WHO AM I AM

I am a desktop publisher by trade. My basic education And training is in child development and human services. I am a publisher of childrenʼs books with a background in marketing. WHY I’M IN BUSINESS

As Bob Moses, founder of the Algebra Project, sees algebra as a leading cause of high school drop out, the pressure of trying to pass Algebra. I see it as a civil rights issue. I have the training in special education and other areas to make a difference. Ace & prison - data (2009 - incarceration rates for people of color) "Mass arrests and Incarceration of people of color – largely due to drug law violations – Have hobbled families and communities by stigmatizing and removing Substantial numbers of men and women. In the late 1990's, Nearly one in three African-American men (Moors in America) aged 20-29 were under criminal justice supervision, while more than Two out of five had been incarcerated- substantially more than had been incarcerated a decade earlier and orders of Magnitudes higher than that for the general population. Today, 1 in 15 African-American (Moor) children and


1 in 42 Latino children have a parent in prison, compared to 1 in 111 white children. (German Irish Italian American) 49 percent in some areas, a large majority of African-American (Moor) men – 55 percent in Chicago, – labeled felons for life, and, as a result, may be prevented from voting and accessing public housing, student loans and other American entitlements."

Increased student performance in mathematics, as well as greater numbers of students enrolling in college preparatory mathematics classes, is a welldocumented outcome of the project's work. Atlanta (CNN) -- Dozens of Atlanta public school educators falsified standardized tests or failed to address such misconduct in their schools, Gov. Nathan Deal said Tuesday in unveiling the results of a state investigation that confirmed widespread cheating in the city schools dating as far back as 2001. Some of the cheating could result in criminal charges, Deal said. "I think the overall conclusion was that testing and results and targets being reached became more important than actual learning for children," Deal said. "And when reaching targets became the goal, it was a goal that was pursued with no excuses." Falsifying test results made the schools appear to be performing better than they really were. But in the process, students were deprived of critical remedial education and taxpayers were cheated, as well, Deal said. ALGEBRA OUR WAY TODAY http://babyalgebratoys.blogspot.com/ By Introducing baby to algebra as early as the baby shower via algebra themed baby beginnings, such as: mobiles, room plaques, pacifiers and other baby algebra paraphernalia, we inundate baby with the message that algebra is important to baby and family tradition. Baby algebra uses pictures and key words to help Baby to generalize and grasp algebra concepts. Therefore, we can think our way through the stepping-stones called tests. While Colors and images react. Colors with one side of the brain, images with the other side of the brain, together, create and complete the learning process inherent at birth. WALLA! Baby does algebra. Algebra is Art

A story was shared with me that a couple traveled to Tijuana, Mexico Border city, from Los Angeles on a family outing with their two children. When they became distracted for a moment, which now they realize was a staged situation, the couple turned their heads for a moment, looked back to their sixyear-old daughter and she was gone. Finally, after searching hysterically for their baby, they were asked to leave the city. Amazingly, on the way back and at the border crossing back into the U.S. side, the mother looked over, saw her baby sitting upright in an adjacent car and leaped from their vehicle desperate to see her baby once again. Crying out for attention to the situation, "My Baby, My Baby". Upon reaching the vehicle where she had recognized her daughter to be in; she found that it was her baby, but she wasn’t her baby. The baby's insides had been removed. Only skin remained. She was stuffed from head to toe with drugs. The Mother to the baby was my sister's best friend.

"What the world will look like in 15 years." “The best way to predict the future is to create It.” - Peter Drucker. . In the absence of fear, we police ourselves. We, as a people no longer model Cain, Abel, Esau or Jacob. Here is a world where there is beauty in technology and environment. Today, we are our own corporations, taking what we need and sharing our excess. Our government is now a place where we meet to find out how we can better help one another. It has been 15 years since corporations, rather than beauty was the rule. In tomorrow’s society, we bear witness to a world no longer based on fear. Because of their exposure to technology and great care, children now have become both logical thinkers and great problem solvers choosing to make this world an even better place than the way it was when they came to it. We see, "Whole valleys filled once again with gardens of vegetables and orchards of all kinds of fruits, watered by fountains which burst forth in various parts and flow westward in refreshing streams. It came upon us suddenly like a scene of fairy enchantment. We saw nothing to compare with it in all Palestine." (http://topicalbible.org/s/shechem.htm)

In closing, the elements of our world now15 years later are now composed of luscious environment, astonishing buildings, remarkable technology, equal government and well-rounded people.

Remarks: Thanks for sharing

In English, make your sentences match throughout: In my example, I chose to stay on topic of 15 years from now. But I see you are comparing today with tomorrow (or now with then) (Setting What happened in the story? How did it end?) Each sentence has value, purpose and a place in communicating your message to your intended audience. Your first paragraph (called the Introduction Paragraph) serves a purpose of summarizing your intended message. A. The 1st sentence of your intro paragraph will be elaborated on, by further explaining/giving examples in the second paragraph. B. The 2nd sentence in your first paragraph is explained in the examples stated in the third paragraph. 11


C. The 3rd sentence of your first paragraph is explained in the examples stated in your fourth paragraph. Etc. Each series of last sentences summarize, restate, and reword everything already stated by each paragraph. The white house must smell a lot like the wonderful smells of gardens of vegetables and orchards of all kinds of fruits. According to the first Lady in 2009 "This is a big day. We've been talking it since the day we moved in," said the First Lady as she and two dozen local students broke ground on the White House Kitchen Garden on the South Lawn of the White House. Those students will be involved in the garden as it develops and grows, producing delicious, healthy vegetables to be cooked in the White House Kitchen and given to Miriam's Kitchen, which serves the homeless in Washington, DC. I'm inspired to start a garden, too. Take a deep breath. Relax. You know that nothing last forever and from that knowledge, you know that this homework assignment too shall pass. You will hand in the assignment and tomorrow's homework assignment will become yesterday's assignment now turned in for your teachers’ opinion. Now the stress is on your teacher, who has to grade it and hope that you will accept his or her opinion graciously. Stress can be good or bad. Choose one. If you choose well, you will pass your test, like those before you that have passed. Study what you want to learn and transform that into the homework. That way you are not wasting your time, instead you are developing. Allocate your time. If you have 8 hours that you can study, divide your time per subject matter. Develop a template for your writing.
