What is a Democratic Leadership style and how do leaders become more equally yoked?
Instead of leader roles being so political and stuck on titles and roles, how do we get back to the core of why organizations were started.. helping people.
We have rules and policies in organizations for a reason but we can vary the approach with others to make a huge impact.
Ever since high school she was in leadership roles including the ROTC for 4 years and the largest organization in undergrad- campus tours. Her passion and innate gift in leadership was the catalyst for her education endeavors. Democratic Collaborative is the buzz word that she has gotten her Doctorate of Education dissertation in. Undergrad was at Winston Salem State University and her masters from Strayer University and EDD was at Capella University.Right now she is a 5th grade teacher but also did 8 years of higher education online teaching.
People always ask her WHY 5th grade? Listen to her answer.
Passion is a motto and way of life and it also makes for the best way to educate and make an impact on the developing generation. She pushes for you greatness in yourself.
Do you have to go to a 4 year college or even a trade school or community college to reach your potential and be the best that you can be?
What is the difference between a PhD and an EDD? Why did she go the EDD route?
EDD take and gather the research for a specific program or problem and give recommendations and solutions and hopefully get it implemented typically within 6-12 months. A big difference between Phd and EDD is the long term view versus fixing the issue immediately.
Personality, Drive, Commitment, Submissiveness with new clients, her Approach, Open Ended Questions are her top qualities and take a listen for some of the adversity she had to overcome.
When students are deciding on a major and a school… research a school that has a strong qualified program in that field. Just because a school is well known, doesn’t mean that the exact major you want is good. High graduation rates are important and if you need to, just take a broad variety of classes your freshman year and really focus on what makes you excited to study each day. Then declare a major.
Young people need to volunteer and not expect to get paid for everything. Plus learn other reasons to volunteer.
When is a good time to move your kids to a new city so you can further your career?
She launched her own Non-Profit that caters to Single Parents: mom and dads. As well as Veterans. Programs are geared for free workshops and a helping hand. For instance: resume workshops, maybe a bus pass for a month so you can go to the interview and secure a new job and even a workshop on how to recognize child abuse.
Hear about what her 1-2 hour post work, kids do homework oasis is all about each day.
What is diabetical… its hilarious!
