Weeks ago I was helping my protège @cheywiz & @andrea_moniqueee who’s a friend of mine on their martial arts kicking. I challenged Cheyenne in doing board breaking w/ a jump back kick (looks more like a jump turning back kick lol). She tried a few times until she broke it. I was proud of her efforts and glad to see she broke it. Then Andrea was inspired and wanting to try board breaking as well. Not having any martial arts background and being that on that day was the first time ever that I seen her kick, I thought about it and decided to give her an opportunity. So I told her to break it with a front kick. At first there was hesitation because she never broke a board before which was understandable. But as I guided her with instruction, telling her that she could do it and her believing in herself, Andrea went for it. Like Cheyenne, it took her a couple of times, but she managed in the end to break through it. I was proud. What’s the point of this post? We as martial artists have a responsibility to teach those who seek it (also who are responsible with it) to help them achieve knowledge that they may not know, to help them go through that challenge of “I can’t” which in the end can result to “I can and I will”, to be their guiding light and be their guiding example. If we don’t teach what we know, then we never learned and if we don’t share what we know, then we are selfish and are showing the world that being this way is the right way. Wrong, we must help others, to be genuine and never be negative. I want to thank Cheyenne and Andrea for taking me in as their “mentor”, even though I’m no one special and just a regular guy that’s born and raised in Annapolis, MD. #boardbreaking#frontkick#jumpbackkick#martialarts#taekwondo#karate#teaching#mentor#mentoring#student#teacher#empowering#ican#instagramhub#iphoneonly#instadaily#imovie#ignation#igaddict#igdaily#igers#filmoftheday#film#movieoftheday#likeforlike#bestoftheday#webstagram#movie

This year I’ve decided to try and make it my mission to show other amputees what I go through on a day to day basis. And hopefully by showing, share some lessons I’ve learned and tricks. Here I’m simply showing my end of the day after 9 mattress deliveries. Redness almost in every spot that’s been uncomfortable to say the least. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Keep your head up, and watch how many socks you have on! One too little all day and you’ll end up with a scab on your knee! Any questions feel free to ask! #amputee#pain#live#conquer#inspire#teaching#tampa

SHOW ME YOU'RE DONE • How do you occupy students when they're done with a problem but you're waiting to review it with everyone? •
I make up the craziest things for my students to do for those 1-2 minutes, but our favorite might be balancing a pencil on the nose. My favorite part? It keeps them quiet too. 😉

We are honoured to have collaborated with all the partners on the Atlas and educational tools. ・
A giant floor map based on the Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada has been travelling the country, giving educators and students a chance to take a different look at Canada.
These grade 5 and 6 students at Sister MacNamara school in Winnipeg have been using the map to learn about Indigenous governance and treaties.
"I felt it was very important for the students to look at the original territories of this land and not the boundaries that most maps show of Canada and the provinces," said teacher Jeremy Haines.
The map measures 11 by 8 metres and has to be packed and shipped inside of a hockey-type duffel bag.

My brilliant and wonderful daughter Joya Allegra Lonsdale (dark hair, Here with her cousin Eva Isabel Us ) is a Boston psychotherapist,is going to be teaching a class on trauma at her Alma Mater, Boston University, In a couple of weeks. A teacher at BU has been using a paper written when Joya was studying for her masters degree as a template To teach others how to write a paper on psychology. I know Joya will do a fantastic job of teaching and will probably be asked back to do more. I’m incredibly proud of her and love her so much! #mydaughter#psychotherapy#bostonuniversity#teaching
Someone asked me today if I ever doubted becoming a teacher. •
I had to stop and think. Had I ever doubted my career choice....OF COURSE! Who hasn’t?! (If you’re shaking your head no, come on, be reeeeeal honest with me here!😉) We’ve ALL had bad days or days where you feel like throwing in the towel. Whether it’s the work load, the stress, difficult parents, behavior problems. I mean at least one (if not all) of these things has made me question my own sanity in choosing this career.
But I will tell you exactly what I told this person. It’s OKAY to have doubts. But don’t let these doubts control you. You HAVE to put the positives first. You have to make sure that the positive things you take away from your day outweigh the negative. Mindset, my friends. We preach it to our kiddos but we also have to practice what we preach.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, I ALSO told this person that I wouldn’t choose another career if I could. Because I know that all of my positivities will one day become wonderful, future world changing humans.💛
MENTAL HEALTH DAYS • Something that took me a really, REALLY long time to realize was to use my sick days. All of them. Mental health days are just as important as taking a day for the common cold. 🤕• Repeat after me... “I cannot pour from an empty cup!” • There is no possible way for you to be the best version of yourself for your students if you are burned out, checked out, or stressed out.☠️• So please, take my advice and use your sick days. You are important too, and you matter!🤩• (📷 via @thedesignerteacher )
