The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program is the largest school based father engagement program in the nation with over 4000 schools participating.
This week, we are so proud to have as our guest, National Teacher of the Year - Mr. Sean McComb. Mr. McComb is a 9-12th grade English teacher at Patapsco High School & Center for the Arts in Baltimore, Maryland. He is currently completing his eighth year as an educator and has been at Patapsco since beginning his teaching career.
“A strong teacher-student relationship facilitates the opportunity for deeper learning and more critical thinking,” says McComb. He firmly believes that public education is the foundation for opportunity and success for any child. In addition to his role as an English instructor, McComb helped develop, and continues to spearhead, Patapsco’s Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program which boasted a 98% college acceptance rate for its last two graduating classes.
McComb’s devotion to the teaching profession extends beyond the classroom as well. He also coaches the Patapsco Cross Country Team, supervises cultural exchange programs, and has led several university training sessions and presentations for future teachers. McComb says that he has found his purpose in teaching stating, “I have worked to engage my students and push them to achieve the excellence within them. Every child deserves nothing less, and my calling is to champion that effort.”
He holds a B.A. in English Literature and a Masters of Education in English Literature from the University of Pittsburgh. He also holds a Certificate in School Improvement Leadership from Goucher College.
Each week, WatchDOGS Radio host Keith Schumacher and co-host Chris Danenhauer discuss how this program is impacting families and schools across our nation and in four foreign countries.

On Aug. 6, Gov. Christie signed into law the TEACH NJ Act, the groundbreaking tenure-reform legislation that dramatically changes the way teacher tenure is acquired and kept in New Jersey schools. The cornerstone of the law will be the statewide implementation of a new system of evaluating educators, which is now being piloted in two dozen school districts.
Join program host Ray Pinney as he discusses teacher tenure and evaluations with Dr. Michael Kuchar, superintendent of the Bergenfield School District, which is one of the pilot school districts implementing new teacher evaluations, and attorney Steven Fogarty of the firm of Fogarty and Hara, which represents numerous school districts in northern New Jersey.

Because Jamie Oliver’s food programs originated in England, the question is, are kids there now choosing to eat healthier foods? If not, what is turning kids on to better-for- you meals there? Or, are they eating them at all? What about the school lunch programs – have they improved? Or, are moms in the United Kingdom dealing with the same struggles of how to feed kids as we do in the United States? Our guest, Katharine Tate, known as “The Food Teacher,” is a qualified teacher, nutritional therapist and “mum” who has worked with children in schools located in the UK, New Zealand and Hong Kong. She’ll tell us about food programs that do work, such as educating parents, “Cookery Schools” and inspirational Head Teachers. Judging from her recipes and family health tips, Katharine is innovative while focusing on nutrition, well-being and fresh and flavor-filled recipes that appeal to the whole family.

When Alabama parent Jessica Baughn discovered that her child's sixth grade class did a re-enactment of the killing of unarmed Ferguson Teen Michael Brown by white officer Darren Wilson, she blasted the teacher on Facebook. The teacher is now suspended without pay. Should parents use social media to reprimand teachers? In most cultures teachers are highly respected authorities and the classroom is the kingdom where they reign supreme. But in America, relationships between teachers and parents are too often confrontational. Teachers blame parents for failing to teach their children respect for adults and parents blame teachers for not being able to make their child learn. If you're a teacher, you're probably fed up with confrontational parents who won't take the responsibility for creating the right home environment for the child. If you're a parent, you're probably frustrated with teachers who don't seem to like their jobs and also don't seem to like your child. How does a parent disagree with a teacher without being disagreeable? How do we learn to work together for the benefit of the children?
THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH: NCTE
What's Really Happening in Literacy Teacher Education
University of Louisville Early Childhood Prof Kathryn Whitmore and
Colorado State's Louann Reid are our NCTE guests.
Hear Stand in the Gap Conference with perspectives from child, parent, teacher and a citizen looking for accountability in this Common Core Standards Initiative that has nationalized education. Common Core is the beachhead issue. Get informed and understand the planners such as David Coleman who is also pushing unpatriotism in the Advanced Placement US History also helped write the values manipulation Common Core. Read his goals here. In order to defeat Common Core you must know why it is even here and go beyond the soundbites that $$ can buy. As you can hear from this Part I of a series the country loses if the citizens choose to go along and ignore the truth. God warned us:
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children." Hosea 4:6
