I thought self-awareness was something for dope-smoking hippies. It doesn’t matter how you feel.  Just do your job. But…Lack of self-awareness limits leadership.

Self-awareness and energy:

Self-management requires self-awareness.

Self-awareness enables you to monitor and manage personal energy. Managing personal energy is the essence of self-management.

For Pi day, a free virtual field trip all about 3.14159

To help celebrate Pi day, Discovery Education will host a live virtual field trip to the laboratories of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) featuring mathematicians and scientists demonstrating practical uses of the numerical value of the ratio of the circumference of a circle on March 13Pi day eve. (3/14 falls on a Saturday this year).

During this 30-minute virtual field trip, students will get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the NIST facilities, exploring its nanotechnology section, 3D lab, fire research division, and underground labs. Speakers will discuss the role of Pi and mathematics in the operation of the everyday products and services, such as skyscrapers, jetliners, computers, video games, cell phones, and cars.


Talking about poor performance doesn’t improve performance.

Talking about what went wrong doesn’t produce results. You can’t deliver positive results by “not doing” things.

Conversations that deliver results face forward. Performance is about what needs to be done in the future, not what was done in the past.

Achieve results by talking about where you’re going, how to get there, and why it matters.

Former JP Educator of the Year Will Be Missed

Of all the people we’ve come into contact with over the past 25 years, there are a few select individuals who stand out from the crowd, and for us, Debra Brantley was one of those individuals. We received the heartbreaking news last Wednesday March 4th that she had passed on at the age of 63, and our thoughts have been with her family and reminiscing on her memory every since.

As described by JP team member Maggie Boozer, “Debra always had a story or two to share, and I loved to hear her laugh! She was so much fun and could certainly be named “The Life of the Party!” Great and happy memories. I will miss her. Now for the other side of Debra Brantley... She meant business when it came to education - any level, any teacher, any system, any child. I mean to tell you, that infectious smile and laugh was NOT present during some of our harder moments. We pondered, but we did not laugh. We considered this strategy or that, but we did not laugh. We studied diligently, but we did not laugh. We prayed over a situation or two, but we did not laugh. Debra Brantley meant business when it came to education. I loved and admired her. I will miss her. Her legacy lives on."

Debra Brantley was honored at one of our past JP Institutes in Atlanta as Educator of the Year, and no one deserved this award more than Ms. Brantley. Her entire family of devoted educators is an inspiration to us all.

JP Founder and President Janie Feinberg was particularly saddened by the news, and had this to share: “Debra Brantley was one of the most dedicated educators JP Associates has ever had the pleasure to partner with. The greatest gift of all was that when JP had the honor of working with Ms. Brantley, we knew children’s needs ALWAYS came first! What a tremendous loss for all of those who knew her and had the pleasure of working with her. Our thoughts are prayers go out to her wonderful family.”
