Sometimes, it seems as though we have lost that “drive” or don’t feel satisfied with work. With red tape, extra duties at work, or too many limits placed on your ability to perform at your best level, we can experience so much stress that it robs us of focus which leads to more absenteeism, less productivity, arguments with colleagues and it can permeate throughout the workplace environment.

Assess your Stress!



Published by JaDonnia B.

An education and counseling professional, I focus my expertise on diversity, inclusion and family engagement/empowerment Of particular importance is the partnership between parents and the community schools that serve their children. Highlighting strategies, tips and evidence-based best practices for family engagement, my aim is to alter mindsets, broaden perspectives, foster empathy, and build capacity. Offering 'food for thought' and inviting discussion, I also tell truths rarely explored. A holistic culturally-responsive approach to teaching, learning and engaging others begins with respect. I promote respect and fully integrating curricular diversity in formal learning settings! Collaboration with families is necessary, because parents hold the master key that unlocks doors to child health and wellness, academic achievement, and believe it or not, teacher excellence and stronger school communities.
