Thank You 

 if you have already purchased from one of  my other marketing sites or you purchased from here! !           If interested. you can learn more about SAUCE by Dr. Mapp in this Schooling Solutions LLC website.            Read on to learn more about other ways I can help support you and your family or other school stakeholders!


Are you searching for next steps during and after this strange period - 

 without having to figure it all out by yourself?    

We can help You and your Family move towards Learning for Peace and Healing!  

                                  You've come to the right site if you seek timely information 

about connections among what's in the news and our nation's - and your families' pasts

 

Life has definitely changed for school stakeholders, everybody else, our nation and our world!  Making it to graduation is harder to envision with the many uncertainties around the multiple 2020 worldwide pandemics of covid-19, racial injustice, severe weather conditions, inequities in remote learning and many other areas,  and democracy-hurting action​s!  School stakeholders are individuals and groups with direct interests, involvements, concerns or investments in schooling and education. They include children and their families, faculties and staffs in education institutions (child care, P-12 and higher education), government officials and workers and community advocates who support children and families. 


 All school stakeholders need to upgrade their skills, competencies and attitudes for today's world.  Trying to return to pre-pandemic behaviors should not be what families nor schools seek if things weren't the best for children.  We overlooked a lot of problem areas, but since reminders of those areas are everywhere, it's now time to deal with them.  This period is sort of like  pulling a scab off a sore before it's healed underneath.  We are in the second decade of the 21st century but pre-pandemic actions and behaviors were more like those from mid century.  Schooling Solutions is ready to help you grow and develop for an improved post-pandemic period with more positive outcomes! 


What you may need during this period:  You may be grandparents or other relatives who've had to step in due to loved ones dying or unable to care for their children during this period.  Or you may have made it to graduation as Millennials and Gen Z and are searching for next step directions as you retool yourselves - or first tool yourselves - for learning how to resolve the many problems earlier generations are leaving to your generations.  You're planning your lives to earn enough for financial security in a changing work environment.  Additional training and education beyond high school are needed for young folk but also for older generations raising children who may have to change their skill sets.   


The 21st century has brought changes, and continuous learning is required to keep up with those changes - especially during this period after the start of the 2020 pandemics.  We all have to learn continuously to keep up with the times, and we have to learn how to live more peacefully with our families and other cultures.  All ages need to use critical thinking and learning skills to develop and hone more positive behaviors, skills and attitudes. These areas are needed for living successfully in a rapidly shrinking world that will be different in some ways, but hopefully better in others. 


All of the above challenges plus opportunities for improvements are noted in two books emphasized in the SAUCE Series: 

1. Making Sense of Today: How to Connect for a Better Tomorrow and 

2) How to Prepare Our Children for Their World: Clues from Birth thru Graduation (a Spiral-bound Journal and Book are also offered for deeper work for families with this book).  All books can be purchased at this site (see above).

NOW - back to why you may need to add A LITTLE SAUCE to your lives:  

 Sauce adds a little something extra to improve the flavor of food. 

Here S.A.U.C.E. brings seldom-discussed, yet connected, topics to the forefront 

to gain different ways of viewing problems so you can have improved results.  

Adding S.A.U.C.E. can improve the flavor of whatever you seek.  


DO  ANY  OF  THESE  SOUND  FAMIL​IAR?  ​    Help!

 I’m stressed with teaching my children when I know there’s more than just technology and on the surface understandings that I need to learn to help my children learn “deeper.” Plus I need to understand what 21st century changes really are!  

 We want more family learning projects so both children and adults in my family can heal from today’s pandemics and negativity while learning more about our family and nation.

 I’m almost ready to graduate – or need to retool my skills for different work - but feel I don’t know enough about life connections that help me make sense of the topics related to the multiple 2020 pandemics and possible future work.


READY TO IMAGINE  A DIFFERENT SCENARIO with the Addition of SAUCE? 

 I understand more about 21st century changes and feel more confident about continually learning to keep up with change - along with attitude changes - and I can help my children do the same! 

 I now understand connections between national history, our family stories and why we need to shift some understandings and our actions to improve our nation’s democracy.

 I now feel more confident that I can be part of the change that’s needed for the future of individuals, families and our nation -  and can pass it on to my future family.


HOW DOES DR. MAPP  KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN? 

I’ve been where you are! I had to change to transform myself to keep up and be successful during changing times. Through my life, education and work experiences I learned to support others so they became empowered to transform themselves. As an entrepreneur I consult with groups and coach individuals to become the change they seek, and my books and remote webinars extend this support today.  Schooling Solutions has what you need while working through and after the pandemics. 

 

WHAT'S MAKING TODAY SO DIFFERENT?  OR IS IT MORE OF THE SAME?  

Many people forget that families are not just collections of related adults and children. They are a nation's smallest social units and important to society's survival and functioning. The family is a social institution that provides rules about how to live in society through social behaviors, expectations and societal roles. 


