ACADEMIC EXPECTATIONS: WHY DO WE EXPECT SO MUCH FROM OUR EDUCATORS

“Cut them some slack.”


doing their job

Teachers are expected by the masses to be superheroes. We send our kids to school and think that the teacher should give them all the tools they need to be great. But the teacher is just a small part of your child’s success. The parents play a role in the child doing well in life as well. Yet the teachers take a punishment when the students aren’t performing.

work with them not against them

Playing a role in your child’s success and having good teaching is what creates the successful kid. But that depends in the relationship the parent has with the school and teacher. As a child, my mother played a vital role in us performing because she would call the schools for anything. Didn’t matter what it was, just to keep up with what we were doing. This way the teacher didn’t feel everything was on them.

give them the tools

We want them to educate our children, but we don’t give them the tools to do so. We have schools with old books and outdated equipment. Then the performance is low and we say we need better teachers. Well, how do you make due when you’re at an insane disadvantage. So the grades are a reflection of the lack of backing from not only the parents, but our government. So if you’re not going to be part of the solution, then you’re contributing to the problem.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
