It took me a few years of teaching in the classroom to discover EXACTLY how to save our educational system. One day, I had an epiphany; an Ah-HA moment that changed my life.

Stop making it all about the kids.

As a parent, the best thing I can do for my children is to take care of myself and bring the best version of myself to them on a daily basis. Unconditional love and acceptance flow from a person who knows how to love themselves first.

That’s not what we bring to our classroom daily.

The classroom is filled instead with fearful adults who are afraid of their own students.

Nothing can grow properly planted in fear.

It’s time to flip education from the inside out.

It’s time for a seismic shift in our beliefs as to what is acceptable and what is possible.

Its time for our focus to shift toward the adults in the room; teachers.

Teachers are the most important person in the classroom; not the students.

It’s time to stop treating teachers as teachers. It’s time to acknowledge who they really are and what they really do.

Teachers are brain builders; they build the brains of every human being in our society. They, literally, make connections within
the minds of children, that shape and form future humans.

Teachers are neural architects; they help shape the minds that will inhabit our society.

Teachers have an ENORMOUS responsibility and charge. When successful they brain build with love in their hearts; because they have love within themselves. A successful teacher takes care of themselves and brings to the classroom the BEST version of themselves everyday.

Successful teachers are Queen Bees

Successful teachers MODEL self care, unconditional love, and acceptance.

Successful teachers are successful adults; they know they are enough

We need Queen Bees

That is my mission.
