Curious About Charter School? Education Expert Freda Deskin Answers Your Questions

Dr. Freda Deskin of ASTEC

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — One of the most important — and difficult — decisions a parent has to make is what school their children should attend. Is private school worth the expense? Can they get a good education from the overworked, underpaid teachers at an overcrowded public school? Do you have the necessary initiative and self-discipline to homeschool your child?

There is another option, and it might be the perfect one for your family: Charter schools. Dr. Freda Deskin, the founder, administrator, and CEO of the 20-year-old, ASTEC Charter Schools in Oklahoma City, has all the answers to your questions.

Q: First Things First: What Is a Charter School?

A: Charter schools are public schools that are independently operated by an organization, university, or government agency. Unlike traditional public schools, they have the autonomy to set their own educational objectives, and their standards often exceed those of school districts or even states.

Q: How Many Charter Schools Are There?

A: The United States is home to 7,000 charter schools. They are frequently located in inner-city areas, but suburban and rural charter schools do exist, says Freda Deskin.

Q: Do Families Have to Pay Tuition?

A: No, charter schools are free for students and their families. Most of them are run as non-profit organizations. They receive public funding based on their enrollment numbers, although in many cases they get less funding than traditional public schools.

Q: What Sets Them Apart from Other Schools?

A: Since charter schools are free from the usual constraints and requirements of public school curricula and criteria, many of them have a particular specialty, goal, or demographic. For example, some charter schools are aligned with Montessori principles; others focus on college preparation. There are charter schools that are geared toward gifted and talented students, while some, like ASTEC Charter School, have a strong STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) component. According to Freda Deskin, bilingual instruction is another fairly common characteristic of charters.

Q: Are There Prerequisites or Entrance Exams?

A: No, charter schools are open to all students, and there are no admission requirements. They are considered “schools of choice,” explains Freda Deskin. This means that a student will not be enrolled in a charter school based on where they live, which is usually the organizing principle behind traditional public schools. Instead, the student and their family must opt in and apply to a charter school. If there are more applicants than there is capacity, a random lottery will decide which students get in.

Q: How Can I Find a Charter School That Will Suit My Child?

A: Dr. Freda Deskin advises that you start by searching on the Center for Education Reform’s website. You can also get in touch with your State Department of education to find out about options in your particular area.

Brandy Zwicker Recommends Three Supplements That Every Woman Needs

Brandy Zwicker

10-year registered nurse, Brandy Zwicker, shares three supplements that she recommends to every woman she meets.

BISMARK, ND, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Staying healthy, getting all your nutrients, maintaining a strong immune system. These are all things women think about at one time or another. But where to start? Which nutrients do women really need?

“For one, start with getting your blood work to find out what nutrients are lacking,” said Brandy Zwicker, a registered nurse for 10 years. “But if you can’t wait, I have a few recommendations to get you started.”

“The first two supplements I recommend are calcium and vitamin D,” said Brandy Zwicker. “Vitamin D helps with calcium absorption and plays a significant role in brain and reproductive health. Better calcium absorption meaning stronger bones and thyroid support, which helps regulate the menstrual cycle.”

Iron is another vital supplement for women. For women that often feel fatigued, especially while menstruating, Brandy recommends taking iron for a dramatic improvement.

“Iron provides energy to the body,” said Brandy. “Most women I meet have their lives dramatically improved just by taking this one supplement. It helps wake up the brain and shake off any brain fog or memory trouble. Vegans and vegetarians especially should consider taking this supplement as iron is harder to come by in plant-based diets.”

Some other great supplements that Brandy recommends include maca, magnesium, and probiotics. Maca has been proven to increase energy and libido in women (as well as men.) Magnesium helps regulate muscle function, including the heart muscle. It helps the heart maintain a healthy rhythm, regulate blood pressure, and improves the production of cholesterol. Probiotics are a common supplement that many people benefit from. They help increase gut bacteria to better digest food and make a person more regular.

About Brandy Zwicker

Brandy Zwicker is a Bachelor of Science (BSN) Registered Nurse with ten years of nursing experience. Brandy has five children and enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, camping, and other outdoor fitness opportunities. She enjoys running, spin cycle, yoga, weight training, basketball, and indoor rock climbing.

Chris David Muggler Discusses the Importance of Seeking the Lord

Chris David Muggler Indian Trail

INDIAN TRAIL, NC, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the new year and new decade upon us, multitudes of people are embarking on a journey toward positive change, whether it’s being a better partner or parent, getting healthier, or achieving professional goals. As most successful individuals will tell you, one of the most important keys to achieving your goals, no matter how small or large, is to seek guidance and inspiration. And there is no better advisor than the Almighty. Chris David Muggler knows this well and wishes to enlighten others.

