    Am a traditional healer in all sorts of spells, lost love spells, money spells, lotto spells, magic rings,Illuminati. My names are Dr dene bele from Zanzibar - Pemba and I originate from Zanzibar a well known spiritual island in a magical area of Tanganyika. Am an international traditional healer and a spells caster and most of my clients have nicknamed Father because of the good work I have done for them. I started healing people and casting spells at my early age with my grandmother Drbele Dundu. She taught me everything during the years I spent with her in all sorts of spells. She chose me from my 7 sisters and 5 brothers. She trained everything concerning spells. After her death my powers increased and all her spirits, ancestors and powers introduced them to me since I was the chosen one. I am able to access and give advice in many ways: Channeling dreams, casting spells, numerology, fortune analysis, tarot reading and many more. My powers promotes palm reading, holistic healing

    We really liked STMPG and Brick, but don't have connections. Our second choices are Merricats, Park Avenue Methodist Day School, and last IPS. Anyone have kids there? How did you like those second choice schools?

      If you want a more laid back environment, then go for IPS or Merricats. Both are great schools. PAM keeps having problems with their director.

                  Why are you gossiping about someone else's kid on this board? Why not worry about your own kid's issues? You have no idea what's going on with the kid or his family do you? Really, and I'm certainly not this kid's mom, but I would be really sad for others to be so judgy on the SN board.

          addition to your kid's future as a world citizen. Other schools I toured didn't try so hard to sell themselves, but they didn't have to b/c they've been around for a long time. I'm sure as Avenues becomes more established it won't have to do so much marketing.

  12. NYC Schools Florida Schooling?...(more) 8-15-2015 11:19am (3 replies)
    Wasn't sure which forum to post in but hoping to get some feedback. We are planning to move to Florida in two years. Have two children that will be ready for Kindgarten by the time we move. Problem is I have heard many horror stories and negative feedback from teachers in NYC about the lack of good schooling in The Sunshine State. Is this true? We will be probably moving to South Florida, either East coast or West coast, still looking at many different areas before we make the move--Naples, Sarasota, Clearwater, Miami or Palm Beach area...Does anyone know how the schooling systems are in any of these locations? How are public schools vs. private or Catholic schools...Are there any good private Catholic schools you can recommend. We want to take a good look at all schools. Anyone know a list of all the best schools in Florida? Thank you

        Thank you! Good question. He seeks sensory input by bumping into things and people and by putting things in his mouth. At times he makes loud noises for example when he wins a game he says "yea" but very amplified and hangs on to the "ea" so it ends up being a very loud scream. Overall he is a happy and friendly child, he does stuff to make people laugh and sometimes calls people variations of their name b/c he thinks its funny (though the other kids don't think they are funny.) He is entering pre-k and knows his letters and numbers and sounds to letters. We are working on sight words and he does not yet read. Thanks!!
