Here is the list of people running for school board in Cudahy.   I received this information via my email request to the school district.   I still cannot find this information in the paper yet. 

Hopefully these candidates (especially the new ones) will make their voices heard.  We want to hear them.

Does Your Child Make Mistakes at School? I Hope So.

Here is a common experience I went through in grade school, high school, college, and even now in my day-to-day events.  This is a common human experience that should be a regular part of every person's life.

There is a task, such as understanding a concept (simple fractions, for example).

  1.  A teacher teaches me the concept.  I look at the concept.  I think.  I try.  I don't quite understand.
  2. I walk away and, depending on the difficulty of what is being taught, I might complain, curse, tell myself that the concept is way beyond my reach.
  3. I try again.  Again, I still don't fully understand.
  4. I try harder.  I turn my head sideways.  I close my eyes and walk away again.  I may struggle and curse even louder.   I come back and if necessary, I ask questions.   I focus.
  5. I understand.  Ahh, I get it.
  6. It feels great!

Does your child, at any point, go through a similar experience at their school?  I hope so.
