During the month of December 2017, seven victims were robbed and assaulted in Dallas, TX. The victims were lured to a location through the use of the dating app “Grindr”. The Dallas Police Department would like you to consider these tips if using a dating app to meet someone:

• When meeting in surrounding cities that may be unfamiliar to you, always research a safe meeting location and familiarize yourself with the area.
• Always meet in a well-lit, public place.
• Never go alone.
• Always meet during the day.
• Keep your cell phone close and be ready to call 911 at the first sign of trouble.
• Never give out personal or financial information.
• Let someone know where you’ll be and who you are meeting.
• Leave if you feel uncomfortable and call 911 to report any suspicious activity.

Conrad Academy of Finance teaches real-world money skills to students

Students in Emmett J. Conrad High School’s Emmett J. Conrad High School’s NAF Academy of Finance aren’t simply studying money in an abstract way. Instead, they are learning practical ways to earn, manage and save money.

That’s especially important as many Conrad students help contribute to their families’ incomes.

Read and listen to a great story from KERA on the academy and its students. The NAF Academy of Finance is just one of many Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs in Dallas ISD that teach students real-world skills in a variety of disciplines that they can carry with them into careers and life after school.


Central Market takes Teacher of the Year party to winners’ classrooms













After being honored at a special reception on Jan. 17, Dallas ISD’s 2017-2018 Teachers of the Year were visited in their classrooms the next day by representatives from Central Market.

This year’s top teachers are Josue Tamarez Torres, a fifth-grade math teacher at Annie Webb Blanton Elementary School; Beth Poquette Drews, who teaches mariachi, orchestra and guitar for grades 6-8 at L.V. Stockard Middle School; and Nedra Johnson, who teaches science for grades 6-8 at Alex W. Spence Middle School.

Along with balloons, a cake and a fruit tray, teachers received a ceremonial check symbolizing the $5,000 prize each takes home and also a poster signed by well-wishers at Thursday night’s event.


Destacando a: Audrey Pinkerton

Audrey Pinkerton representa al Distrito 7 en la Junta Escolar de Dallas ISD que incluye el área del centro norte de Oak Cliff y partes del oeste de Dallas. En este fragmento de su columna mensual en The Advocate, la representante explica cómo la innovación en el salón de clases ayuda a los estudiantes a sobresalir y cómo un socio de la escuela apoya este esfuerzo.

La innovación impulsa la excelencia en los salones

Al observar algunos de los salones más exitosos hoy en día, probablemente descubrirá que comparten puntos en común, entre estos, oportunidades para que los estudiantes puedan explorar, resolver problemas, colaborar, crear e innovar.

Cada año, los maestros más innovadores de Dallas ISD determinan formas de integrar todos estos componentes en sus salones a través de actividades prácticas que brindan experiencias de aprendizaje increíblemente enriquecedoras para los niños.

La organización Junior League de Dallas apoya a muchos de estos maestros al otorgar subvenciones para la enseñanza innovadora para ayudar a dar vida a sus proyectos. Este año, cerca de 70 maestros recibieron becas para aumentar el aprendizaje de los estudiantes, y ocho de esos maestros son del Distrito 7.

Vea aquí una breve reseña de sus proyectos:

Jardines ecológicos con acuaponía en Trini Garza Early College

¿Qué es acuaponía? Los estudiantes de Trini Garza Early College están cultivando un jardín sostenible a través de este proceso que combina desechos de pescado y agua para fertilizar plantas y vegetales. Puede que no suene demasiado atractivo, pero permite a los estudiantes cultivar jardines interiores en un espacio mucho más pequeño y a un ritmo más rápido. El programa utiliza un enfoque multidisciplinario para los estudiantes, que combina la acuicultura, las matemáticas, la biotecnología, la zoología y mucho más.

También en Garza, los estudiantes evalúan los ecosistemas a través de su estudio de la calidad del agua y la contaminación del aire. Con la ayuda de las cuencas hidrográficas que se encuentran en las áreas de bosque que rodean el plantel escolar, los estudiantes analizan los efectos de la actividad humana que afecta el cambio climático.

La ciencia del sonido

Los estudiantes de Sidney Lanier exploran la ciencia del sonido a través de clases de música que se centran en el aprendizaje de percusión utilizando los tubos Joia inspirados por Blue Man Group.

Transmisión de noticias producida por estudiantes

Los estudiantes de Quintanilla Middle School investigan el mundo de la transmisión de noticias mientras programan una emisión, diseñan guiones gráficos y desarrollan las mejores formas de reportar historias que afectan su mundo.

