7 self-awareness questions to aid student success

7 self-awareness questions to aid student success

With the 2016-2017 school year upon us, preparing our students to start off strong is a necessity that must not be overlooked. School supplies and school clothes are definitely great but if we neglect to help our students become more self-aware, we'll be making a tragic mistake. Business genius, Gary Vaynerchuk says, "Self-Awareness is the game...when you know yourself, you win". I like to say, "When you know yourself, success is more easily attained. As the father of a 1st grader, 8th grader and 9th grader, I desire for my children to be successful. As the oldest of 7 brothers and sisters, I want my younger siblings to be successful. As a #StudentSuccessCoach of 15 years, it is a need for me to see our students start this year off with more confidence than ever before and be extremely successful.

Join ABC10 for Raley's Food For Families Summer Fresh Drive

Hunger is a reality for one in six Americans. You may think you do not know anyone that is food insecure, but millions are suffering daily.

In California alone, nearly 60% of all public school students are eligible for free or reduced price school meals. That’s 3.5 million low-income kids statewide. The situation amplifies during the summer season when many children who rely on school programs for food go without meals because school is not in session.

Because Raley’s Food For Families program recognizes that no child should go hungry, they have become a main contributor to local food banks. A donation of $1 to Raley’s Food For Families Summer Fresh Drive will help provide fresh produce to hungry families.
