yes. i am a dual enrolled student so i have attained professional skills as well as academic excellence. i also attend edumatics®, which has enabled me to build the confidence to take the real world head on. edu ati s® k o led e s op | a edu atio al e s e ti e s, s ool se o as parents, we should fully understand the rules of the game so our students can win. i would have never thought that the measuring stick my child was held to was lower than that of someone in a more prosperous zip code. that’s not fair. and please don’t applaud my child for being beyond an excellent student, when she is just meeting the mark, she’s just average. i refuse to allow my daughter to be sold the fantasy that she is currently performing as an academic scholar. however, i will ensure she has the tools needed to allow her to become the academic scholar i know she can be. encouragingly with the assistance of edumatics®, she is on her way. o t e stude t, t e pa e t, t e tea e t es a, pa e t o a d ade a k, tea e + ea s e pe e e smaller classrooms to accommodate all learners. i have students that perform on a lower level that needs more of my attention. thus, i cannot neglect the other students. i am only one person, and all my students deserve my attention. i’ve always felt confident in my daughter’s academic abilities until i realized her school’s expectations were the bare minimum. once i compared her curriculum to another honor roll student at another school i realized she was average and not above average as i thought. q. as a senior, do you feel that you are ready for real world challenges? q.howdidedumatics®dothatforyou? q.whatdoyoulikemostabouthigh school? q.ifyoucanchangeonethingabout yourschool,whatwoulditbe? q.overalldoyoufeelthatyour teachers,facultyandstaffcareabout you? some. i feel like some of them are just doing their job and not caring in particular about “me.” by providing personal development alongside academic coaching. i like the fact that i get to spend half of the day at a traditional school and the other half at a trade school. i have to adapt to every teacher’s teaching style, however they don’t have to adapt to my learning style. if i don’t adapt to their teaching styles i can fail the class. also, i feel like the grading scales for final exams are unfair. the tests are given one way when everyone learns differently. the playing field should be leveled for all activities. for example, sports and drama clubs are promoted more than other activities. q.whatdoyoulikeleastabouthigh school? q. third grade is the first year for standardized testing. how do you feel about it? q. average? how did that make you feel? my daughter has been consistently on the honor roll since kindergarten. her father and i have always thought she was reaching beyond her scholastic goals (based on her report card). the reality of how she has fared against other third graders, based on florida state standards and other students in more affluent areas, is heartbreaking. q. how have you decided to resolve your concerns? i started researching what resources i could acquire for her. i called and visited many places. then, after a conversation with cindy, a parent of a gifted child, we talked about tutoring. cindy explained, that although her child did not struggle academically, she was able to stay gifted by continually receiving academic coaching. cindy adamantly stated, “don’t wait until your child is struggling to get tutoring…its imperative that we keep them challenged to garner ongoing scholastic achievement." i understood that tutoring is not to be utilized once a struggle ensues. tutoring is a necessary component for academic achievement. and then she made me promise i would contact edumatics® and so i did. q. what happened when you visited edumatics®? it was a very positive experience. the office is very quaint. the staff was very friendly. i still wasn’t sure if they were going to have what i needed for my child. i was wrong. they provided her with a free assessment test to gauge where she was scholastically. they reassured me by answering all my questions and concerns. we set goals specific to my daughter’s needs. i met the teacher that was going to be tutoring her and although nervous about this new endeavor for her, i was confident it was the best investment. q. lastly, what additional tools you think your child’s school should provide parents in order to help them with their child’s education? q. what are your thoughts about today’s educational society? before you can even teach you have to deal with the behavioral issues. you’re not just teaching a subject, you’re also teaching life skills, social skills, and behavioral modifications. the public school system puts too much emphasis on passing the state’s standardized tests versus actually teaching the subject. it’s too much stress on both me as the teacher and the students because i’m teaching to the state’s standards and not actually teaching the core subject. q. how does that make you feel as a teacher? if the students leave florida and go to another state, they should be able to perform on the same level. however, all kids do not perform well on standardized testing. that should not equate to whether or the student understood the concept. . q. why do you think the state has designed the school’s curriculum as such? q. as a teacher, what are some of the frustrations you encounter from both students and parents? lack of caring on the students’ part and lack of parental involvement. some parents expect for me to perform miracles with their children while they impart minimal academically at home. . q. how can parents help their children achieve academic success? parents should seek outside educational reinforcement. some times parents feel they are the best teachers in academic areas when statistics show that students learn more from outside instruction because the separation of parent to teacher cannot be met. then, there are some parents that have inadequate skills to assist their children academically. parents should register their students at academic coaching centers like edumatics®. edumatics® offers all the additional academic reinforcements students need in order to gain scholastic excellence. .q. how would you change current teaching methodologies at schools?

