More about Charles James III...
Mr. James is currently a fourth-grade Special Education teacher for Milwaukee Public Schools. With his fiancée Shay, he is a parent of seven children, the three oldest being students that attend MAS (7th Grader Nyzhaya Scott-James, 7th Shaniya Woods & 4th Grader Qimora Woods Tolefree). Charles is a tremendous family-oriented man. God, love, family, knowledge, and building positive character are his family's principles. It’s these principles that are helping Charles continue to live by his motto A.N.T. Lyfe which stands for “Ascension is Necessary Throughout Life.” This motto is not only a reminder for Charles and his family during these hard times but also thousands of people who follow him on social media.
5:30 am: My alarm on my phone goes off to wake me or my fiance up. Some days we lay there to see who’s going to get it first. Lately, it has been me.

5:45 am: I wake up and simply say thank you, God. I thank him for yet another day to spread love. I may have a small conversation with my Fiance before I start moving. Clean the room because my fiance is always first in the shower.

6:15 am: I wake up my oldest (Niyah) if she isn’t already awake at her request. Some days I think she is up before us all.

6:20 am: Wash up my one-year-old and get her dressed and sit her in front of some cartoons with something to eat and/or drink.

6:45 am: I get baby Messiah ready for daycare as well if my fiance hasn’t done so already.

7:00 am: I check in on my three oldest children (Niyah, Shaniyla and Qimora) to ensure they are up and being productive. Say something to inspire, motivate and/or build their confidence for the day. Head outside to pull my fiance’s car out of the garage and make sure it’s warm enough before she heads to work. Before she leaves I pray for her and walk her out to her car to see her off to work.

7:15 am: Drop Messiah and Sophia off to daycare while listening to my morning gospel playlist. It’s a vibe, and definitely mandatory.

7:30 am: Take a quick shower, get dressed, eat and upload my videos to my platforms. 

8:30 am: Working virtually teaching! Checking in on my girls and making sure they are in classes throughout the day. Assisting them when needed. Making calls to their teachers if needed. 

11:15 am: Lunch Break with Shaniyla, Qimora, and Nyzhaya (Their lunch break is 11:45-12:15 so it’s not the full lunch break.) Call my fiance and check-in to see how her day is going.
