Cut my mane about a month ago.
Almost to the finish line... 🙌🏾 But man are the allergens increasing in my classroom. My eyes just start watering for no reason at all lately. 😿 Definitely going to miss my Voyagers as they head into summer and 7th grade life. #9days
Us. 😘
Seeesters! 😻 #ADayWeekend
Happy, Happy Tuesday, ladies, gents, and teacher friends! 👋🏽 I have so many reasons to smile, including finding this dress. Best part: It has pockets. 🤗🤓
This is what happens when you're super excited because: 1) Your child hits his first-ever home run; 2) Your child hits the FIRST home run of the season; 3) Your child hits the game-winning home run. Yes, I'm THAT mom. 😻 This was from last weekend. #forgotIwasrecording #hisbiggestsupporter #mywholeheart #latepost
Happy Hump Day, ladies, gents, and teacher friends. 👋🏽 The 3rd quarter is officially over and I've been spending time wrapping up my grades. The end of a quarter is, of course, EVERY teacher's favorite time of the school year with our most favorite moments being the requests for make-up work and extra-credit. Yeah, NOT! Ha. Anywho, here's to the joy and sadness of moving into the 4th and final quarter. 🤗🤓

Happy, Happy Monday, ladies, gents, and teacher friends! 🤗 Mondays always make me happy, mostly because it allows me to be back in our classroom with the Becksters. Testing season is upon us, so as I type, I working on a remediation plan to ensure that each student I teach experiences the joy of growth. Developing this plan is stressful and tedious work, but I love a good challenge. I’m a sixth grade teacher, but there is just something about differentiation that I love, love, love. 😻 It allows me to remediate and expand on many different levels and for that I’m grateful.

Friday morning reminder to self. Happy as heck to walk around as a melanated woman and a descendants of kings, queens, and intellectual beasts (...don’t mention the slave narrative to me. I know that part, but I’ve worked to unlearn everything I learned in social studies class—talk to me about the Moors or the original definition of American). Glad to know where I stand in the struggle. Peace, love, and HAPPY, HAPPY FRIDAY, ladies, gents, and teacher friends! 😘

In a #perfectteachingworld, I’d teach this short novel about Zane Dupree and his experiences in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. We would have deep conversations about the impacts of race, class, and culture on who we are as people and how we engage, the importance of kindness and courage, and the role of family and responsibility in our everyday lives. If you have a free moment and you love #YALit, you should give it a read. It’s definitely a powerful story with interesting and dynamic characters.

Today was an awesome Thursday. We started our last #wolfunit text, an excerpt from White Fang. My kids were definitely excited to get back into a fictional text with all the nonfiction we’ve been studying lately.
