Dear AMP! supporters!
Congrats to Happy, Anne, and it looks like... Arturo!
Thank you to all of you for being such a dynamic part of this world these past few months! Congratulations to ALL of us for giving Denver something to focus upon BESIDES GLOOM! I expect each of you to join me in continuing to improve EVERY school... because Josie and I BELIEVE that you do really care about what happens to our kids.
Personal loss and struggles continue to dominate more than just our education system. I want you to know that Joe, Josie, and I are here for you if you need to talk, move your body,... or sing! If you need another LOVE TAG, let me know!
So far...10,000 Denver people said in 2011 "I BELIEVE in Art, Music, and Physical Fitness! THE AIR IS HUMMING... CAUSE SOMETHING GREAT IS COMING!... Who knows... Could be? ... YES it could... Something's coming, something GOOD... IF I CAN WAIT!
My clinic number is 303-744-7676. My cell (which is out of minutes until tomorrow) is 303-725-7482. Feel free to call me/e-mail me with your concerns/praise for education. It's time to mobilize Denver around its neighborhood schools... JOIN ME as we continue to help our elected officials succeed!
Who's ready to Hokey Pokey with me???
En Salud y Paz,
There's gotta be SHUMWAY to fix this!
There's gotta be SHUMWAY to keep Art, Music and Physical Fitness in every neighborhood school!
There's gotta be SHUMWAY to convince folks that the research REALLY does show that science. math, technology, language arts, and civics are ALL learned best when you AMP! the Brain!
There's gotta be SHUMWAY to mobilize the community to get behind the efforts to improve each and every school!
There's gotta be SHUMWAY to promote healthy learning AND show fiscal responsibility that benefits the kids AND their teachers and principals.
I ran for the DPSchool Board At-Large position because research shows that children educated in the arts - visual, musical, and physical - learn better overall.
I teach Tai Chi and the Scholar Warrior Approach to balancing ourselves through fiscal and physical responsibility... so we can balance our society. I believe that formerly skeptical people are ready to learn how compassionate process and intention trumps winning. I believe the DPS Board would benefit from this approach.
I spent the last 2 years (since my District 4 2009 run for school board) studying, learning, serving, and trying to understand this massive entity called DPS and the public education system.. for which I received no compensation. I humbly submit that I have a unique, healthy approach to problem-solving and creating harmony amongst folks of differing views. I am now ready to be a great public servant.
Check out this whole website... my credentials, expertise and the research on the impact of Art. Music and Physical Fitness on learning... What If the Hokey Pokey IS what it is all about?
Click Here to download instructions on how to do the Hokey Pokey... probably one of the simplest solutions to waking up the whole brain... Wherever you are at 6:00 pm each day, do these moves, sing (or say) these words, clap your hands and believe that you can make a difference in a child's life!
Do you remember Tinkerbell and her light? The story of Peter Pan and believing you can fly continue to shape my adult life. Don't let that light go out... believe in that light in all of us!
Let 3 others know that logical solutions just take a little creativity. Ask about my IOTTVTHAT "It only takes two villagers to help a teacher" program. We'll be making this happen starting November 2nd...
There's gotta be SHUMWAY to keep creative logic alive in DPS! JACQUELINE CAROLE SHUMWAY is the longest name in the At-Large category.

I you need a yard sign... let me know.

Well-rounded people are CREATIVE AND LOGICAL...
We have to quit ignoring that cutting Arts, Music and Physical Fitness has devastated
our public education system over the last 30 years!
