You are an effective teacher. You are a successful teacher. You are a great teacher. You use your own personalized plan to teach students in ways they understand. You teach others using methods and resources that meet their needs. You show others how to do things in simple, easy to follow steps. You amaze, engage, and astound your students. You explain and demonstrate skills to others in effective ways that empower them to learn. You are a great mentor and role model. What you teach and how you teach helps your peers and younger generations. What you teach leaves a lasting impact and helps improve the world where you live now and the world of future generations.

Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.

I am an effective teacher. I am a successful teacher. I am a great teacher. I use my own personalized plan to teach students in ways they understand. I teach others using methods and resources that meet their needs. I show others how to do things in simple, easy to follow steps. I amaze, engage, and astound my students. I explain and demonstrate skills to others in effective ways that empower them to learn. I am a great mentor and role model. What I teach and how I teach helps my peers and younger generations. What I teach leaves a lasting impact and helps improve the world where I live now and the world of future generations.

Thank you, Joan Reid, for writing to suggest that a topic for Say Good Things February might be: You are a great mentor and role model for the younger generation. I incorporated this idea into the affirmations above. 

Your subconscious mind will lead you to make it true. Believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s true. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your teaching skills.

When I was in sixth grade, a woman hired me to plan a party for her niece. I loved teaching them games to play. I still love to do that.  I loved to show children younger than me how to do things I knew how to do…build things with Tinkertoys, Lincoln Logs, or change the size of a roller skate. I knew when I was in high school that I wanted to teach school. I actually thought I’d like to run a day care center. I loved doing fun things with others.

After I taught school a couple of years, I nixed the idea of a day care center. I loved to see the look in someone’s eyes and their body language when they understood something or learned something they never knew or understood before. You know what it feels like to experience an “aha” moment. I loved seeing that realization in the eyes and bodies of students that I taught.

An effective teacher knows how a particular student learns. Some learn by listening. Some by reading it. Others learn by feeling it. She teaches them in their learning mode. I discovered that many times when a student doesn’t understand the concept I was teaching that one of his peers could explain it to him in the lingo of the current generation. Each teacher has to find her own style and way to teach her subject. 

I still love to teach. I taught online workshops with Muse Conference 2012 and 2013.and the Catholic Writers Conference Online in 2012. I taught 3 workshops at the South Carolina Writers Workshop Conference in 2014. I also teach mini-lessons for our critique group. Sometimes my blog posts intention is to teach. Education is a way to amaze, engage, and astound students with knowledge, skills, materials, and inventions.

I like to share funny stories. Here’s a story of when I was teaching third grade. In those days you taught the students by drawing an illustration on the board and numbering vocabulary words from the lesson beside it. That particular day’s lesson was on Insects…one particular insect that I drew was an ant. I meticulously drew its parts on the board. Labeled the parts. I was ready for teaching my absolutely wonderful lesson.

“Boys and girls, today we’re going to learn about insects. An ant is an insect. How many legs does an insect have?”

I called on students who raised their hands. One student answered, “Twelve.” Another student answered, “Twelve.” I called on a boy at the back of the room and his answer was “Twelve.” 

A little frustrated that I wasn’t getting the response I expected, I turned and pointed to the chalkboard and asked, “How many legs does the ant on the board have?” 

When I looked at the board, my eyes got as big as the moon. I suddenly realized why I got the answer, “Twelve.”

“Oopsy, boys and girls. It looks like I drew too many legs on our ant.”

The children watched as I erased three legs on one side and three legs on the other side. Then I asked, “How many legs does this ant have now?”

Of course, they all answered, “Six.” 

How many legs does an insect have? “Six.”

And the rest of the lesson continued without any erroneous information about ants and insects. I’m sure those students never forgot how many legs an ant has nor my lesson.

Am I a perfect teacher? “No.”

Am I an effective teacher. “Yes.”

I hope that you find that using affirmations gives you a stronger belief in you, your skills, abilities, and positive experiences. Thanks for reading my blog. I hope you’ll share with others. Free to ask questions and tell me your ideas in the comment area. I’d love to hear from you!

You Have an Awesome Sense of Humor


Awsome sense of humor“You Have an Awesome Sense of Humor” by Joan Y. Edwards

This is Day 9 of Say Good Things February.

Say Good Things150 pixels

 

 

 

You have an awesome sense of humor. You see the funny side of things. You tell jokes well. You accept yourself as you are. You help others relax because you accept them as they are. You explain things in a way that lightens the spirits of others so that they can laugh about things close to their hearts. You are sensitive to the feelings of others. You perceive comical things and situations. You are able to laugh at yourself. You make certain that you laugh with others, not at them. You are witty. You laugh easily and often.

Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.

I have an awesome sense of humor. I see the funny side of things. I tell jokes well. I accept yourself as I am. I help others relax around me because I accept them as they are. I explain things in a way that lightens the spirits of others so that they laugh about things close to their hearts. I am sensitive to the feelings of others. I perceive comical things and situations. I laugh at myself. I make certain that I laugh with others, not at them. I am witty. I laugh easily and often.

Your subconscious mind will lead you to make it true. Believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s true. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your sense of humor.

I haven’t perfected these items either but I enjoy being able to break things down into simple steps that make it easy for others to understand. 

I haven’t always had a sense of humor about myself and my imperfections. I hate it when I make a mistake and can’t laugh about it. Usually it takes time passing and a friend giving me a different way of looking at it to let go and laugh and then make plans on how to keep this particular situation from happening again.

What helped give me a sense of humor? A year in my life as a young adult gave me the acceptance as a professional typist and a person that enabled me to be able to laugh at myself.

Feel free to laugh with me. Here’s what happened.

In 1959 I worked at the Pentagon for almost a year in the DCSLOG Division of the Army. It was this branch of the army that kept track of the total numbers of items that it owned…trucks, flour, sugar, uniforms, tanks, etc.

Lt. Col. Solossi was my boss. He called me “Ginger.” In his words, “You aren’t sweet enough to call you “Sugar” and you’re not sour enough to call you a Lemon. You’re a little spicy, so I’m going to call you, “Ginger.”

One particular day it was my job to type speeches for the full Colonel who might be over the DSCLOG Division. I typed it and went to lunch. Upon my return, Lt. Col. Solossi called me into his office. Here’s the dialogue:

“Ginger, did you proof-read the Colonel’s speech.”

“Oh, yes sir, I did. I read it over really good.” I put my hand in my lap and looked for his response.

“Ginger, did you have someone proof read the Colonel’s speech with you?”

‘No, sir.” At this point, I figured I was in big trouble. Something must have been wrong with the speech I typed. I hung my head.

Lt. Col. Solossi said, “In the future, I want you to have Ruth proof read your work.”

Lt. Col. Solossi looked at me. Then he took the speech in his hands. “The Colonel practiced his speech. This is how he said it went. “In order to obtain, in order to obtain, in order to obtain, to obtain.”

The Colonel laughed and laughed, then he said, “What the heck is this? Some kind of song?” Then he brought the speech to me.”

“Oh, no! Give it to me. I’ll retype it.”

Ruth has already retyped it.

I said, “I’ll be more careful next time. I’ll have Ruth to proofread everything with me. Thank you.

Lt. Col. Solossi said, “I know you will, Ginger.”

It was so great that the Colonel didn’t ask for me to be fired. He had a sense of humor and laughed about it. Lt. Col. Solossi didn’t fire me. He gave me a plan to carry out improvement. What was so vitally important was that they accepted me in spite of my error. That was very honoring and filled me with joy. It also was the beginning of my ability to laugh at myself.

My grandmother Meyer (Mother Meyer) had a wonderful sense of humor. She laughed when she spray painted her new coat “red” when she used spray paint instead of spray perfume.

My grandfather Bruffey (PaPa) could make you laugh. He would draw cute little drawings and take your picture and send the picture to you with  your name like “Franny, who lights up the world…or Jenny Gal, whose beauty would make a bulldog break his chain.” He gave people unique names. He called a teenage boy who was very tall, “High Pockets.”

A sense of humor is a trait to treasure. It will add years to your life and give joy to you and others around you. Celebrate you and your sense of humor.

When You Speak, People Listen


When you speak, people listen

“When You Speak, People Listen” by Joan Y. Edwards

This is Day 8 of Say Good Things February.

Say Good Things150 pixels

 

 

 

When you speak, people listen. You are an eloquent speaker. You talk fluently. You are very persuasive. You talk using words that are easy to understand. You talk to people on their level and treat them with respect. You speak clearly. The words that come from your mouth are powerful. You explain things well. You pack the words you say with meaning. You are articulate, expressive, and silver-tongued. You tell facts in an interesting manner. You motivate and inspire others with your words.

Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.

I hated it when I was growing up when teachers, preachers, or anyone talking to me and others talked to you like “You are a nobody.” So I have tried during my life to speak to everyone with respect. 

At one time in my life, I thought no one was listening to me. Therefore, I used this affirmation consistently for over a year: “When I talk, people listen.” It’s interesting how things changed. When I changed my belief, I changed my circumstances and experiences. 