Today, Chris David Muggler is a devout man of God continuously seeking to better understand His word and apply it to his own life in order to be and do better. However, like many, Chris Muggler was not always devout. He explains, “My personal Christian testimony is not my own. It’s another glimpse of God’s grace being brought to another broken sinner through His Holy Spirit. I grew up with interests in Christianity but was swayed away from it. I lived for attention and love but they never seemed to fulfill my desires in totality.”

Temptations and distractions are everywhere and it is understandable that many people, particularly young people, can find it challenging to sit quietly and humbly to truly hear God’s word and take it to heart, much less apply His teachings by living a pious life. Fortunately, Chris David Muggler was persuaded to attend a Campus Outreach meeting in his sophomore year at UNC Charlotte. It was then that he truly opened his heart and received God’s love and enlightenment for the first time. In the weeks and months that followed, he found the fulfillment he had been yearning for and became a changed man.

Chris Muggler now attends the Christ Covenant Church in Matthew, NC. He advises that attending weekly church services and surrounding himself with likeminded people who share his faith, beliefs, and priorities, has been paramount to his continuing journey of self-improvement.

As author Ann Voskamp said, “Too often we want clarity and God wants us to come closer.”

As humans, it is our natural inclination to question, to seek answers. As Chris David Muggler and many others have been blessed to learn, it is God that has those answers. By embracing Him and choosing Him as our leader, we gain not only wisdom but love.

Why is the United Kingdom's productivity so low and what practical steps can be taken to improve it? Guildhawk's CEO gives Government three suggestions.

Just imagine if we could make 99% of UK companies more productive! We can, by supporting business leaders as the Be The Business movement is doing.”

— Jurga Zilinskiene, CEO and Founder Guildhawk

CITY OF LONDON , LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The United Kingdom's productivity has hit a major low and with the country's exit from the European Union looming fast, the need for UK companies to close that gap and boost their national and international trade has never been more pressing.

Privately held companies have a vital role to play in this. This is a major and frequently underestimated sector of the UK economy that has grown by almost 70 per cent in the first two decades of the millennium, and now encompasses just under 6 million companies; accounting for about 99% of all UK business.

In a meeting with the Rt Hon Simon Clarke MP, Exchequer Secretary to the HM Treasury hosted by the Be the Business movement, Jurga Zilinskeine MBE explained how she had used technology innovation and investment in people and systems to make her company Guildhawk a highly productive organisation and what government can do to help leaders like her.

Zilinskiene's follow-up letter to the Minister is available view online.


1. Guildhawk is a privately held global technology enabled translation and language services company founded in 2001.

2. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II honoured Guildhawk with the Queens Award for International Trade and Honoured Ms Zilinskiene with the MBE for International Trade.

3. Guildhawk provides fully project managed services including Lease Abstraction Translation, Technical Translations, Multilingual e-discovery and Cultural Advisory for global brands.

Britains unboxes latest additions to 2020 range

The hero for 2020 is the ‘Farm in a Box’ which will launch in July 2020 and retail for £29.99.

LONDON, UNITED_KINGDOM, January 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Britains is Europe’s oldest specialist in creating in-scale farm models including tractors, implements and accessories. As number one in the market for 1:32 farm replicas in its category, 2020 is set to be a significant year for the brand, adding 19 new items to the range, including two Limited Edition lines which will see the business grow further this year. One of the exciting new offerings has been specifically designed to be an entry point for new farm toy fans and will open new avenues for Britains.

The hero for 2020 is the ‘Farm in a Box’ which will launch in July 2020 and retail for £29.99. The ‘Farm in a Box’ heralds Britains’ entry into the mass market, opening up the brand and introducing farm toys to a whole new audience. The product is the solution to a desire for high quality toys in packaging that provides more than just a plastic casing. Instead, the cardboard box unfolds to reveal a farmyard playset which will entertain young farm fans with hours of imaginative play.

Every element from the packaging is designed and illustrated to transform into a piece of a farmyard set, encouraging new generations to use their imagination to bring the farm to life no matter where they are. The ‘Farm in a Box’ opens up to reveal a cardboard tractor fitment that transforms into a pair of hay bales, a trailer fitment that turns into a grain silo and other elements that double as a cattle feeder, weaning pens, stables, a milking parlour, or a farmhouse with doors that opens.

The designs on the packaging encourage children to colour in the playset and tap into their creativity to create a farm set unique to them. All the parts then fold away, dropping back in the box to safely store the toys. ‘Farm in a Box’ includes the classic and high-quality 1:32 scale model John Deere tractor with front loader, trailer, 3 round bales, a fence, two cows and calves.

For their core audience, Britains are also launching exciting new lines for 2020. The John Deere 8RX 410 (SRP £64.99) and the Case IH 580 track tractor (SRP £54.99) will both be launched as part of the Prestige range, a category for the keen collectors ages 14+. These 1:32 scale replicas are precision items with almost full die-cast models and are ideal for the collectors looking for premium models.

