No Time For Change

Do this.

Do that.

Constant Haste.

No time to waste.


This is serious!

No time for play.

No time to fail and try again.

Is there enough time to learn?


Little time to talk

To all those we should.

We’d all learn together.

We could do more good.


What’s the hurry?

Why the rush?

What if we changed,

Had all the time, rearranged?


There’s rhetoric

And beautiful words.

Visions of the future

Painted with broad brush strokes.


Dreams of beauty,

Beautiful dreams too.

They live in our mind-

Defined, refined, enshrined.


We keep dreaming…

Saying beautiful words…

Call ourselves believers,

Game-changers, leaders…


We call ourselves connected.

Another follower collected.

The truth of the present neglected.

Reality distorted, from it disconnected.


We put words on slides,

Send them into ether.

Aspire and inspire

Till our wills expire.


The emergence of divergence!

We shout out on the screen.

To all those who’ll look, but…

When it counts - will we intervene?



Challenge to All Educators:

1. Ask yourself and be honest with yourself - Do I do enough? Do I affect change or use beautiful words to talk about it?

2. Act Accordingly...


Thanks for reading! Check me out on BAm! or my Blog.


Remember: You have the power. Use it often.

I founded Focus 2 Achieve to provide innovative classroom tools that empower teachers and help students achieve more success. In my first life, I am a husband, a father, and a teacher. In my second life, I spend time discovering what "really works" aka "best practices" in education, problem-solving, and creating products for teachers and students. I recently wrote a book titled "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom." It is a book designed for Students that uses brain research and brain based learning strategies to help student become better learners. The book can be used by Teachers to help students learn more effectively, and Parents to help their children become more aware of how they learn. 


I have a BS in Earth and Environmental Sciences and an MA in Teaching. I teach high school Chemistry and Principles of Engineering and my professional interests focus on discovering and learning how the human mind learns and acquires lasting knowledge and skills, so that I can help my (and other) students learn more effectively and achieve greater academic success.


I am also a fan of the Jedi order (and use DA FORCE frequently), ninjas (both masked and unmasked), and the superhero in all of us. Oh, and I am on a Quest to Change the World, because I can. I believe we all can.
