Virginia-Rhodes-Education-Expert-Photo.jpg
Virginia Rhodes, EdD has over 35 years experience in Urban School District Policy, Development, and Administration and Teaching. Dr. Rhodes' specialty is persistently failing city schools.

Consulting Focus:
  • *STEM Start-ups
  • *STEM and Environmental Strategies with Urban High School Students
  • Innovative Teacher Hiring while Honoring Teacher Union Contracts
  • Rebuilding School Culture and Effective Security and safety
Background - Dr. Rhodes provided consulting services to an international firm on certain aspects of U.S. public school practices prior to their exploration of a related market sector. She also acted as a consultant to the University of Cincinnati Career Center assisting in the development of pre-service teacher hiring expectations. Dr. Rhodes was retained by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to co-investigate a study for mental health and achievement factors related to excessive student mobility. As a Consultant to AdvancedEd Accreditation Team School Evaluation, she has evaluated various high schools on issues of performance.

Dr. Rhodes has researched and written numerous articles on school mobility, achievement, culture, and STEM (NSF). She has delivered lectures on urban school district policy and other related topics to various groups and educational institutions.

What does it take to improve science performance in an inner-city high school? Could a science "immersion" strategy change motivation and interest in science? How can we meet a key strategic goal of our urban district: "All students graduate and are prepared for postsecondary education, successful careers and productive citizenship."

Creative professionals in team-based work settings value work communications skills among their colleagues. As public schools create professional learning communities and experiment with teacher-led curriculum and program development, traditional interview processes may prove inadequate for these new collaborative environments. New and creative selection models may be needed to enable teacher or other professional teams to choose candidates with the 21st century skills needed for success. In public sector environments, work rules are often highly developed and professionals are entitled to interview. Qualifications, training, experience and seniority as determinants often get reduced to transfer rights using seniority as the main or only criteria. This trend detracts from creating a competitive environment in which to attract & retain a high-quality teaching staff. Solutions can be found within existing contract parameters, however, if the attributes necessary to teach 21st Century skills are actually required to be demonstrated, not just described, in the interview process.

Critical to a dynamic STEM school is a high level of instructional rigor. While this is true in all STEM schools, it is a particular challenge in those programs that serve populations inexperienced with high levels of rigor in their previous coursework.

OK, I did learn enough in 35 years of high school teaching, administration, and marriage to know one thing: The way to anyone's heart is through their stomach! Feed them, and they will come.

Establishing a STEM High School (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics), and the Aiken Environmental, Ohio's first public environmental high school proved to be successful strategies to increase student engagement and raise standardized scores in science. High-poverty urban students from declining academic and disciplinary environments produced significant gains on science test results and credit attainment towards graduation. Using multiple overlapping rigor and SEL strategies, students experienced "science immersion," project-based learning, and a social-emotional curriculum that emphasized personal development and team/community-building skills.

    Jeffery-Lucas-Survey-Expert-Photo.jpg
    Jeffery N. Lucas, PLS ESQ, has been in the Land Surveying business since 1976. Mr. Lucas is a licensed land surveyor registered in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. He is a licensed attorney and was admitted to the Alabama State Bar in 2003.

    Mr. Lucas obtained his first land surveying license in Florida where he spent the first part of his surveying career. After relocating to Alabama, he has practiced across five southeastern states. His practice of law is focused on land boundary issues and real property law, including adverse possession, boundary disputes, professional liability, real property, and zoning and land use issues.

    Mr. Lucas has over 40 titles that he has developed in his seminar library, and has authored over 100 articles on surveying, boundary, and legal issues. He has a regular column in P.O.B. Magazine since 2004. Mr. Lucas is the author of Alabama Boundary Law, The Pincushion Effect, The Multiple Monument Dilemma in American Land Surveying, and "Illinois Boundary Law."

    Litigation Support - Mr. Lucas is a recognized expert in Boundary Surveying, Land Title Surveys, and Property Law. He specializes in Land Boundary issues as an attorney, land surveyor, consultant, mediator, and expert witness. He has been a seminar leader on surveying topics that include:
    • Land Surveying
    • Boundary Law
    • Law of Easements

    • Adverse Possession
    • Zoning
  • Land Use
  • Water Boundaries
  • Surveying Evidence and Procedures
  • Real Property Law
  • ALTA/ACSM Standards
  • Professional Liability
  • I'm not exactly sure where the phrase 'unwritten rights' came from, or who came up with the idea of unwritten conveyances in relation to surveying, boundaries and deeds, but it seems that it caught on quickly and then became a universal idea in the land surveying profession.

    Jeffrey Lucas
    American land surveying has a dilemma; it’s called the “pincushion corner.” This is a name used to describe the phenomena of multiple boundary monuments being set by land surveyors when only one boundary corner exists under legal contemplation. This book explores the full effect of the pincushion corner by exploring how the phenomena started and why it exists, and explores remedies to end the practices that allow the pincushion corner not only to exist, but to flourish.
    Jeffrey Lucas
    This is an essential reference book for anyone who needs to understand real property boundaries under Alabama law. Written primarily for land surveyors, this 607 page hardback (case wrap) book is also a valuable tool for real estate professionals, attorneys, and landowners. Arranged in twelve chapters, the subject matter includes the origination of real property title in the State of Alabama, how real property boundaries are established on the ground, deeds, conveyances, easements, rights-of-way, and water boundaries.

    In this mixed methods study, the prevalence of transformational, transactional, and laissez-faire leadership styles among incident commanders during incidents that utilized a unified command (UC) was examined, and differences between disciplines in leadership styles were investigated. The problem addressed was that it is currently unknown whether there is a dominant leadership style associated with incident commanders during an incident.

    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are the first type of chemicals that were ever discovered to cause cancer in humans. They are found in cigarette smoke, in barbecued and smoked foods, in automobile and Diesel engine exhaust, fireplace smoke, and many other common things that people are exposed to. Analyzing for PAHs in the environment is important in identifying potential sources of cancer exposure and eliminating these as risks.
