My story. School without borders

The Kelley Williams-Bolar story – My Story

My soon-to-be-released autobiography covers my personal battles with
Ohio’s public school and criminal justice systems. It is a story of how
these two totally different institutions converged to rob me of the life
of my father, my liberty and my pursuit of happiness.

My soon to be released autobiography will take you into the depths of my
sad and harrowing experiences as a single mother who was convicted of two
felonies and sentenced to jail time all in the name of seeking quality
education for my two daughters in a place I call ‘home.’

My book will take you step by step into what I call “the lions’ den” – a
world I never knew existed, and how my single decision to keep my
daughters safe changed my life forever. My book explains how the criminal
justice system and the public school system ‘ganged-up’ on me to deprive
me of my rights and deny my children of equal protection under the law.

Please check this blog regularly for updates on my book and my activities
as I try to recover what is left of my life and my daughters’ lives and
while I continue to advocate for quality education for all children in
America.

The Kelley Williams Bolar story. We all have a story

The Kelley Williams Bolar story. We all have a story.

This is my blog. I will write what is dear to my heart. Education and children are what I live for. I have gratitude for having the opportunity to work with students and travel the Country and speak to people about my story. Caring for a child can be the most challenging reward a parent can achieve. My name is KelleyWilliams –Bolar I am an ex-felon. However, my charges were for sending my two daughter’s to an out of district school my( Father’s school district). Never at any time did I burglarize or assault anyone. I did not rape or steal. I was charged and convicted for falsifying records about my residency so that my daughters could attend a safer, higher-performing suburban school. Presently, I work at a local High School with teens that have behavior and emotional disturbances. I enjoy working with this population of teens, but what hurts the most is when I hear on a daily basis that a teen wants to commit suicide. Believing their life is not worth a nickel.  Displaying sleeping patterns throughout the day and not wanting to connect with other peers.  Never could I ever want to hear a child say “I have nothing to live for” Teen suicide is real.  I am a paraprofessional. I work along side of the Teacher’s in the classroom. I love what I do. Yet, it pains me to know that children have dark clouds over their heads every day.  Only a teenager, they have not began to touch the surface of adulthood. I have a way of digging deeper into a child’s mind. They release their emotions to me. unleashing their thoughts is a gift that I have and I go deep into what is on their mind. This  gift I am grateful for.

The tragedy of a young person dying because of overwhelming frustration is devastating to family, friends, and communities. Many of the students I care for are from foster care homes. Some cases Grandparents have custody. They are confused and believe they have no worthiness in this world we call home. Some believe their own parents do not want them so they are not worthy of their precious life. So, I do my best to reassure them they are unique in their own way. I want them to know that they have so much to give to the world. One particular student recently told me they tried committing suicide on three different occasions. They go on to say that no one wants them, and they argue every day from home family members.  Students sometimes come to school with this load on their shoulders. Many times it’s taken out on Teachers.  Since I am a paraprofessional my position is to help the teachers in the classroom and assist the students with redirection and engaging staying on task with their assignments. This gives me the chance to connect on a deeper level with the students. Many times I am the one that reports back to the Teachers and I inform them of what is going on emotionally with the students. It’s sad that many cases, teacher’s may not know the root of a child’s behavior.  If you know of a peers, students, neighbors, or love one that feels this way it would be a good idea to get them help and also talk with them yourself. Reassure them they are special.  Giving them feedback important to gain their trust.