If there’s a skill you’d like for me to write affirmation statements to help you integrate them into your life, let me know in the comment area or send me an email…joanyedwards1@gmail.com. 

I hope that using these affirmations or others you create to help you have a stronger belief in your skills, abilities, and positive experiences. Thanks for reading my blog.

You Are a Great Organizer


You are a great organizer2

“You Are a Great Organizer” by Joan Y. Edwards

This is Day 7 of “Say Good Things February.”

Say Good Things - February

You are a great organizer. You put furniture, belongings, and necessities into an orderly, functional, and coherent structure. In your home and office, you have a place for everything and everything is in its place. You give away clothing that doesn’t fit and household items that aren’t used to the needy. You keep papers orderly. If you can’t repair things yourself, you hire a skilled person to do it for you. You recycle as many items as you can to keep things out of the landfill. You get as many things ready the night before so that the next day runs smoother and isn’t overwhelming. You break down large tasks that take a long time into small steps so that you get them done ahead of time or on time. 

Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.

I break down large tasks that take a long time into small steps so that I get them done ahead of time or on time. 

I discovered after I kept saying these things over and over again for days, weeks, months, and years, they became true because of actions I took. I need a stronger belief in these statements. They aren’t all true, yet. But, I work diligently every year to encourage my husband and me to downsize items we don’t use. The fact that we love books and like to reread the self-help ones leaves me with an abundance of books to store in my house.

It seems that the words others told me when I was a child are still alive and what others told me as an adult. My advice is keep working on it. Your organizational skills and my organizational skills will improve with education, tackling the problem, and believing in ourselves. Love yourself. Love your organizational skills.

I put three resources that have great ideas for being organized. I hope they help you. I found a few to help me.

  1. Addicted to Success. 10 Ways To Be A Super Effective Organizer
  2. Stewart Acuff. 18 Essential Qualities that Every Organizer Must Have.

Your subconscious mind will lead you to make it true. Believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s true. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your organizing skills.

You Are a Great Illustrator


You are a great illustrator

“You Are a Great Illustrator” by Joan Y. Edwards

This is Day 6 of “Say Good Things February.”

Say Good Things - February

You are a great illustrator. You are a good artist. You draw anything you see in person, in a picture, or imagine in your mind. You create intriguing characters, cartoons, props, scenery, backgrounds, and special effects that are effective in increasing the depth of meaning of the book or magazine and entice thousands of people to read and buy it.

Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.

Your subconscious mind will lead you to make it true. You have to believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s true. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your illustrating skills.

An illustrator is an artist with a mission to help show the meaning of an author’s story. To illustrate means to furnish (a book, magazine, etc.) with drawings, pictures, or other artwork intended for explanation, elucidation, or adornment.

What is an artist? An artist is a person who draws, paints, or sculpts as a profession or a hobby. Synonyms are: designer, creator, originator, and old master.

What’s the difference between an artist and an illustrator?
http://study.com/articles/Artist_vs_Illustrator_Whats_the_Difference.html

Education and experience are important parts of skill-building and improvement in your illustration skills.

I have found that the books I find captivating do the illustrations from a different point of view than the usual ones. Find your style as an artist/illustrator.

If you’re both a writer and illustrator, you’re in luck because many publishers like this combination of talents.

Take a chance on you. Draw every day to build your skills. I’ve got to set my mind to doing that. I’ve been focusing on my writing while the editor from 4RV Publishing and I were revising Joan’s Elder Care Guide. Now I’m working on the illustrations for Larry, the Terrifying Turkey, a chapter book slightly based on a true experience.

Check out the books with prize-winning illustrations, such as the Caldecott/Honors Books
http://www.ala.org/alsc/awardsgrants/bookmedia/caldecottmedal/caldecotthonors/caldecottmedal

If you are illustrating picture books or chapter books, you might want to join Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). They have oodles of resources for illustrators and give workshops to help them, too.

You Are a Great Writer

“You Are a Great Writer” by Joan Y. Edwards

This is Day 5 Say Good Things February.

Say Good Things150 pixels

 

You are a great writer. You are a good storyteller. Your stories keep the interest of readers from the beginning through the middle to the end. Your story endings are satisfying. Your characters are flawed people with inner problems reflected in their big outer problems that can’t be solved until something changes. Your stories are published. Once published your stories are best-selling books.

Your subconscious mind will lead you to make it true. You have to believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s true. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your writing skills.

Publication needs a few explanations. Publication can mean published on a blog or newsletter.