Robótica y fracciones

Las escuelas primarias Stevens Park y Winnetka están añadiendo o expandiendo los programas de robótica que hacen posible que los estudiantes participen en la construcción y desarrollo de robots programables. Los estudiantes de Rosemont, a su vez, están utilizando material manipulable para tener un mejor entendimiento de las fracciones.

La innovación impulsa la excelencia en nuestros salones. Gracias a nuestros amigos de la organización Junior League por apoyar y fomentar ambientes de aprendizaje que ayudan a los estudiantes a progresar.


Trustee Spotlight: Audrey Pinkerton

Trustee Audrey Pinkerton represents District 7 which includes North Central Oak Cliff and parts of West Dallas. In this excerpt from her monthly column in The Advocate, she shares how innovation in the classroom helps students soar and how one partner supports that effort.

Innovation drives excellence in classrooms

When you look at some of the most successful classrooms today, you find many of them share commonalities, including opportunities for students to explore, problem solve, collaborate, create and innovate.

Every year, Dallas ISD’s most innovative teachers determine ways to bring all of these components to their classrooms through hands-on activities that provide incredibly rich learning experiences for kids.

The Junior League of Dallas supports many of these teachers by awarding Grants for Innovative Teaching to help bring their projects to life. This year, nearly 70 teachers received grants to increase student learning, and eight of those teachers are here in District 7.

Here’s a peek at their exciting projects:

Sustainable gardens with aquaponics at Trini Garza Early College

What’s aquaponics? Students at Garza Early College are growing a sustainable garden through this process that combines fish waste and water to fertilize plants and vegetables. It may not sound too inviting, but it allows students to grow indoor gardens in a much smaller space and at a faster pace. The program uses a multidisciplinary approach for students, combining aquaculture, math, biotechnology, zoology and much more.

Also at Garza, students evaluate ecosystems through their study of water quality and air pollution. With the help of watersheds that sit on wooded areas surrounding the campus, students analyze the effects of man-made activity that impacts climate change.

The science of sound

Sidney Lanier students explore the science of sound through music classes that focus on percussive learning using the Joia tubes that were inspired by the Blue Man Group.

Student produced broadcast news

Students at Quintanilla Middle School explore the world of broadcast news as they plan a broadcast, design storyboards and develop the best ways to tell stories that impact their world.

Robotics and fractions

Stevens Park and Winnetka elementary schools are adding or expanding robotic programs that will engage students in building and developing programmable robots, and Rosemont students are utilizing manipulatives to better understand fractions.

Innovation drives excellence in our classrooms.

Thanks to our friends at Junior League for supporting and encouraging learning environments that help students thrive.

January is School Board Recognition Month, a time to thank local leaders for their dedication and willingness to serve as advocates for children and public schools. Dallas ISD joins other districts across the state in recognizing the work of its board. 


Young Women’s STEAM Academy donation helps support future scientists and engineers

Kimley-Horn, an engineering and planning firm, donated 74 boxes full of classroom supplies to teachers at Young Women’s STEAM Academy at Balch Springs.

More than 500 employees at the firm chipped in to stuff the supplies boxes that included calculators, notebooks, STEM-related projects, and more. The supplies will help the students become the next generation of engineers and scientists.

“Kimley-Horn kicks off each new year with a gathering of our Texas staff. As we planned this year’s meeting, we sought ways to serve the engineering profession through community service. What better way than to support the education of future engineers and scientists in the Dallas area?”  Kimley-Horn Regional Leader Aaron Nathan said. “By creating supply boxes for the Young Women’s STEAM Academy at Balch Springs, we are helping to support the Dallas Independent School District as well as a brighter, more diverse future for our industry.”

Dallas ISD is always looking for partners to help support Dallas ISD schools. Email partners@dallasisd.org to see how you can help!

No. 8 1B prospect Guzman eyeing Major role

First baseman Ronald Guzman will be at the Dr. Pepper Texas Rangers Awards Dinner on Friday night to accept the Tom Grieve Minor League Player of the Year Award. He has also been ranked as the eighth-best first-base prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline.


Fister glad to sign contract early, autographs now

Rangers pitcher Doug Fister was at Kroger in north Arlington on Thursday signing autographs. He was not at home in Merced, Calif., waiting for the phone to ring like so many other free agents this winter. That has to be a big relief during a winter when the free-agent market has moved far slower than anybody expected.

