  • You know you are supposed to be helping people learn, you are just unsure of the what why and howYou want something to help you seem like you know what you are doing even if you don’t You want to be Hip, Cool, Fly, Dope, Swagged OutGive up on chasing the latest fad, be your self and honest with who you are and who you are helping, teens especially respect if you have knowledge and do not force it upon them but let them explore on their own
  • You are in charge of the momentYou know what is important and knowing that is more critical than knowing the latest fadWe don’t have room or time for lollygaggers, get with the program "The illiterate of the 21c won't be those who can't read and write, but those who can't learn, unlearn and relearn." - Alvin Toffler
  • Did you know all of these things? Do you know which of these things is not accurate now?You need to understand where we were way back when in the old days of 2008You need to see what is happening around you now – what people want and what they think they wantYou need to be able to glimpse into the potential future and plan for how you will live in it

  • Again are we giving them a fish or showing them how to find what they needRemember by showing them HOW to they will come back to you because you showed them one thing, now they have expectations
  • You are being asked all sorts of questions, we just have to roll with the changes and make it up as we goeReader devices, laptops, tablets etcHelping with a camera, does your branch have a digital camera?Helping with project, parents and teachers still like books even if the child doesn’tRecommend the book on CD for them to listen to while the cruise FB
  • Once you show your talent it will attract attention
  • Start at 9:30 First two sections from 9:30 to 1115 minute break – stand upThird and Fourth sections from 11:15 to 12:30
