After-School in Queens Village
/alkəməst/ (noun). Origin
Alchemist : a person who can take something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary, sometimes in a way that cannot be explained.
“You cannot control the results, only your actions.” - A. Lokos
We have been teaching & assisting our students with homework for over 10 years. We now understand the responsibility we have to help our alchemists better understand their talents, skills, and abilities both inside of the classroom and themselves.
How to be an Alchemist
at Ace Academic Learning Centers
-random moments of awareness.
Cognitive Connections is a space where we can share insights about our experiences.
I remember both as a child and as an adult, being lied to and lying when being asked or responding to this question.
"What's wrong?" or
"What's the matter?"
I never thought much of it, and would often respond, "nothing.". It wasn't until I came into my awareness that each time a child asks me "What's wrong?" and there in fact is something wrong, it is because they are sensing my discomfort. If a child is sensing my discomfort they are behaving intuitively. Therefore, each time I disregard those behaviors with a lie, I communicate to that child that their internal knowing, their intuiton is not to be trusted.
I think it is important to be able to at a young age, validate your intuition because it's the confidence and self-love you build from that, that will give you the confidence to raise your hand in class, volunteer and strive for honor roll.
Internal confidence is reflected externally.
