We're starting a charter school!
Hi everyone, my name is LaDaska and I'm a mom, designer, food and health enthusiast and natural born undoctrinated natural science discoverist. I have a bachelor's degree in fashion design and marketing and I enjoy reading about history and discovering healthy ways to improve my self and others.
I have three kids who I chose to homeschool (2) this past school year and I saw a 100% improvement in just four to six months.
For three years, I've had the dreams and fire to start a school and free lunch summer program but I didn't know where to start or how I would go about doing both. With the help of social media networks, people have guided me in the proper direction to start the free lunch summer program which I am starting to fill out paper work so that we can start this next summer for the kids in Nassau county, New York which is in the same community where I want to start the school.
This leaves the dream that was embedded in me since I was a child to help the next generation of kids to see that they are kings and queens and can be all of what they are destined to be despite the neighborhood or income class that's placed upon them. It is my duty to help improve the life of others through mental and self awareness by being in tune with nature and connecting with the universe around us.
So I decided to start my own school. After homeschooling my kids, I saw the greater possibility of doing what I did for my children for our kids in underserved areas. Living in a "poor" neighborhood should not prohibit one from a real education and I want to help change that.
Initially, I wanted to start a community homeschool program at my home but "god" said that was not the route. With my gut and soul feeling, I have been moved to find a location that can be purchased to start a small school for our kids in either Uniondale or Hempstead.
I am hoping to start this school within 2 years but if it happens sooner, that would better. I need to raise at least $40,000 to get everything up and running with locations, and codes in NY. I have $10,000 to input from my own pocket but need help to raise the remaining funds so that we can hire the proper staff and build the proper curriculum to help further the progression of our kids through mental stabilization, teaching about finances and business, history, math, sciences including natural science, metaphysics, and technology, agility & movement (afrikan focus).
The reason I am so passionate about this is simple, I care too much to sit back and watch our kids become brainwashed on what these corproations want our kids to learn. I have seen, witnessed, and researched what happens when corporations have their hands in our kids education. It is time to take back the livelihood of our children and future generations to come.
If you have any questions about what I'm going to do, please ask me anything.
I sincerely thank you for taking the time to read this and support the efforts of being the change you want to see motto.