The brand has also expanded its global licensed offering, with the introduction of CLAAS – one of the biggest licensees in the world. The new partnership is expected to be key for 2020 and will see the launch of the CLAAS Xerion 5000 model at the National Ploughing Show in September with detailed features and a rotating cab.

Britains are also launching their Britains at Work models as part of a special JCB range. The products are the first of their style within the range and feature the ‘rusty’ and ‘muddy’ decal. Available from August 2020, the Rusty JCB 3C Mark III model will retail for £29.99 and the Muddy JCB Mini Excavator will retail for £24.99. The new models will attract both the young fans and collectors.

Successful people question if they deserve what they've accomplished – impostor syndrome

Impostor Syndrome often causes people to refrain from seeking out greater opportunities due to their strong belief that they don’t have what it takes to have earned said success.”

— Stevon Lewis, licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

GREENWICH, CT, USA, January 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Candice Georgiadis, owner of the blog by her namesake, interviews individuals on the cutting edge of hotel, travel, lifestyle and other similar topics. She expands the marketing foot print of individuals and companies with a combination of branding and imaging across social media and conventional websites.

Impostor syndrome affects many people and Candice Georgiadis is helping bring real world exposure to this growing problem. Her interviews and subsequent social media exposure are garnering attention to this debilitating mental block. A recent interview with Stevon Lewis, licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, highlights the extent of this syndrome and where it may stem from.

Now let’s shift to the main focus of this interview. We would like to explore and flesh out the experience of Impostor Syndrome. How would you define Impostor Syndrome? What do people with Imposter Syndrome feel?

Impostor Phenomenon is a term coined by Dr. Pauline Clance and is more commonly known as Impostor Syndrome. Individuals that suffer from Impostor Syndrome are usually high achievers in some facet of their life, whether it be in their career, in education, or in the arts. What I have found in working with individuals that struggle with impostorism, is that that they don’t come to therapy indicating feeling like an impostor as their primary presenting problem. Most often they’ll express feelings of not living to their full potential or report a history of self-sabotaging their success. In addition, while Impostor Syndrome isn’t in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fifth Edition (DSM-5), the symptoms usually develop into depression or anxiety, disorders that are diagnosable.

In peeling back the layers I’ve found some glaring commonalities:

· They had a parent(s) that was very critical of them; frequently pointing out where they needed improvement.

· Their parent(s) did not equally provide praise of their accomplishments or achievements, and often dismissed those accolades as routine or required.

· They are often the product of a childhood environment that was dysfunctional, in which they seem to be the only person from their immediate family to have experienced the overall success they have achieved.

· Expressions of love were infrequent or nonexistent.

· As adults they seem to be the “only one” in the room, as in the only person of color or only woman.

· As a result of these experiences they have developed a high level of self-doubt, are dismissive of their own abilities, are overly critical of themselves, neglectful of their needs, and fearful of future failure. For example, someone struggling with Impostor Syndrome might receive an award and say, “Oh, almost everyone got one,” or after getting an ‘A’ in a class, they might respond, “That class was easy!” Other times they may be plagued with intense fear that they are going to “screw things up” as a result of getting a promotion, becoming a parent, approaching marriage, or some other potential increase in responsibility. The complete interview is available here.

Continuing along the same topic, Candice Georgiadis' social media and interview skills furthers the reach of individuals working to shed light on this serious issue. Sandy Slager, President of Skye Learning, and Chief Operating Officer of MindEdge Learning, interviewed by Candice Georgiadis helps bring solutions to people through her social media reach.

In your opinion, what are 5 steps that someone who is experiencing Impostor Syndrome can take to move forward despite feeling like an “Impostor”? Please share a story for each.

Understanding these five statements can help a person begin to take control and reconcile with the effects of imposter syndrome:

1. You’re not superhuman, and you don’t have to be.
Setting reasonable expectations for yourself is, I believe, the first step toward self-acceptance. Anyone would or could feel like an imposter if they set the achievement bar too high to reach.

2. Seek out a mentor and become a mentor for someone else.

Mentoring from someone who knows you can be a huge confidence boost. Listening to what someone says, as they watch you from the outside, is usually very different than how you see yourself.

3. Define success at the beginning, and don’t move the goalposts.

By defining failure and success at the start of a task or project, and by not moving the goalposts you’ve set, you stand a better chance of being pleased with the outcome. This is certainly the foundation of building confidence in yourself and your work. For instance, if you decide at the start of a project that at the one-month mark you should have completed a list of five things, and you accomplish that goal, take a moment and dare to be proud of yourself. Catch the rest of this fascinating interview here.

Another set of great articles by Candice Georgiadis brings Impostor syndrome to the masses with her extensive social media skills.

Excellent reading on the topic here.