.edu ati sp o a . oedu ati s® k o led e s op | it first became popular as a means of serving the needs of mathematically gifted students, providing opportunities to both accelerate learning and increase the rigor and depth of learning. now, every student has access to the stem path. the call for stem integration to better secure the future of american education, and america itself, are the identifying factors that led to the stem revolution. many of the models adopted and used in stem education environments had made significant gains on improved student learning, and not solely with the academically gifted population. stem education is being brought forth in elementary& middle schools in order to help bridge academic gaps experienced amongst the student body. the advantage to integrating stem curriculum into all content areas at all grade levels is that it provides students with informal practice creatively solving problems long before they need to decide on a course of study for college. the opportunity to practice and understand engineering skills opens up a world of possibilities whereby students already have some experience and prior knowledge as to what their careers may be like. using engineering design principles to complete hands-on, problem-based projects also deepens the student’s understanding of processes and emphasizes many of what we now call 21st century skills (e.g., collaboration, critical thinking, and interpersonal communication). furthermore, stem integration can become a seemingly typical part of the learner’s educational experience on a daily basis, removing emphasis on gender lines and closing achievement gaps as students hone and master critical thinking skills. s.t.e.m. – the role this plays in a student’s scholastic achievement being that edumatics® overall goal for each student is to effectively and successfully compete in the global marketplace, we are introducing our very own “it kid academy.” edumatics® will place students on the advanced path to: ➢ master the technical knowledge necessary to build, troubleshoot, and repair computers ➢ learn the skills necessary to function as a pc support or help desk technician ➢ build a computer unit with their own hands, which is theirs to keep or donate at the end of the program science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (stem) education has emerged as one of the most sought after curriculum designs for integrating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics into k-12 education. 21 36 edu ati s® t kid a ade sign up for 4076560661 today photo ou tes : o e i iz lo . o
h o w t o s u c c e s s f u l l y g r o w y o u r b u s i n e s s . 1. know what you do and what you don't do. don’t try to be all things to all people, because it typically means you are not very good at any one thing. it is a mistake to take on far-reaching service offerings, develop products outside your comfort zone or expand outside of your target markets just to make a few extra bucks. when you do that, you jeopardize your true strength to focus on what you may not be successful at and create undo pressures for your team, your budgets, and your company as a whole. 2. stay focused on the prize. we have always tried to be very strategic in our approach to growth. we set three year business plans, track against those plans, and modify them when necessary. if you don't set goals, you have no way of measuring yourself, your team and your company against some pre-determined objectives. when everyone understands in a very crystal clear way what the overall goals of the organization are, it allows everyone to rally together and take pride in successfully accomplishing them. 3. remember that people work for people, not companies. it is rare when a business can successfully operate and grow without talented people. in fact, we often talk about our people being the only asset we have to sell and we are always looking for ways to improve our culture, our benefits, and the reasons why employees would want to keep working for us. many companies forget that true loyalty comes when employees believe that the organization and its leadership team care about them personally and professionally. this ultimately results in long-tenured employees, which has a very real and direct effect on company growth. 4. running a business well is different than being good at a trade or profession. it is often said that just because someone is good in pr, it doesn't mean they will be good at running a pr agency. the same is true for any profession. growing a successful business is all about having a good business mind, combined with a strong skillset in your particular area of expertise. the behind-the-scenes side of business--such as process, people management, billing and operations--are critical to business success. there has been a number of very smart people get into business only to ultimately fail because they didn't look at their business through the lens of operational success, and instead focused solely on being good at their profession. 5. passion is contagious. when you love what you do it shows to the people surrounding you every day in the office, facility or production plant. showing excitement and enthusiasm cannot be underscored enough in terms of how it relates to your team working harder, being more focused, and ultimately more successful at their job. this translates to a better end-product. the opposite can be said for someone who is an unhappy person, leads through negative motivation, creates a challenging work environment or frankly doesn't love what they do. 6. challenge yourself to always keep improving. technology is changing the world we live in every day. in order to stay relevant, it is important to innovate, regardless of your industry, as well as want to get better. this could mean new programs, new thinking or new processes. the fact is, you are either moving forward or you are becoming obsolete. at edumatics® we are constantly looking at our way of doing things and looking for ways to improve our end product, improve our client relations skills, and become more efficient at what we do, which ultimately drives greater profitability. 