The Hot Chick Politic Show | Basic Human Connection

New Sacramento podcast "The Hot Chick Politic Show." HCP delivers informed conversations about society, charity, education, and small business. One of our mantras is "think globally, but act locally." We believe, here at HCP, that by getting familiar with the people associated with these categories (the doers) we can grow a more compassionate society. We would love to see voter turn out grow with every election, and for America to become a voting culture. Now, we have all heard the history about winning the right to vote, but less than half of all Americans actually vote. We can do this. Please take a minute to check out The Hot Chick Politic Show and listen for yourself ☺

The Hot Chick Politic Show | Your Weekly Dose of Basic Human Connection

Hello Friends,

 

Today we are getting to know Shelley.  She is a 3rd grade teacher.  She shares her perspective on common core.  She opens up about how students, teachers, and parents are adapting to the new teaching standards.

 

Shelley has a lifelong passion for giving back to the community and really possesses a passion for education.  She is deeply rooted to her community and genuinely cares about each student and giving them tools to help solve problems in society.

 

Common Core, she believes will give each student in America the tools they need to think critically and outside of the box.   As a brand new teaching standard, Common Core implementation is uncharted territory for everyone involved. 

 

Communication, patience, and getting informed will help us all make this transition successful.

 

Thank You,

 

Tami Diane

Hello Friends,

 

Welcome back to HCP podcast.  We cover quite a bit in the next half an hour or so.

 

Today we are having a conversation with Amber Farman.  Amber is a mother of four, author, blogger, humanitarian, and cancer survivor. 

Her story is inspirational and her new book, Farwell My Loves, comes out this week.  We talk all about the book.  We also have a super interesting discussion about her humanitarian project.

 

Families for Humanity is a non-profit organization focused on helping orphans, children, and families in one of the poorest areas of the world.  We talk about the orphan issue, in Guatemala, from first hand experience. 

So tuck in and come along with us today and hopefully you’ll hear something new.

Learn more about Amber on her website amberfarman.com 

Thank You,

 

Tami Diane

Hello Friends,

The boys from the band, No Where But Up, join us in the studio to bring us along on their musical journey.

 

Westley and Nick are in studio talking about it all; their deep connection to creating and performing, to the lighter and sillier sides of their friendship.  I think we even talk about the weather at one point ;)

 

It is my pleasure to introduce them on our podcast as our official house band.  Westley, Nick, Gentry, and Joey, thank you for lending us your music.

 

Go to nowherebutup.squarespace.com to get free music downloads from the band!

 

Ciao Ciao,

 

Tami Diane

Hello Friends,

This week we get to know Alice.  She has earned her Masters of Education w/ an emphasis in Best Practices.  Currently, she teaches 4th grade at a Title One school.  

She opens up about unconditional love, routine, involvement, communication, and what she thinks needs to change. Please enjoy this perspective from the 'frontlines' of our educational system.

Happy Sunday,

Tami Diane  

 

Title I Schools- Defined

Schools where at least 40 percent of the children in the school attendance area are from low-income families or at least 40 percent of the student enrollment are from low-income families are eligible to receive federal Title I funds. The proportion of low-income families is most frequently measured by the percent of students receiving free and reduced-price lunch. Title I funds are to be used for programs designed to improve the academic achievement of children from low-income homes. Over half of all public schools receive funding under Title I. No Child Left Behind requires all districts and schools receiving Title I funds to meet state "adequate yearly progress" (AYP) goals for their total student populations and for specified demographic subgroups. If a school receiving federal Title I funding fails to meet the AYP target for two consecutive years or more, the school is designated in need of improvement and faces consequences, including public school choice for students in the school, supplemental services (including tutoring) for students, certain corrective actions and school restructuring.
