Come be inspired! Better than youtube!
MOVEE – Mid Ohio Valley Entrepreneurship Expo
Entrepreneur? Wannabe entrepreneur? Not one, but would love to be inspired by hearing cool ideas and exciting stories of people who are?
After speaking to some of the presenters, I am awed by the opportunities to learn from successful entrepreneurs who have rich and varied life experiences that led them to work in unique and fascinating ways.
Save the Date! September 26, 2019! Right around the corner!
We are going to post a series of articles that will help you decide if MOVEE is something that would interest and benefit you. Since it is just one day, once a year, local, and very inexpensive/affordable, it seems a shame to miss out! If I wanted to attend a Dan Kennedy event, I’d have to travel, pay for lodging, and probably pay from $1,000 to $10,000 for the privilege. And likely he would be the only one speaking. I have been to writer’s conferences for $1200 a pop before.
So what is $30? And this event is as valuable, if not MORE, than conferences where we attend and it is half a commercial for another super expensive product, event or “club” with a hefty monthly fee!
I will try to make these brief so you can fit the read in your busy schedule.
You can also check out the program on the MOVEE page. The articles coming will give you a little more of a taste of the presenters’ personalities than the program – I hope!
Just a quick peek for now — The keynote speaker is a Shark Tank winner and Tedx Speaker. Take a look:
See you at MOVEE! ~ Christiane Marshall

On Wednesday, a group of Ghanaian Americans and Ghanaian Canadians of 240 youth from 11 years and up set up a church camp at the Marietta College Campus, and an adult camp of 300 set up at the Ohio University Campus.
The Ghanaian group wants to share with us by providing free health screenings, massage therapy and medication education to members of the Marietta community. Medical professionals will be on site, including MD’s, nurses, nurse practitioners, massage therapists and a pharmacist. A local chiropractor will also be providing free chiropractic screenings.
The campers are part of a larger group comprised of churches throughout North American, separated into three geographic zones (Central, Northeast, and Midwest). The Midwest group is here in Marietta this week. Each groups meets separately annually, but every 3 years, they choose a location and venue to meet together. Each year they choose a theme for their respective camps. This year’s theme is “Called Out,” based on I Peter 2:9.
According to organizers, they often get participants from all over the world also.
The Ghanaian Americans are a tight-knit community and will travel to each other’s locations when there are crises or deaths.
Please note the fair is only from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday!

Educating children requires collaboration from all participants that are stakeholders in the success of the learning
process. These stakeholders would include students, parents/guardians, teachers, administrators and the community. This year Phillips Elementary School has embarked on a partnership with Marietta College as part of community outreach. This partnership is beneficial for Phillips’ students and teachers, as well as Marietta College students who are training in the field of education. The partnership has been designed by a team at Marietta College to include Dr. Dottie Erb, Dean of the Marietta College Department of Education, Dr. Carole Hancock, Dr. Elaine O’Rourke, Dr. Cathy Mowrer and Dr. Bill Bauer.
Beginning this year, Marietta College initial field experience students will be actively observing classes at Phillips School in subject areas of reading, math, social studies and science to fulfill their education degree requirements. For each semester, Marietta College initial field experience students will be an active part of Phillips classes, not only to observe teaching methods, but to also work with individual students and small groups of students. The amount of hours in a particular classroom as an initial field experience student depends upon the particular course requirement. Collectively, Phillips teachers and MC initial field experience students will be able to exchange ideas and knowledge in teaching strategies and focused curriculum for various subject areas. Students at Phillips have responded well to having an additional educator in the room for select days of the week as part of their learning process. The addition of college students in the classroom serves as positive role modeling for the younger students’ learning process. Phillips students understand why these college students are in the classroom and it provides all students the observational piece for the importance of learning.
As part of the partnership, Marietta College has invited Phillips teachers for professional development opportunities in exchange for contributing class time to the experiential growth of MC education students. On September 15, Phillips teachers attended a workshop from the Operation Respect: Don’t Laugh at Me project presented by Molly McCloskey. The Operation Respect program was developed by Peter Yarrow of the 1960s folk trio group Peter, Paul and Mary. The basic philosophy of this anti-bullying program is to serve as an enrichment of ongoing efforts to build young people’s emotional, ethical and social development through character education, conflict resolution and teaching of tolerance programs. The program is one of the few programs to target anti-bullying through the use of curriculum, music and song. One of the featured songs of the program is entitled “Don’t Laugh at Me,” written by Steve Seskin and Allen Shamblin. The Operation Respect program is presented as a complete curriculum with books and CDs for age-appropriate activities and games to teach good character skills. This workshop brought a new resource and perspective to the ongoing mission in schools of working toward respect for everyone.
In addition to character development, October’s workshop at Marietta College featured the subject of mathematics. On October 13, teachers from Phillips Elementary attended a workshop taught by Dr. Sherry Parrish. Dr. Parrish is the creator and author of “Number Talks” which is a program designed to help students understand that math is not just a series of steps and procedures, but a problem solving method to manipulating numbers. For instance, teachers were taught how students could understand the manipulation of various number equations from distributive properties to assist with solving math problems mentally. Phillips teachers will be able to take the knowledge and resources gained from this class and apply it in their own math instruction. “Number Talks” can be a successful approach for changing the way students comprehend math, and most importantly the relationships of numbers in math conceptually. Several teachers have already mentioned incorporating this time period into their instruction to enhance the existing curriculum. To further Phillips’ development and continuation of this math approach, Marietta College donated a book and instructional DVD.
October also brings our Title I literacy night for kindergarten through second grade families. This is a fun night entitled “Harvesting New Books To Read.” Marietta College students and Phillips Title I teachers work collaboratively to plan a night of enjoyment to celebrate reading. Events include information about reading programs, gourmet apple treats and beverages and reading books to small groups of families. Marietta College also provides fall-themed bags with a book for each of our attending Phillips students with a visit from local children’s book author Dr. Cathy Mowrer.
In just a few short months, many educational opportunities have transpired for all stakeholders involved in Phillips’ partnership with Marietta College. It will be exciting to see how this collaborative effort grows in the future and continues an ongoing effort to integrate Marietta City Schools into the Marietta community as a whole. My belief is that it takes an entire community of support to be able to provide these opportunities for our children, our students and our future.