It appears there was nothing to the rumors, but it is accurate to say the Rangers would be open to upgrading defensively in center. Delino DeShields has heard the rumors.

The Single Guy Blog

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!


My Dream Girl’s Baby Daddy Revealed

Well after a month of stalking my dream girl’s facebook page I finally found out who her baby daddy is. To get you up to speed I was shocked a while back to find out my dream girl was pregnant. I had never even seen her post anything about a man in her life. Well after a long wait she finally tagged her baby daddy to a post about the baby. I of course had to click on his name and check him out. And of course he is a low ranking military guy. Now don’t get me wrong I respect our military. But in this area most of the military guys are not the most upstanding people. And this guy is no different. So prediction-in a year or two my dream girl will be a single mother,left by her baby daddy when he got transfered or cheated on her with some other flavor of the week. But hey that is the life of a single guy-watching the hot girls fall for the cool guys that don’t deserve them and will treat them like crap.


My Dream Girl Is Pregnant

I was stalking around Facebook the other night checking out different posts by people like I do when I am bored. I checked out the Facebook page of a girl I have always had a huge crush on. This girl is beautiful. My total dream girl. What did I see? A post saying she was pregnant. That’s right my dream girl is pregnant. Now don’t get me wrong I always knew and know I would never have a chance with this girl. But what surprised me is that she never talks about a man in her life. She never posts pictures of her and a guy. And in fact I always thought maybe she was a lesbian because she always posted pictures of her and her hot model girlfriends. So now I am wondering who is the father? Is she dating someone and just not posting it? Even in the comments on her posts about being pregnant everyone just congratulates her. They never mention a boyfriend. Did she get pregnant by having a drunken one night stand? Did she intentionally get pregnant even though she says it was a surprise finding out she was pregnant? I mean no offense but there is so much birth control around if a girl gets pregnant she is either really stupid or wanted to get pregnant. And I have never considered this girl to be stupid. And who is the guy and what is he like? Is he some military guy from Fort Drum? Is he a professional? Is he unemployed? And does he ever know or care he is going to have a baby with this goddess? So many unanswered questions! One thing for sure,I will be checking out her page a lot to see if I can get an idea of exactly who this lucky guy is. This guy that knocked up my dream girl!


2017-And Still Single

Well we are almost a month into 2017-and I am still single. I wonder if Miss Right will find me this year. She seemed like she was in hiding during 2016. I mean I realize a lot of things happened in 2016 and she was probable busy. My Miss Right was probable busy helping Trump get elected President. Miss Right most likely was working with Obama to fight this Isis problem. Miss Right was obviously tied up helping my Cowboys win the NFC East. Oh and I am totally sure my Miss Right was completely taken up with helping to stop this whole Global Warming situation. But come on enough is enough….come on Miss Right…put all this dam community service aside and find me already!


Scam Girls

I never thought I would fall for it-but I did. You see there is a large group of girls on the internet that try to scam guys. They try to get them to send them money with the promises they want to meet but need some help to get by. I always have thought I was smart about all this. When I start talking to a girl off one of the dating websites I always try to look her up to make sure she is real. Well I started texting a girl yesterday off the Seekingarrangement website I have been on for about a year. We were texting back and forth. I searched her number on facebook and found her profile. Everything seemed legit. She said she wanted a long term arrangement with an older guy. We talked until about 5pm. Then she said she was trying to get money for her baby sitter and gas in the car and if I would send her some money. She even said she was sorry she was asking and would pay me back when she got paid next week. So I sent her $50 through Paypal. She said thank you so much. I said your welcome. And that was it. I texted her a few times after that and no response. I sent her a friend request on facebook and she blocked me. I had fallen for it. A scam girl had gotten me! The funny part about the whole thing is she could have gotten way more from me if she had kept talking to me and kept me going. I mean seriously $50 is not much,hell I spent more then that on lunch yesterday. But it’s just the point I got had. But you live and learn. But one thing is for sure-if your on seekingarrangement.com and start talking to a girl with lots of tatoos from Elmira Ny that calls herself Hannah,don’t send her money! You can thank me later for saving you money!

