Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This week, allow me to remind you that Black History Month is right around the corner!

Given the past two years there are even more resources available to us, even more plans and ideas to integrate, include, and invigorate our instruction.

I hope you enjoyed your long weekend–much deserved–and I can’t wait to hear about what you’ve done in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., and I can’t for next month . . . all the months!

Two summers ago I was involved in a career & technical program for middle school students–this specific program was designed for, and geared for, middle school English Language Learners. The premise and basis of the program: build language through career & technical learning.

This experience was everything; I loved everything about it.

Pictured below are final projects in one of the cosmetology classes–what do you think?

Things I never knew . . .

Installment #16:

Five things I never knew . . . until I became a teacher:

  • that teachers actually worked over the summer
  • that teachers working over the summer are not just working summer school
  • how much work *I NEED* to do over the summer
  • that back-to-school catalogs come out entirely too early
  • how short summer actually is

Things I never knew . . .

Installment #15:

Five things I never knew . . . until I became a teacher:

  • the significance of leap year
  • the power of daylight savings time
  • the strength of a full moon
  • the potential around Friday the 13th
  • the possibility of so much coming together in such a short time 😲
