Dr. Pamela Freeman (2003), said that "curriculum is where the child is."
Dr. Freeman (2003), also stated that "in order to educate the mind of a child today, we must first capture his or her heart."
Is your school's curriculum flexible enough to meet the child where she or he is?
Is it possible that we have been so busy with the X's and O's that we failed to connect with our students?
Dr. Clement Glenn (2006), stated that "the goal is to remove stress; stress from fear, frustration and anxiety, to foster maturity (i.e. wisdom). The Pathway to Wisdom is understanding. And, The Pathway to Understanding is Knowledge and Love (positive feedback)."
Our children need positive feedback; even when it may not be warranted. They are human. They react (quickly, immediately, immaturely, and often without a complete thought process), sometimes they respond (most often, an ample amount of thought has occurred), and unfortunately they act-out (verbal and physical actions, aggressive posturing, sometimes pre-meditated) in responses to [X].
In the K-12 school setting, [X] can be many "things," "events (sometimes compounded)," "processes," and "human resources."
How are teachers and administrators to know which things, events, processes or human resources may be increasing the likelihood of a negative reaction or acting-out episode? What is the difference in the approach utilized by counselors and school psychologist? How are teachers and administrators to know when a student would greatly benefit by having a Professional Life Coach vs. a counselor?
As a Professional Life Coach, who knows Crisis Prevention Intervention, is a Human Growth and Development, and Behavioral Specialist, and is certified in Special Education; plus, has successfully worked with, and maintained a good rapport with challenging students who have been diagnosed and not, and is well versed in the functioning of The Philosophical Aspects of Cultural Differences, I know that I can help.

Individual Student Assessment
With all that is going on in lives of young people today, educators can benefit from accessing the expertise of professionals in the "village." The village needed to raise/educate/develop a child today is greater than it has ever been before. Bringing a professional educator in, with a special education, behavioral specialist, parenting, and a successful track record of connecting-to-reach learners, could be all that is needed to avert a suicide or disaster and improve the life of a precious soul.
