My high school dance team member is killing the Education game. Her personality is so sweet and larger than life. Additionally, her Spanish quickly puts most of us to shame. This is an example of how us artists can still leverage our Gifts and incorporate them with our Skills! Much love Jes <3

This year has been the most fantastic journey of my life. I now know that I was not made to do anything different than Adorn the already beautiful lives of people. Adorn really comes from my initial vision for the business, Math Tutoring. I never intended to be a teacher, but I wanted to add to the lessons already given. During my initial evaluation as a tutor, I have students bring their books, notes, exams, and homework. From these, I am able to get a better understanding of what their teacher has already taught them and how I can Adorn that instruction. This way, the student understands their current material, and I teach them concepts that will allow them to excel in the classroom.
The biggest lesson: Follow God Usually, when I introduce my company as “Adorn The World”, I would get the yeah… okay… World? look. Even before I knew how it would happen, I declared that I would impact the world. Through following God’s instructions to tap into the miracles that he has already placed into my life, Adorn The World was sponsored to teach and mentor at an engineering summer camp in The Bahamas! Some of the first year’s major accomplishments are:
I am most excited to announce that days before renewing my first company, Adorn The World, I began my my second company!! Psalm 150 Orchestra was established September 9, 2015! I am really excited about this vision that God has given me to take Adorn Artistry to another level.
Please leave your comments and current or future affiliation with Adorn The World below. Thank you so much for your prayers and support! It is invaluable, and I really appreciate it.
I am in a training class this week for turbine operations and maintenance. My teacher introduced a question by saying we would use a certain gearbox, which makes the math easy.
The (mostly rhetorical) question was:
A gear is spinning at 250 Hertz and it has 12 gear teeth. When multiplying those together, what is the speed of each gear tooth?
Within seconds, I said 3,000 Hertz and my other 5 classmates looked at me shocked (including the 2 engineers). I’m not sure if it was the introduction that the math would be made “easy” by the numbers he chose, or if I was looking at the numbers differently since I helped my friend factor some polynomials over the weekend. Regardless, let me tell you how I did it.
Unlike most, when I see the number 25 I get excited because it reminds me of quarters, which was the first numbers I learned – Money $$. Just after learning your multiples of 0, 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, all Algebrains (I just made that up) should learn your multiples of 25. With 25, the way I think about it is “It takes four of these to total 100.” So when multiplying 25 times 12, we have three-100s. But since we had 250 and not just 25, we now have thirty-100s also known as 30,00 or 3 thousand!
P.S. what we were really calculating in the class is known as the Gear Mesh Frequency, which I had to research the exact term for you all and myself :)
