Job and work ready curriculum

It may be some of the standard "job searching preparation" and work skills material. However, it's designed with the perspective that the students (youth and adults) have these six components in their life:

I'm Motivated, Positive, Achieving, Committed and Teachable.

When you present​ information, it's important to intersection the head (thinking/information), heart (motivation) and hands (application). Then the habits will develop that are beneficial to the student and society.

Each section is front/back and can stand alone. You make the copies you need. IMPACT is designed in a worksheet format.

What my band director from Paul H. Pewitt School District in Texas (Graduate '79) taught me about leadership. (click on the title link)

Salute to our Educators

I am a teacher, don’t take me wrong. I’m commissioned to be strong.
I serve on the front lines of our public classes;
Trying to balance all of the factor’s masses.
I’ve got a passion to teach and mold;
I’ll pursue this mission as if it were gold.
For these students deserve my very best.
It's about life and not just some test.