Publication can mean an eBook, a paperback book, or a hardback book.

Publication can be self-published meaning that you pay for the printing and distribution of your books. I self-published Flip Flap Floodle in 2004 to show a belief in me and my writing. I had tried for 31 years to get the book published without success. When I retired, I promised myself that I would submit Flip Flap Floodle to traditional publishers for 5 more years. If no one accepted it for publication, I would self-publish it. I self-published Flip Flap Floodle in 2004. Lucky for me they had just started self-publishing in color. It is available on Amazon. To purchase, click here.Flip Flap Floodle cover 300 res 300x420 pixels

Many times bookstores won’t buy your self-published book to put on its shelves. However, a book store may be willing to order a book for a customer when a customer knows the correct ISBN number of the book. If the author lives in the same area as the book store, the owners may allow the author to leave books to be sold on consignment of in my experience, that is for 45% off the retail price of the book.

Publication can be through a hybrid publisher who has you pay someone (not them) to edit your book, does the cover for you, but does not do picture book illustrations. Or any combination thereof. This publisher may not allow book returns. Therefore, bookstores may not put the books on their shelves.

When I submitted Larry, the Terrifying Turkey to Ravenswood Publishing and signed the contract with them, they were doing picture books. But they dropped picture books from their imprints. The owner said since I was doing my own illustrations for the Chapter Book, she would publish it under the Ravenswood imprint. I am presently working on the illustrations for this book. This is a draft copy of the cover. I hope to finish them so they can be printed by June 2016.

Publication can be through a traditional publisher who pays for the editing, cover, illustrations, ISBN numbers, and distribution through channels. Bookstores will take the books from these traditional publishers if they allow book returns.

Joan’s Elder Care Guide is with a traditional publisher, 4RV Publishing, LLC. The Non-Fiction Imprint Editor is looking at the complete edited version now. This beautiful cover was created by Aidana WillowRaven, 4RV Publishing. Hopefully, it will be printed before June 2016.

I haven’t accomplished all of my writing goals and affirmations, but I’m on the way. I have accomplished part of them. I’m human. Like you my belief in myself may waver a little. It’s okay. We’ll still get there.

Believe in you and your writing. Write. Revise. Get your work critiqued. Revise. Submit. Be a Pub Subber.

You Are Creative.


You are creative

 

“You Are Creative” by Joan Y. Edwards

This is Day 4 of Say Good Things February

Say Good Things - February

You are creative. You are innovative. You are inventive. You are ingenious. You are clever. You are inspiring. You are original. You are leading-edge. You are productive. You are gifted.

Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.

I am creative. I am innovative. I am inventive. I am ingenious. I am clever. I am inspiring. I am original. I am leading-edge. I am productive. I am gifted.

I discovered after I kept saying these things over and over again for days, weeks, and months, they became true because of actions I took.

Your subconscious mind will lead you to make it true. You have to believe it’s possible. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your creative skills.

One of my first years of teaching, a principal said that I wasn’t creative. I’d always felt like I was creative. Luckily, this seed of destruction didn’t stop me from believing I was creative and being creative.

Many problems in relationships come when people demand that others do things in exactly the same order and manner in which they do them.

Here’s a scenario:

Fixing a load of clothes and putting in the detergent and rinse.

Person A: demands that you put the water in, then the detergent, then put the rinse in the little opening for it , then add clothes. Person A feels, if you don’t do it this way, you’re doing it WRONG.

Person B: demands that you put in the clothes, start the water, add the detergent after it’s almost full,  and put the rinse in the container. Person B feels, if you don’t do it this way, you’re doing it WRONG.

It does seem silly to get angry because someone doesn’t follow A or B. As long as the detergent has water, it’ll spread throughout the washer. Insert the rinse before the rinse cycle and you’re good. However, sometimes we’ve never known anyone to do it in a different way. Our family’s always done it this way.

Being creative sometimes means we don’t always follow the same paths that others usually take.

As long as the job gets done, be open to letting those who are doing it, do it their way. Accept yourself as you are and accept others as they are.

If you’re working for a company who demands things be done in a certain way, be sure and ask the authorities before you change it. Like individuals, some companies reward creative thinking and others like to keep on doing it their way. It’s all a choice. There’s a saying: “When you’re in Rome, do as the Roman’s do.”

Many of our inventors believed that something different would work better. They said, “Yes, this is true. But what if…” They came up with awesome ideas and inventions that amaze the people who said, “There’s no way that’s going to work”

That’s where the creative part of you takes over and makes the world a better place.
