My New Years resolution for 2018 is to pursue more of my goals! I present to you @ChalkandGumption... a combination of my two greatest passions: teaching and creating. I was scared to put myself in a box as “just a teacher” or “just a creator.” But why not have it both ways? It’s all in the name. Chalk represents teaching as well one of the mediums I use to create various projects. Gumption is what I have within myself to get things done. My initiative and resourcefulness drives me to pursue my goal and chase my dreams. I’m looking forward to see what the new year has in store for me. Use the hashtag: #newyearmoregoals if you’re planning on crushing 2018!!!

A break is a break, right?! 😂Although I am starting to plan for our New Years celebration when we get back next week. Anyone else celebrate the New Year with their students? PC: @bored_teachers

Even after growing up in NY my entire life and seeing the tree a dozen times, this view NEVER gets old. Nothing better than Christmas in NY. .

THIS! I saw a fellow teacher repost this and it spoke to me. Family literacy is everything. It’s where we learn our primary form of discourse. This discourse shapes us into literate beings. Literacy is NOT reading. It’s social, emotional, behavioral, and academic. It is very important we as teachers understand the diversity of our students. Opening up our minds to their own family literacy will teach us a lot. #literacynerd 👩🏻‍🏫 📚.

This resonated with me today. I’m constantly asking myself... am I doing enough? Am I doing what’s write by my students? How can I balance what administration wants and what is right? Am I failing my students? Am I wear I want to be as an educator. I ask myself these questions but when I think about it I remember that I did not choose teaching for summers off or winter break. I chose to become a teacher because I promised myself I would fight to do right by kids. Not administration, not politics... kids. I did not become a teacher to compete with other teachers. It’s not always easy, but I didn’t choose this job because it was easy. It’s hard, exhausting, and emotionally draining at times... but I wouldn’t trade it for a minute. I’m on my way to finding a balance. ❤️
