From Now On: School Safety After COVID-19

No matter your location, From Now On offers school leaders strategies for creating the safest learning environments for the people they serve, following a pandemic that can easily be described as the worse global crisis humanity has experienced thus far.

Dr. Deloris Benjamin, a school safety expert whose crisis management research has garnered over 30,000 reads, mentions, and downloads by academics seeking to study and add to the body of knowledge concerning safety in education settings. Originally written as a school safety system for the Ebola virus (2014), the book went on hiatus until 2019, when a strange and new virus hit our shores – COVID-19.

In this book, Dr. Benjamin reveals practical strategies, best-practices, and science-based recommendations by leading safety authorities. Learn how to:
– apply strategies, best-practices, and recommendations for school safety protocols;
– improve preparation confidence when planning and implementing school safety protocols;
– improve effectiveness and efficiency of business continuity at district and school levels after a pandemic;
– identify professional development areas to strengthen school safety preparedness and protocols;
…and much more.

From Now On will present you with real-life, school-based scenarios during the pandemic, and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your schools–whether you are a district leader looking to improve school safety policy, a school principal searching for ways to improve campus safety for staff and students, or a teacher who wishes to learn classroom-based strategies for personal and student safety.

Meet Ravishankar Duvvuri

My name is Ravishankar Duvvuri. You can call me Ravi. I am a reading and writing enthusiast. I blog/write about my areas of expertise which include Human Resources, Compensation and Benefits and Chess. I give wings to my imagination in the form of Short Stories and poetry. All my writ is always original in terms of thought. I don’t believe in rehashing existing thoughts or literature as my work. I have some projects of interest currently in the making. I have a corporate experience as a Human Resource Professional, which i gained post my MBA from NMIMS, Mumbai, which is a reputed management institute in India. Currently i am working with ManipalCigna Health Insurance, a company which i am in love with. I have also had some stints with companies like Damco (Maersk Group) , Xerox, Bharti Airtel and Essar Group. My core strength is incubating centers of excellence. I have also gained a lot of understanding about entrepreneurial spirit and other aspects of HR through my esteemed colleagues, past and present, and my daily lenghty discussions and debates with my better half. I have also worked in Indian Railways for around 2.5 years and have some family business understanding. I have had an entrepreneurial stint as a full time Options Trader. Chess is my passion and if i am not at work, you would mostly find me playing blitz on chess sites. I am a Candidate Master, a title awarded by the International Chess Federation, FIDE. I have an ambition to achieve higher titles at some stage of my life. Chess has given me some of the most beautiful moments of my life. I have made good friends, have traveled extensively and have learnt from the association with refined minds. I believe in the concept of a bucket list to be ticked off, with some easy and some not so easy targets. Writing a book was one of the easiest i had assumed, though the discipline required to bring a closure is immense. I am forever grateful to all the people who have valued me and shared their time, knowledge and experiences. Eveything i am today is because of this all rounded support.

The Teachers: A Year Inside America’s Most Vulnerable, Important Profession

A riveting, must-read, year-in-the-life account of three teachers, combined with reporting that reveals what’s really going on behind school doors, by New York Times bestselling author and education expert Alexandra Robbins.
 
Alexandra Robbins goes behind the scenes to tell the true, sometimes shocking, always inspirational stories of three teachers as they navigate a year in the classroom. She follows Penny, a southern middle school math teacher who grappled with a toxic staff clique at the big school in a small town; Miguel, a special ed teacher in the western United States who fought for his students both as an educator and as an activist; and Rebecca, an East Coast elementary school teacher who struggled to schedule and define a life outside of school. Robbins also interviewed hundreds of other teachers nationwide who share their secrets, dramas, and joys.
 
Interspersed among the teachers’ stories—a seeming scandal, a fourth-grade whodunit, and teacher confessions—are hard-hitting essays featuring cutting-edge reporting on the biggest issues facing teachers today, such as school violence; outrageous parent behavior; inadequate support, staffing, and resources coupled with unrealistic mounting demands; the “myth” of teacher burnout; the COVID-19 pandemic; and ways all of us can help the professionals who are central both to the lives of our children and the heart of our communities.

Contrast Brings Clarity: The Unexpected Path that Led Me to Homeschooling

Does one size really fit all? As lovely as that might sound, people come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. It is therefore virtually impossible to design a clothing item that can truly fit all people. In reality, the ‘one size fits all’ ideal is actually designed to fit sizes within a specific range.

Much like clothing items, traditional education centers around a ‘one size fits all’ methodology. As a result, a single-core teaching model is used for all students, regardless of their individual learning style. And this applies to teaching styles as well as to student evaluations. So, as a parent, what do you do when your child does not fit into that one core teaching model?

In Contrast Brings Clarity, Teressa answers that very question. Her courageous response completely changed the course of her life — and that of her son. While she struggled to build a suitable educational experience for him, Teressa overcame countless obstacles and, in due course, answered the homeschooling call. Eventually, side by side, mother and son embarked on the adventure of a lifetime.

Along her incredible journey, Teressa learned numerous strategies that helped her son succeed academically — and she would like to share those strategies with you.


Meet Teressa Kennedy

Hello Friends!

My name is Teressa and I am a proud homeschool mom, entrepreneur, and author with a passion for education.

At this point on our homeschooling journey, I feel it’s necessary to share our story with the goal of helping parents, and educators like yourself, work towards building stronger partnerships between schools and families in our mission to educate our children. From my personal experience, children learn best when parents, educators, other family members, and community members work together to encourage and support them along their journey.

As parents, we want the best for our children, but sometimes we stand in our own way by solely relying on our experiences to help educate them. My son gave me gentle reminders to show me that he and I have two different learning styles. As much as I tried to teach him the way I was taught, it was not effective. Also, I came to the realization that I had limitations, and needed others to help support my son and me along our educational journey.

We have an amazing village of fellow parent educators, family members, teachers, and clients who all share the same vision about supporting our children’s unique educational journey.

I hope our story will encourage you.

All the best,
Teressa

I Only Wanted to Live: The Struggle of a Boy to Survive the Holocaust

cover

A broad picture of the Holocaust from the point of view of a child

This book is a memoir of a child who is swept into the whirlwind of the Holocaust. The epic history is narrowed down to the struggle of a single boy nicknamed Leosz to survive the war. From age 7 to age 13, he endures all the horrors that the Holocaust brings upon the Jewish people. Life hangs on split-second timing, decision-making in impossibly cruel circumstances, incredible resourcefulness, luck and the help of others, even Germans.

In the Krakow Ghetto, Leosz is saved from three mass deportations to the death camps. He escapes the ghetto, survives for several weeks pretending to be a

Polish street child, and then goes into hiding. Although sentenced to die after being caught, he is instead miraculously reunited with his family in the Plaszow labor camp. A year later, father and son become slave laborers in the Gozen 2 camp in Austria, where his father perishes. Close to death himself, Leosz is finally liberated by the American army on May 5th, 1945.
