Today's Guest: Dina Loannou

 

In her ‘day job’ Dina works as a Teacher Educator and Trainer at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) in the field of ESOL.  She’s been a teacher for over 22 years - or longer if you count the times she played teacher as a child. 
 
Dina is also founder of Lessons-in-Self, she is at her happiest sharing her life’s journey, by inspiring and empowering others to becoming the person they are destined to be through her transformational Education for Life programmes, which she’s presented at teachers’ conferences in Switzerland and the UK as well as teaching her methodology at schools.. 
 
She’s developed programmes that aim to support and develop wellbeing, or a healthy sense of Self which can be used  by both teachers and learners alike. Though on first appearance these activities appear unassuming, they have the creative potential to reach a much deeper level. Linguistically, they are so simple they can be used with almost any level and teaching context within an ESOL context too. 
   
Teacher burnout is increasing and is an international epidemic (Rankin 2016), with this in mind  Dina’s  current programme aims to support teachers who feel (or think, but not sure) they’re going through burnout.  The programme is based on Positive Psychology and Wellbeing interventions and tools. "I believe that burnout happens for a reason. My mission is to explore the positive effects of burnout as a catalyst for change and to help teachers go from burnout to brilliance.

Vegetables for Breakfast W/ Cheryl Meyer

February 18, 2019

324x325_Cheryl_Meyer.jpg

Today's Guest: Cheryl Meyer

Cheryl's message is simple, “eliminate toxins, and heal your chronic pain. Own your own health.
I got sick and didn't want a life of pain and pills."

Thus began an odyssey that culminated in Meyer’s writing the manual she wishes she’d had
when she got sick. In her award winning book It Feels Good to Feel Good: Learn to Eliminate
Toxins, Reverse Inflammation and Feel Great Again, Meyer explains how she discovered she
was suffering from inflammation and autoimmune disease, how she actively searched out,
purged, and replaced toxins in her life, how she found the right doctor (a Functional MD), and
how she finally returned to wellness.

Eliminating hundreds of toxins was a big step in reducing Cheryl’s chronic pain. Eliminating
toxins was a critical step in healing her leaky gut, which is the cause of inflammation. As she
regained her health, she returned to school and became a health coach to share her new
knowledge with others. She comments, “I wrote this book for people with autoimmune disease
and inflammation, but really, it’s for everyone. Inflammation is a root cause of many of our
illnesses and disease, cancer, heart disease, strokes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression, skin
ailments, Type I and Type II diabetes, possibly even autism.

Inflammation inhibits weight loss. I have given talks to people with autoimmune disease but
also to people who are cancer survivors, people who are stroke survivors, moms with children
with health issues, and millennials that don’t want to get sick like their parents.
Toxins are everywhere and impacting our health, the health of our children, and the health of
our earth. I would like people to eliminate the toxins now and not wait until they get sick and
tired of being sick and tired.” She adds, “It’s all about toxic load. Each toxin that is eliminated is one step closer to health.”

Cheryl holds a BA from the University of California Berkeley. She is a Certified Integrative
Nutrition Coach, Cheryl M Health Muse, and received that designation from the Institute of
Integrative Nutrition©, in New York City in 2017. She is a self-employed business owner and is
a member of Wellness Universe. Her book has won 12 awards to date.

LA Teacher Strike W/ Jacqueline Torres

January 28, 2019

 

image1.jpeg 

 

Today's Guest: Jacqueline Torres

Jacqueline hails from the San Fernando Valley, roughly 20 miles north of Downtown Los Angeles, a product of a hard working immigrant family . Although she has always maintained a strong affinity for drawing, she never partook in a single Art class until she began her studies at CSUN (California State University Northridge). While attending CSUN, she acquired her B.A. in Fine Art, along with a minor in Chicano Studies, as well as her single subject teaching credential. During her time teaching at several school sites, “Jackie” developed a wealth of experience while working with students representing a variety of demographics. Recently, she returned to her alma mater -San Fernando High School- where she currently teaches Ceramics, happily giving back to her community.

Jackie finds a great deal of comfort working in familiar territory. At San Fernando, she has been given a chance to offer her students an opportunity to see themselves reflected in an educator and leadership capacity.

Currently, 73% of the students in the LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) are Latinx, and another 15% represent other ethnic [so-called] “minorities”. With 66% of the teachers also representing people-of-color -43% of whom are Latinx- the LAUSD boasts the highest average in the nation. In many other regions of the U.S., roughly 80% of teachers are Caucasian, while students-of-color comprise more than half of the 51 million kids who are enrolled within the school systems. This is significant to Jackie, who views her role as an educator as integral towards dealing with matters of social justice. She works diligently to empower her students by teaching them the importance of the artistic and cultural contributions championed by people who share their roots.  

Evening out the educational playing field is no small task, but working in Title 1 schools, she tries to give her students as much access as other students in better resourced schools she’s worked in by offering Advanced Placement studio classes and taking them on a variety of field trips local and as far as Europe on one occasion. Jackie doesn’t shy away from discussing politics and promoting social awareness trying to make her students active participants in their communities. She started a social justice club in her prior school regularly meeting and taking actions every week, organizing events and even participating in an immigration march with her students. Jackie set out to be the teacher she would have wanted to have and works harder to be the teacher that so many of her students need.. 

When she is not teaching, Jacqueline is painting and exhibiting her work. She also enjoys traveling, playing soccer, and learning her mother’s recipes.
