Jordyn Now Teaching At TSU

I waited as long as I could, then I couldn't hold it any longer. I had to figure out where to draw the line, how much of somebody else's business I could blog about, what is appropriate and what is not appropriate for me to yak-yak-yak about here. I could talk about those kids all day long. If Jordyn changes shoes, or if Mike plays a nice cd, I'll blog those as if I'd won the kabillion dollar lottery.

Okay, so I broke down and asked Jordyn if I could blog about the class project her students are working on. She said okay, with that look she gives me just before I go over the deep end with Below is the class announcement.

TSU Students Team up to Bring Hollywood to Houston


The students of my Public Address course in the Tavis Smiley School of Communication at Texas Southern University, under my leadership, are pioneering a class project entitled, 'REEL TALK, Exploring the Films of kA'RAMUU KUSH.'This is a community service endeavor designed to give student filmmakers the opportunity to dialogue with, and learn from, an established filmmaker. It is also an opportunity for students of all majors to explore careers in the film industry.

My students are bringing kA'RAMUU from Hollywood to Houston, where we will screen three of his short films, followed by a one-on-one 'Actor Studio' style interview and a networking reception. I am most proud, as my students are exemplifying unwavering commitment and determination to successfully develop their skills in making this monumental event a tremendous success. Many of them have odds stacked against them that we could not imagine; so it is my absolute pleasure to personally invite you to experience the fruit of their labor.

'REEL TALK' will take place on Monday, October 27, 2008 at 7PM at The Ensemble Theatre (Main Street). The event is FREE and open to the public. Children under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

This event is hosted by students of the SC136/Section 02 course in the Tavis Smiley School of Communication at Texas Southern University; and is sponsored by Yellow Wood Productions, The Ensemble Theatre, Willowridge High School Class of 1990 and The Buzz Firm.

Please spread the word...anyone and everyone is welcome!

Hope to see you there...

  1. sounds very creative, i didn't know there were topics like our kids or grand kids we couldn't talk about on blogs...I guess not doing it everyday. lol don't you love it when your kids roll their eyes at your antics as a loving parent?

  2. Oh Leona! You have every reason to be proud. If my son or daughter cooked a healthy meal, I'd brag about it. If they accomplished something they wanted I'd blog about that, too. Your beautiful, brilliant daughter is every mother's dream. She had a fabulous role model.
    Just wanted to drop by and leave this quick note to thank you for keeping me company on my journey. Just knowing you're there makes me smile.


I'm so glad you came by. PLEASE, let me know you were here and leave a comment.

Have a wonderful wonderful day!
