Join me for this Special Edition on LIF Talk with Cherie as Ashanti speaks about her newest project that teaches Chemistry through animated songs and mini-lectures that breaks the information down to the most elementary level. This new learning system will help high school students, special ed students, adults seeking to go back to school, homeschool students. And once completed will be affordable than any traditional tutorial program and will be most convenient because it will be in the comfort of your home and could be reviewed as often as the learner would like. If, or by faith when the project reaches beyond its original goal, steps will be made to provide tutorial DVDs for all math and sciences in K-12 education.
Being a married mother of two sons, I am also a self-directed, enthusiastic educator of 15 years with a commitment to student development. Awards/recognitions include Teacher of the Year, maintaining EOC test scores 90-100% for 9 precedent years, and having a low achievement gap within all reporting categories of 5%. I initiated an effective alternative method of dealing with minor infractions instead of administrative referrals. I am an author of a book on closing the achievement gap that cleverly implies your students’ actions are a reflection of your attitude toward them. I am the founder/executive director of "YHWH Tutoring and Assistance", a new nonprofit organization that provides year-round assistance for transitioning 9th graders but also offer mentorship services to high schoolers with scholarship incentives to ensure on-time graduation with post secondary plans.
Tonight on the GetAtMe 3PcSnack man do we have a smoker. Producer Dun Deal (just off his "Stoner" Young Thug success) has struck gold again with new artist Kevin Gates' "Amnesia" (man this is that cut). Then we have The WeekEnd (probably the best underground online group in terms of that silent majority) and their new cut "Ur NUh" (this group is like the temptations if they all were Drake). and we wind up with a fan favorite who after so much time has passed is releasing a new single. Ashanti's "Early In The Morning" ft French Montanna might wind up being the spring time jam. We're at the last month off the first quarter and the spring time releases are in play. So check out these 3 that will be in the 2nd quarter (Apr, May, June) mix. #GetAtMe

The people in my family are griots.
A griot is a West African term for a storyteller of family, tribe, nation and cultural history.
A griot (/'gri.o?/; French pronunciation: ?[g?i.o]), jali or jeli (djeli or djéli in French spelling) is a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet and/or musician. The griot is a repository of oral tradition and is often seen as a societal leader due to his traditional position as an adviser to royal personages. As a result of the former of these two functions, he is sometimes also called a bard.
"Though [the griot] has to know many traditional songs without error, he must also have the ability to extemporize on current events, chance incidents and the passing scene. His wit can be devastating and his knowledge of local history formidable".
Although they are popularly known as "praise singers", griots may use their vocal expertise for gossip, satire, or political comment.
Who do we have from our community that will have precise political commentary?
We are hidden away from commentary that will help our people because our time in front of the fire talking to our ancestors and our elders has been eliminated and the ideas of the dominate culture that is filtered through the televisions have become our concern and our touchstone.
Let's tell our stories and keep our culture alive!