War Is Coming

People don’t want to admit it but war is coming between the U.S. and North Korea. North Korea is getting close to having a long range Nuclear missile that can hit the U.S. Americans don’t have the stomach for war but they need to get it and fast. If North Korea is allowed to get a missile that can strike our home land the party is over. The war is not going to be pretty. Lots of people in South Korea will die and so will American soldiers. But war is the only way to stop the mad man in the North. The left wing Liberals,liberal media and lots of gutless Americans think that we can talk to the leader of North Korea to get him to stop his Nuclear and missle programs. But that just won’t work. The more we talk the more he keeps building. He now has a million man army. Now to be honest-again something the Liberal media will not tell you-a lot of those million soldiers in the North are just teenagers. When the real fighting starts a lot of that million is going to run home to mommie. Right now the boys think they are cool in a uniform fighting for their country,but when the bullets and bombs fly the coolness will end and they will drop their arms and run. But there will still be soldiers that fight. The war will start shortly with an air campaign. Once our bombings of the North start then North Korea will start bombing South Korea. Then China will get in as well as Japan. If we are lucky the Russians might sit this one out. They have no real interest in that area of the world and they know they have their hands full in Syria. The war will be short but bloody. And President Trump will carry the blame,when he is actually doing what Presidents before him should have done. They should have stopped North Korea long ago before they were strong enough to give us a battle. But yes America war is coming-so get ready for it!


Why Obama Care Didn’t Work

President Trump is now in the process of repealing and replacing Obama Care. Everyone knows Obama Care didn’t work,even if they do not want to admit it. What a lot of people don’t know is why it didn’t work. It is very simple-Obama Care didn’t work because to many people were forced to buy insurance. The insurance industry is a business,and as a business they need to make a profit. Insurance companies rely on more people having insurance then actually use it. But when Obama Care mandated that everyone had to buy insurance people instantly wanted to use the insurance they purchased. Before,when people didn’t have insurance if they got a cold they stayed in bed,had chicken soup and recovered in a few days. Now with people being forced to buy insurance you can bet as soon as they even got the sniffles they went to the doctor. Before Obama Care people bought insurance for emergencies. The people who had insurance knew that some day they would need it for a major illness,but did not use it for the slightest ailment. The new health care plan that has been introduced does not have a mandate. If they keep that then this new health care law should do fine.


Hollywood Is Out Of Touch

After watching and listing to some of the actors and actresses in the past week talk about President Trump I now know that Hollywood is out of touch with main stream America. Hollywood just can not deal with the fact that their views do not reflect American values. What is worst is Hollywood can not deal with losing the election. Clinton did in deed win the popular vote. But what people don’t want to admit is Clinton won that popular vote by winning NYC and the LA/Hollywood areas. A lot of people live in these areas but their values are not the values of main stream America. Clinton did not win the working voters in Michigan or the farmers in the Midwest. She did not win the Southern voters in the bible belt. Clinton did not win the retired population in Florida. The protesters this past week are showing this generations true colors. A generation that has always gotten a trophy even if they finished last. A generation that has always gotten their own way-from Gay rights to Womens equal rights. A generation that has been able to work less because the government will give them a hand out to make ends meet. Well Hollywood and NYC better buckle their seat belts because the next four years and beyond are going to be a very bumpy ride. President Trump is in the White House and main stream America has taken back their country!


President Trump In 7 More Days

Well its been a long road but in just 7 more days we will have a new President. The last year and a half has been up and down. For a while I actually had my doubts if Trump could do it. But he did! And it is pretty obvious Clinton supporters thought for a long time that she would be the next President. Hotels in the Washinton DC area reported a huge number of cancellations because Clinton supporters had already made reservations planning to come to see their candidate take the Oath of Office. Now most hotels are booked back up again with Trump supporters. To get a room in the Washington DC area next week it will cost over $1,000 a night. Who knows what the next four years will be like. Maybe Trump will be a great President and maybe he won’t. I am certain of one thing however,the liberal media is going crazy trying to figure out what happened. They still will not admit that they were out of touch with main stream America. The liberal media thought what they believed was what America believed. Trump hit a nerve with Americans. When I say Americans I am not talking about people in NYC or LA. Those people do not reflect true Americans. True Americans think the government has gotten out of control,that there is to much interference in our lives and special interest groups like the Gaye and Lesbian groups have gotten way to much attention over the past 8 years. America took their country back and next week their leader will take control of a country wanting and needing a change. God Bless President Trump and God Bless the USA!

Elmo, Raisins and 5 Other Things You Don’t Understand Until You Have Kids

I remember wondering (pre-parenthood) why Elmo became the muppet of choice amongst toddlers and pre-schoolers. He’s annoying and talks in baby talk, I thought, is that really what kids like? Yes, these are the deep, meaningful musings of my pre-parenthood self, but the shorthand answer is yes, the tots love that dude. I’ve seen it […]
