    Finding Your Path to Personal Fulfillment

    in Self Help

    May 21, 2015 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio


    THEME: Finding Your Path to Personal Fulfillment


    INTERVIEW GUEST: Sue Batton Leonard


    Sue Leonard is an Author, Writer and Blogger. She is the Founder and President of Cornerstone Fulfillment Service, LLC --- a company specializing in e-commerce and e-marketing for independent publishers since 1998. She is the author of the 3-time award winning memoir, titled, Gift of a Lifetime: Finding Fulfilling Things in the Unexpected.


    THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: 


    As most of us have learned, we cannot find happiness by making it our goal. Happiness is the unintended benefit of pursuing personal dreams and living true to yourself. When you proactively connect the person you are with the things that you choose to do, a deep sense of fulfillment will emerge. Fulfillment is a form of happiness, or satisfaction, that is the direct result of fully developing your abilities or character. Personal fulfilment is best defined as the achievement of life goals which are important to you, in contrast to the goals of society or even your family. Personal fulfilment is an ongoing journey for most of us. They journey commences when we start becoming conscious of ourselves, our surroundings and our past. But, for many of us, finding the right path to this level of consciousness and fulfilment is a challenge. Sometimes finding a path to fulfillment can be buried in the unexpected. How can you find your path to personal fulfillment?

    in Education

    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources.


    We've all experienced the museum as a place to go as a member of an elementary class or on a stormy weekend day. In the internet age, museums have an audience far beyond those who walk through the doors. Museums have a long history of creating resources to help teachers plan a class visit and materials for students that extend their visit into the classroom and home.


    In this show, we will explore a new generation of museums that provide rich experiences for learners that leverage the museums expertise and collections to extend their reach and impact on learners. We will hear how they plan and create those assets and discuss how they have or would like to work with publishers to increase the the reach and integration of their offerings into school practices. 


    Guests at the table:


    1. Kris Wetterlund, Director of Education and Interpretation at Corning Museum of Glass


    2. Dr. Marjee Chmiel, Associate Director of Curriculum and Communications at Smithsonian Science Education Center 


    3. Melissa Wadman, Manager of Program Evaluation at the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access

        Denisha Raychelle Hardeman, also known as Dede, was born in Houston, TX on February 18, 1991. Denisha grew up entertaining people. She would perform all the time in church plays, speeches and praise dancing. The church noticed a spark in Denisha, which prompted her to want to continue acting and singing. Growing up Denisha also took on another hobby, writing. She won many creative writing contests in school and her poem “Halloween Night” won a poetry contest and was published in a poetry book when she was 8 years old.


    In Elementary school, Denisha was the captain of her school cheerleading team and was also the president of the school when she was in 4th grade. After noticing her leadership and creative schools, MadingElementary’s new choir director, Mrs. Roache, decided to start an acting program. She starred Denisha in her first stage play, “A Christmas Story,” where Denisha played the quirky and funny version of Little Red Riding Hood. In middle school, Denisha auditioned for Pershing Middle School for Fine Arts. During her first audition, the theater teachers told her that they wanted her in the school no matter what. She did not have to attend the 2nd and 3rd auditions. During her time at Pershing, Denisha starred in “Cinderella” as Cinderella, “The Wizard of Oz” as Dorothy, “For Colored Girls” as the Lady In Red, and “Romeo and Juliet” as Juliet. Denisha also won best actress for the school her 6th and 8th grade year.
