Purpose Unveiled

Today,

I wanted to give up on education; I wanted to throw the towel in.  I felt weak and emotional with so many little faces staring at me; I wanted to break down.  How do I explain to my students that politics has valued their education as test scores?  How do I explain to them how politics has made it almost impossible to truly teach beyond the classroom? but then something begin to stir in my heart and in my spirit.

You are here ‘on purpose’, not by chance, not by coincidence.  You are Purpose! You are the why.  I will not stop until we take the bondage and chains that have been placed around the one thing that will make our children stronger, the one thing that can empower us. That is KNOWLEDGE.

My calling is being used for a greater purpose. I will be a light in the face of darkness. I will represent hope and not fear.  I will break those chains that have tried to keep our beautiful minds from evolving and showing the hidden truths of the world. I am an EDUCATOR. My strength is not in numbers, but comes from a source, The SOURCE, that is greater. Rise beyond defeat. God is calling us to take back what is his and rightfully our own. My purpose has been unveiled.

You are not here on accident as an educator; our passion is unmatched. Teaching is a gift, but REACHING is our masses. Use your light. I AM & I WILL.

Greetings: My name is Andrea S. Pickens; I have several years of experience in education and youth development all of which include teaching and leading youth in under-resourced and economically disadvantaged communities. I believe that it is critical to the academic and over success of our youth to have proper academic and social-emotional support. This support is often found in schools and after-school programs that intervene by providing tutoring/enrichment services and are equipped with effective teachers and leaders. My belief is that each child can learn, but not all children learn the same; diversity and equity is crucial to youth development. It is my mission as an educator, entrepreneur, and servant-leader to equip and empower others in youth development and education to reach our youth beyond the secondary classroom. Yours in Education, Andrea S. Pickens, M.Ed