7. forget the "build it and they will come" mentality. during a challenging economy, many brands look at marketing as an expense and therefore try to cut it from the budget. however, the marketplace is littered with good ideas that lacked the marketing support to gain traction or they were launched with the ideology of "our product is so great, that consumers will flock to it." consumers are incredibly discerning about their money; as a result, they generally buy products that they have either sampled or have been referred to them. therefore, make sure that marketing is completely aligned with product innovation. it is also important to ensure that when the product is ready for retail consumption strong consideration has been given to how the product will be marketed. edu ati s® k o led e s op |i o@edu ati sp o a . o photo ou tes : d ea sti e. o we will assist with growing your business contact an edumatics® consultant today! 407-656-0661

ways parents can effectively assist their students to reach academic success parental involvement enhances academic performance. academic achievement increases when parents are involved in their children's education. the more intensively involved the parents are, the greater the positive impact on academic achievement. p a r e n t a l i n v o l v e m e n t l e a d s t o b e t t e r c l a s s r o o m b e h a v i o r . parental involvement not only enhances academic performance, but it also has a positive influence on student attitude and behavior. a parent's interest and encouragement in a child's education can affect the child's attitude toward school, classroom conduct, self-esteem, absenteeism, and motivation. p a r e n t s s h o u l d s t a y i n v o l v e d i n t h e i r c h i l d r e n ' s e d u c a t i o n f r o m p r e s c h o o l t h r o u g h h i g h s c h o o l . parental involvement can make a positive difference at all age levels. parental involvement tends to be the greatest with young children and tends to taper off as children get older. studies have shown, however, that involvement of parents of middle and high school students is equally important. in high school, for example, a parent's encouragement can influence whether a child stays in school or drops out. similarly, a child may consider going to college more seriously when parents show interest in the child's academic achievements and talk with the child about the benefits of a college education. t r a i n i n g h e l p s p a r e n t s o f d i s a d v a n t a g e d c h i l d r e n g e t i n v o l v e d . parents of minority or low-income children are less likely to be involved in their children's education than parents of non- disadvantaged children. if they receive adequate training and encouragement, however, parents of minority or low-income children can be just as effective as other parents in contributing to their children's academic success. r e a d i n g t o g e t h e r a t h o m e g r e a t l y i m p r o v e s r e a d i n g s k i l l s . reading in particular improves greatly when parents and children read together at home. reading aloud with a child contributes significantly to the child's reading abilities. the critical role of parental involvement in a child's education has been examined in countless studies and reports. the research overwhelmingly supports the following conclusions. s c h o o l s c a n e n c o u r a g e p a r e n t a l i n v o l v e m e n t i n m a n y w a y s . significant parental involvement is most likely to develop when schools actively seek out ways to get parents involved and offer training programs to teach parents how to get involved in their children's education. p a r e n t a l i n v o l v e m e n t l i f t s t e a c h e r m o r a l e . schools and teachers benefit from parental involvement because involved parents develop greater appreciation for the challenges that teachers face in the classroom. teacher morale is improved. communication between home and school helps a teacher to know a student better, which in turn allows the teacher to teach the student more effectively. communication also helps to dispel any mistrust or misperceptions that may exist between teachers and parents. p a r e n t a l i n v o l v e m e n t b e n e f i t s c h i l d r e n a n d p a r e n t s . by becoming involved in their children's education, moms and dads get the satisfaction of making a contribution to their children's education and future. they have a better understanding of the school curriculum and activities and can be more comfortable with the quality of education their child is receiving. they spend more time with their children and become able to communicate better with them. some studies show that a parent's participation in a child's education may inspire the parent to further his or her own education. t i m e c o n s t r a i n t s a r e t h e g r e a t e s t b a r r i e r t o p a r e n t a l i n v o l v e m e n t . lack of time is the top reason parents give for not participating more in their children's education. lack of time is also cited by school personnel as a reason for not seeking parental support more actively. thus, effective solutions to enhanced parent involvement require freeing up time of parents and teachers or finding ways to work around their schedules. ill p ovide ou pa e ts, stude ts a d tea he s ith all the tools eeded i o de to de ive su ess. we make learning a lifestyle! contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org 407-656-0661 edu ati s® k o led e s op |.edu ati sp o a . o photo courtesy: hfrg.org
