About this title


Let not your true purpose be defined by the organization, the system . . . or that you be defined by it! Understand the policies and laws that dictate what you should say or do within the boundaries of the system. Excel in the practices of your field, defining what and how you perform your art and how you shall be known! Seek out people of quality who provide guidance and truly care about your success. Yield to prayer, maintaining your faith in good and bad times even when things don’t make sense, knowing your goal is to make a difference! Professional educators are now living in an era where there is increased concern about the quality of education in public schools in America. States are beginning to take a greater role in monitoring and maintaining higher academic standards. Communities across the country are scrutinizing the expense of public education. Local school districts are expressing concern about the district’s ability to continue providing high-quality teaching and other related services with diminishing resources. Parents everywhere, regardless of ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or cultural family background want the assurance that their child will receive adequate and appropriate academic preparation that will lead to a productive livelihood for their child’s future. The intended result of this book is to serve as a guide and inspiration to educators whether they serve in the capacity of a teacher, paraprofessional, or administrator as they continue their journey in the field of public education, especially during these most challenging times. America needs every person involved in the education of youth to remain steadfast. Each educator makes a difference in the lives of youth. America’s youth need and are counting on you.
