Becoming an Effective Black Educator Series — Chapter 2: Stay Out of the Zoo

September 13, 2020

"A drama-free, stress-free and gossip-free work environment is essential to become a highly effective Black educator."

Welcome back to The Black Scholars Podcast, a community for Black and Brown educators and scholars. On episode 46, we continue the Becoming an Effective Black Educator series, as I discuss why you should avoid the teacher's lounge, how it impacted my career, and what I do with that time instead. The purpose of this episode is to help you maximize your time, protect your energy, and be at your best for your respective scholars. The teacher's lounge aka the zoo is a nasty place to be at most schools. Stay away.

 

Your thoughts and questions are welcomed. Join the show by leaving a voicemail message about the podcast or any of the content discussed on the podcast. I look forward to hearing from you all.

Becoming an Effective Black Educator Series — Chapter 1: Don’t Be Dusty

Becoming an Effective Black Educator Series — Chapter 1: Don’t Be Dusty

September 6, 2020

"Local districts provide you a living wage not a wealth-building wage; it keeps you within the cycle."

Welcome back to The Black Scholars Podcast, a community for Black and Brown educators and scholars. On episode 45, we begin a new series on the book Becoming an Effective Black Educator. In this first episode, we discuss why we don't have more Black educators, the power of a growth and entrepreneurial mindset, ways to increase your current income, selling your expertise, entrepreneurship, and short and long term investments. The purpose of this episode is to slowly guide you out of the typical "I'm-broke" impoverished educator's mindset. With strategic planning, execution, and purpose, educators can become wealthy as well.

America to Me Series — Episode 10: America Will Be

America to Me Series — Episode 10: America Will Be

August 30, 2020

America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the final installment of the series. On episode 10, "America Will Be” of the America to Me series, I only focus on two issues: the importance of effective school leadership and why educators should only focus on what we can control. I've enjoyed watching and analyzing this documentary and look forward to future work from these filmmakers. I'll keep an attentive eye on the progress of Oak Park and River Forest High School and that community. After all, I am a product of the Midwest.

 

The next series will focus on my book, Becoming an Effective Black Educator, available via paperback or e-Book. I'm excited to discuss this content in details as it directly relates to our current conundrums in education and within our own careers. I want everyone to be successful, and I plan on giving away a few copies during this series.

America to Me Series — Episode 9: The Invisible T-Shirt

America to Me Series — Episode 9: The Invisible T-Shirt

August 23, 2020

America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the ninth installment of the series. On episode 9, "The Invisible T-Shirt” of the America to Me series, I relate my experience attending small colleges in predominately-White towns to Kendale's college visit. I also analyze Tiara's academic struggles and a potential solution. Terrence goes to court with his mother regarding guardianship, and Ms. Stovall's Woven program is met with resistance from administration, again. Lastly, I discuss the question, "Why aren't there more Black and Brown educators?" It's not an easy answer.

 

The next series will focus on my book, Becoming an Effective Black Educator, available via paperback or e-Book. I'm excited to discuss this content in details as it directly relates to our current conundrums in education and within our own careers. I want everyone to be successful, and I plan on giving away a few copies during this series.

America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the eighth installment of the series. On episode 8, "Nobody Can Hold You Down” of the America to Me series, I share effective strategies to combat against student's anxiety particularly test anxiety, which is currently impacting Caroline.

Special Edition Episode—Black Wall Street

Special Edition Episode—Black Wall Street

June 1, 2020

Memphis, Tennessee—Originally published in late 2017 for my original podcast, The 3 Bearded Kings Podcast, this episode is more fitting now than ever before. This episode will feel more like an audio-documentary than anything else. I pray listeners of this podcast don't take my silence on current events, notably police brutality, racism, and protests, as acrimony. Although the purpose of this show isn't politics, it would be rather asinine to assume that as a Black man, Black son, Black father, Black brother, Black nephew, Black cousin, Black friend, Black author, Black podcaster, and Black educator that I do not recognize the correlation between our issues in the classroom and society. This company, Black Scholars Publishing, will always produce content with a purpose. This episode epitomizes that.

The Importance of Energy in Teaching with Chelsie Griffin & Brittany Goldsby

October 20, 2019

“If you’re not right yourself, how can you be effective in the classroom, one? But how can you effectively lead and mold the future of this society? You can’t…”

On this episode, I am joined by two lovely educators: Chelsie Griffin and Brittany Goldsby. Chelsie (Baton Rouge, Louisiana), a 5th grade mentor teacher and a doctorate student at LSU, was previously on episode 6, “Stop Pushing Good Teachers Out.” Brittany (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) is a 9th grade English teacher, a poet, an artist and a curriculum committee participant. We discuss the importance of energy: physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Some of our strategies to boost energy included sleep, yoga, nutrition, classroom management tactics, and more.
