The more I teach, The more I learn

Sometimes, I stop and take a picture to capture this moment…
The moment before and after things change…

“Don’t ask if your dreams are crazy, ask if they are crazy enough.” – @kaepernick7



This amazing piece of art by @ava is the most powerful thing that I’ve seen on social media this morning.

After I finished crying I knew what I needed to do today.
Walk into my classroom at my best.
Not the best black, fat, female, queer teacher.
THE
BEST
TEACHER
THEY’VE
EVER
HAD!

I want to be the one who helps them believe they can, they will and provide the tools that will get them there.

So what will YOU do with it?

Hey y’all hey!
Happy #FatFatFridays!!!

Let’s Get Free!

Shout out to this #conversationpiece I got from @mumumansion’s #SweetSummerBookParty (see what happened there).

This shirt bonded me to students and colleagues as we conversed about what getting free looks like.

The day of my interview I wore school colors (unitentionally… but Spirit knew and the interview committee noticed 😁)
Friday was dress down… but I wear #kimonos and #converse like every day…. so…

Hey y’all hey !
Happy Saturday !!

My new normal.

Actually, it’s my old normal and I love it.
💜💜💜

I come alive in the classroom and I had almost forgotten that.
With this full moon in Pisces, my heart is also full as my next adventure manifests.

This week, I made the decision to go from an Instructional #Substitute to a Full Time #Educator and I couldn’t be happier.
(Help me remember this on the inevitable “What the hell was I thinking?!” days.

It’s the right kind of b-a-n-a-n-a-s (did you sing it? I always do.)
as things come together.

I’ll be talking about the new developments more on IG Live/IGTV, but for now I have #TeacherStuff to do.

Hey y’all hey!
Happy Tuesday!
I’ll be answering to “Coach” for the rest of the week.
I’m teaching hysical Education at various schools.

I may trade in #SubSelfie for #TeacherSelfie.
I applied for a permanent position at my favorite school yesterday & booked the interview for tomorrow. It’s a position where I can be useful and do meaningful work with the students who I judge need it most (pray with me).

Today, I played Shark and Minnows and caught the fastest child in class (it requires an Epsom Salt soak now… cuz old!)

Hey y’all hey!
Happy Monday!
1st #SubSelfie of the New School Year!
So happy school is back in session and I spent my first day with some of my fave BBs.
Today, I was “Coach!”
My first teaching job was actually as a PE teacher, so I was right at home.
Today, some babies learned to double dutch.
Because for me a #professionalblackgirl dd, tetherball and handball are rites of passage.