Society constantly shows that it's unstable, but this period brings in-your-face views of this ​instability on many media screens. Instabilities in our nation began in March 2020 with various actions around the world with fears about the unknown disease that's killing too many but is not taken seriously by all.  That instability escalated to include dormant and new problems in our families and our nation that include

  1. demonstrations against racism and racial injustice (with little understanding by too many Americans of what racism really is,  the history of US policing, etc.);
  2. home uncertainties with more stressed out parents dealing with work or no work, meeting family needs and remote learning at home (that's inconsistent across schools with too much or little homework, with slow working internet that's taxed by some adults working on the same devices, harsh actions by schools at times tho they are guests in children's homes, going outside the home to work with fears of bringing the virus home, etc.);
  3. economic inequities with little money to meet needs and access to nutritious foods, shelter, and other necessities (pay for work has been an ongoing problem for centuries and we're still urged to buy to support capitalism); 
  4. harsh and divided personal and political relationships (across the nation and eve​n in the same families); and
  5. severe weather conditions caused by people activities, poor decisions and pollution that hurts the Earth and hurts humans, too! 

Our children are viewing all of these actions with few understandings, and some adults are the same.  Our children need to be nurtured and protected - but they also need to be taught to be capable of dealing with the above since they will inherit these same problems in a society that is slow to change. Children need to be protected with family love and well-being, wellness and financial security. But cracks are occurring in these protections all over the nation, no matter children's races or family economic levels, so changes for the better are needed.


Who is Dr. Mapp and How Can Her Experiences Help Me and My Family?  

Dr. Mapp's Background. As a child in a large low income southern family with civil rights activist parents and farmer grandparents, I had to find my way in growing up during a tumultuous period - but we knew we were loved with faith that sustained us! I attended good all Black schools and was supposed to have been lynched in the 4th grade. We were taught to be “twice as good as” with deeper learning, so I was academically prepared in the 11th grade when 4 classmates and I desegregated the home of the rebels. I attended a predominantly white university and participated in the Black ​Power movement. Because most schools were desegregated by then, I felt the need to go through a conscious metamorphosis to change how I felt about teaching and working with White people. I also vowed to serve as a change agent in future positions to help others change for the good of all students.


My husband and I had five children, four sons and one daughter, and we planned their education and sacrificed financially so they could all attend a Montessori school from the age of 3. We were vegetarians for awhile who worked on family projects together, participated in family and community life, taught our children to love people over things and to critically think about learning and life.  I volunteered for years in the community to inform my work and I still remember many of my students and their parents who taught me so much! More importantly than my career and education, I parented my five children to engineering degrees (1 daughter with a PhD and 4 sons with MBA, MS and 2 BS's) while it took me 13 years to earn my doctorate. I am a proud GrandMaMa to seven amazing grandchildren whose parents are their Best Teachers! My oldest granddaughter is a college graduate who is teaching in a program for two years prior to returning to work on advanced degrees.  


With five children as a single parent for some years and as a middle school teacher I had to constantly research information to help me be a better parent and professional. As a social studies teacher-leader of low income, predominantly Black students I used evidence-based research to better help my students excel academically while learning life skills. I later thought about my children and students as I wrote, trying to include their needs and what I could to make life easier for them. One of my students years later told me - "I wish I had done as you suggested - my life would have been so much easier!"  And years later, a young man told me at a New Jersey conference that I needed to share what I knew. That became the impetus for my writing.  I want it to be useful.


I used my research and experiences as a district curriculum coordinator and equity council member who helped write a school board adopted Multicultural Education Plan in 1998  and a violence prevention community program. With the changes during that period, those plans were probably not used. My next job was director of an HBCU first year counseling unit. I began and ended my work career in community agencies as a career counselor and later a short stint as director of a youth and family program. When I was later laid off three times in three years, with jobs being hard to get, I had to retool my skills and started my own business. There were a lot of tough years, but what I went through was nothing compared to the experiences that my parents and earlier generations - and many of you - went through all over the country.


My life experiences and research helped me to understand that teaching, learning, schooling and our families are linked and impacted by historical, political and social forces. This requires a holistic approach which acknowledges connections on different levels that bring to the forefront usually unspoken topics that have to be uncovered so we act to and behave in ways that improve our connected lives. My S.A.U.C.E; series of books show these connections on different levels with past, present and future actions  that readers can take to gain different perspectives to improve all our lives on many levels.

 Services and Products We Offer   

We help you identify and clarify barriers and disconnects to form solutions in your school and home through our consulting services, coaching and products. See the resources and services we offer above and on the  Products page.  All school stakeholders (students and their families, and others with interests and involvement in education) have to change so they can find solutions to today's complex problems that began centuries ago.  

In schools, teacher performance is key to student learning in classrooms. This means that the performances of all school stakeholders, including school and district staffs and faculties, have to evolve and change so they can better support teachers and students in their classroom interactions.

Many of us sometimes forget that families are important as society's smallest social unit which rears children who attend schools and will eventually work to support our nation. At home, many changes may need to occur so parents and families can better prepare, love and support their children to become capable and feel cared for as they are prepared for school, living and work.  The pandemics taught us that nothing should be taken for granted, and we all have to do better!

In the community, advocates, initiatives and organizations that support children and families also have to evolve and change. This includes 2020s calls for police, social work, university and others educating new recruits who need to know our true history wile updating institutions so they are more inclusive.  This knowledge needs to be woven into  local and national reform and transformation efforts on many levels  so services can be offered that meet the needs of life today.   The SAUCE Series  is also for advocates and initiatives to use as conversation starters with youth, and for educators needing more information to assist students and their families.
