator i think one of the things that's different from the teacher role is that you have more of a community role and you feel that that desire if you're involved in different service communities or you're out there working prince on different committees and stuff like this you feel a little bit more you should feel a little bit more of those concerns that the parents are having trying to figure out how to address them so that's one of the things happens do you find your interaction with parents is a lot different as administrator it had been as a teacher yes and no and i say that laughingly because i'm remembering the first time that i i was an assistant principal and my main job was disciplined and the principal was trying to make sure that his assistant principals during a parent night got out about and we're shaking hands and talking with parents and i said are you sure you want me out about i said there's some of them who probably don't really wanna talk with me and he said yes yes you gotta get out there and you need to chit chat and so forth and which is an awesome thing that he was doing and so the very first and i went up to and sit high too i didn't recognize him and he said he said oh and what are you doing i said why i'm in charge of ninth grade disciplined and he went i don't think i wanna know you he laughingly walks away you know well that went well i guess it can only go up from there yes yes and it did and from the it did go well and i learned that you know parents are looking for the best for their child and and that's what we should be about trying to provide and and i think that's but one of the interesting interactions that's happened is that when you do discipline or when you get involved in different organizations it's like sometimes if you know him through a service group or something like that it's a lot different because you have more of a a connection that way and they might come to really recognize your trust your but more so and so getting back to something you said about the difference between administrators and teachers one of the cool things that teachers have is that advantage if they're focused on on helping the child whatever it is they're working on they're helping them figure out how to do better at it there helping him overcome some problem or they're helping them with their applications for college whatever it is that they're doing they have the ability to really connect on a personal level which is one of the most powerful f- aspects of of a teacher that's so different from the other any other level in a school setting how important do you feel it is for parents well this really two part question involvement child's education which i i think it's kind of almost a rhetorical question but be especially at the upper levels the involved in the schools because what i see all the time and this happened to me personally with my children were elementary school i was evolved PTO was in the classrooms the classroom pairing forget what they call it exactly i was helping with the schools store we did birthday parties and then you get into middle school and that really tapers down because the kids are older and frankly you didn't feel that the teachers needed to around this much and by high school it's almost non-existent jacked i'm not even sure they want parents coming in and out of high school very much but wh what do you think about that where do you you know what what's the what's the appropriate role you think well i think the appropriate role first of all is it's unfortunate that a lotta times high schools dussen that wrong message because we really want your around we want you to be involved want you to be there and once you feel like that it's you should be able to come into the school and you know get involved because that's that's one of the biggest things you try and figure out how can get somewhere in middle school what starts happening is in part of its that don't get me wrong because schools can send the wrong message the artist yes starts happening from the child also they start worrying that the child's looking at him going out mom dad don't come up to the school no i really don't wanna run into you by accident up there especially if you're smiling and having a good old time with the principal that's not a good thing and you know getting back on track a lot of times a school since the wrong message and so we can do a better job of that and that's why you know we want parents alden committees we want parents to want to get involved in the the different activities on campus we want them to want to know more about what we're trying to do to help children and they the best thing is is to get them to to say hey i'm i'm steve and i'm the parrot of so and so and i'd like to you know what can i do to help and i think that's the the best thing the and then from there the biggest thing from there is just to understand that we're doing we're doing trying to do our best and so sometimes we make mistakes and so just help us by understanding where we might have stepped in the wrong direction so is there is there an appropriate level that a parent should be involved let's let's let's address this from academics right because all right having been a teacher at obviously you want children advocate for themselves especially at at the high school level right but you know what always happens is maybe comes home with grade that parents aren't happy with and then they'll nowadays email the teacher you know what's going on with us which sometimes goes well sometimes creates a little more of a contentious situation but what's your opinion on a little bit of a fine line academically obviously parents involved in the schools sort of socially and just as a community support piece i think we all agree about that academically wha what can the parents do to partner only use that word with teachers to advocate for their children or or maybe vice versa how could the parents helped the teachers to maximize what's going on outside of the school because we only get him six hours a day right six seven hours a day right off the desk to go on at home home life is variable you know in terms of what the kids get sometimes so what would your best pitched parents be there the my message to parents would be i think about it from this aspect we're trying to do our best it's important that you talk with me on a on an adult to adult level where we can say hey steve can you talk with miller i noticed that this is going on with my son's grade or we'd like to talk a little bit about what he can do to you know get better at it or something like this but have that type of open communication now i want to shift from parents the second i'll come back to it because i want to talk about the educator i i as a note here real quick because one of the things we can do for ourselves is to is to provide different ways to be in touch with the with the parent and to stay in touch and to keep them apprised of what's going on the classroom and many different ways of doing that and unfortunate a lot of times what we do is we wait until an open house or something like this or we or we do something like.
