A little about Mario Depeine, Sr.

As an educator I get the opportunity to get a small glimpse of how our society is shaping up. Children come into the classroom with all types of perspectives. A lot of the perspectives are a result of their environment. Some of those perspectives reflect the home life or lack of. Some reflect the street life and some just reflect the media that the children are exposed to.

Middle School children are just starting out in life. You see how their characters and personalities are shaping up. Many can be molded or adjusted easily others are a lot more resistant to change depending on their circumstance.

I work in an urban district. While there I see many interesting and at times disheartening things. Hopefully my experiences as an educator can shed some light on what we can do to better prepare our children for the future.

Name three things we can do to prepare our children for learning in school

As an educator, I am finding that a lot of students come to school unprepared to learn. They have too many burdens that they are carrying as children. They are preoccupied and they need a better support system. Please let us know what we can do, especially for our children who live in the urban areas.

  1. 1) Inspire your kids to have a goal. Not their parent's goals but something they want to achieve for themselves. This will help them to build character as they work to overcome the obstacles to achieve their goal.

    2) Teach your kids how to persevere and keep their eye on the goal. Kids will often give up when things get tough. If parents allow giving up without valid reasons, they forgo the opportunity to develop backbones.

    3) Help your kids to understand the importance of having a teacher. Teach them how to maximize on the privilege of an education
