Happy Inspirational Monday to you! The Erica Q. Cooper Show will discuss Being A Single Parent. Our guest today is Shirelle Brown. Shirelle Brown is a part-time freelance writer and a full-time mother, and is currently employed as a full-time government employee, who was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. She spends most of her down time reading and people watching, which is what led her to pursue her dreams of becoming a psychologist in which so far she has earned a BS in Psychology from the University of Phoenix. However, since discovering so many other passions, such as Philanthropy, she plans to start a non-profit organization that caters to hard working single mothers like herself who are striving for greatness but just needs a little help when times get hard, or nudge of encouragement in order to keep moving forward, or education on how to go against all odds and properly raise a child in today’s society. Shirelle has always had an embedded passion for writing ever since the 5th grade where she won an oratory contest and has a plethora of poems and short stories that she’s written over the years. Thanks to her daughter’s passion of writing, who also went on to win an oratory contest at her school, Shirelle decided to resurrect those old passions by finishing her book and publishing it to make another deferred dream a new reality and just so her children will witness first hand that anything is possible when you believe and it is never too late to achieve your dreams. This eBook, The Single Mother (Stress Less and Thrive) is scheduled to be bound and printed by the Fall of 2014 in which a book signing event will be announced. Be sure to befriend Shirelle on Facebook, LinkedIn or follow her on Twitter to stay updated on her latest book releases and events. Also stay tuned for the release of her new eBook that will be complete by Winter 2014.

Join me on Sunday, May 13, 2013 from 8:00 pm to 8:30 pm for my discussion about the validity of Year Round School Calendars and Traditional School Calendars and the impact if any on student achievement. School districts around the country have begun to re-examine the benefits and challenges of extending school days and the school year. In Washington DC, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and schools chancellor Kaya Henderson are considering expanding the school day and school year as an attempt to improve overall test scores and increase graduation rates. Currently the school week for students attending the District of Columbia Public Schools consist of 30 hours, which according to Mayor Gray is simply no longer enough time. Many champions of the extended school day and year believe adding more time will increase the ability of American students to compete with their global peers. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a chief proponent of the longer school year, says American students have fallen behind the world academically.
However, there are those who do not support an extended school day or school and suggest there is little to no evidence that support an improvement in academic performance. “Opponents of extended school point out that states such as Minnesota and Massachusetts steadily shine on standardized achievement tests while preserving their summer break with a post-Labor Day school start” (Julie Carr Smyth (2013). Join me on Sunday, May 12, 2013 on Parent Talk Live, home of important educational discussions germane to parents and their communities. My guest will be Tina Bruno.
Tina Bruno is the executive director of the national advocacy organization, The Coalition for a Traditional School Calendar. Under her direction the cry of parents for a longer summer vacation has become a national issue and many states have enjoyed the passage of school start date legislation.
Seniors often know that their memory and cognitive and physical abilities are declining, and reminders are only hurtful,” But even when we manage to hold our tongue, frustration lingers. That’s when we have to be doubtfully mindful, because by repressing those emotions, we’re more likely to have an emotional outburst.
“You might be justifiably annoyed,” “but take a step back and consider how your parent must feel as they face the diminished capacities.” When people first start “slipping,” they are aware of the loss, and they are often terrified, scared and saddened.
Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live will discuss teacher attrition. Why are so many new teachers fleeing the profession after so few years in the classroom? What are the challenges and issues confronting teachers and driving many to leave the profession? In the cases, when teachers do not leave many indicate they are under intense stress ranging from demanding school districts to parents.
Are our teachers under fire? If so, what support do they need to provide the quality instruction that impact student achievement?
Joining Dr. Robinson on this week’s Parent Talk Live will be two teachers who will discuss the challenges of being a teacher in today’s educational systems.
Dr. Robinson’s first guest is Mr. Walter Duncan. Mr. Duncan is 14 year professional teacher. Mr. Duncan is the creator of the Facebook group The Teachers' Round Table was created to discuss progressive thought in K-12 education. The Round Table was formed by Walter Duncan, a 7th and 8th grade English teacher. Walter is also the Co-Founder of Design by Educators, Inc., a social impact company whose mission is to design technology that works for teachers, rather than making work for teachers.
