I am celebrating #earthday all week by having my students read about and discuss our oceans. Today we read an article from @newsela about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. We then used a @thinkingmaps #bracemap to break down the parts of the Garbage Patch. Students were amazed and shocked at all things things that end up in the Garbage Patch. Our #frameofreference included "I learned..." and "We can solve the problem by..." #teachersofinstagram #urbaneducator #theteachinglifestyle #informedcitizens

I worked hard for this prosecco 🥂
Spent the afternoon, organizing files and completing the last of Spring 2018 assignments. My first semester as a full time college student has been life changing to say the least, many curveballs thrown my way but overall an amazing experience with an end result that reflects all of my hard work. But, it went by so fast! I'm ready for Summer, not so much Fall but one day at a time. All the things are done, just a few more classes to show up for because I can't ruin my perfect attendance 🤣 Breathing a sigh of relief and praying about the next few months ahead. I love you @tattoojohnaon. Your encouragement has been unwavering and I couldn't do this without you! #ontothenext #tobecontinued
First day of school, my second year teaching. I'm a second grade teacher y'all !! 🎉
80/80 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 I wore this shirt intentional. Because that’s what this program is. P O W E R FU L It’ll push you to your limit, but you’ll push past them and find new ones. You’ll want to quit at times, but you won’t. You’ll power through. You’ll find inner strength you never knew you had. Go check out my story to see how I felt prior to pushing play today. I shared the all the feelings I was feeling! Hint hint.. there were tears. ❤️
#teachermyth, we get 3 months off for summer "vacation." You might imagine us kicking back on a beach with some sort of tropical drink in hand? Let's come down to reality. Most teachers get maybe a whole week to themselves as a "vacation" (i.e. I went somewhere and did zero school related work. More like I binge watched Netflix while feeling guilty about not preparing enough for the upcoming school year!) .... The rest of the time starts right after the last day of school with summer planning meetings, team meetings, summer school meetings, teaching summer school for an entire month (because we're broke, but also because we want to close the summer loss gap), planning on our own for the upcoming school year, working a 2nd or 3rd job because our lump sum money (that was taken out of our normal paychecks throughout the year) hasn't arrived yet, and so much more! *See also spending that lump sum money on school supplies because we know we need them! You've seen us at Wal-Mart buying all the crayons, don't lie! .... Also, THREE months?! Not sure who is getting three whole months off. School ends May 25ish here in AZ, and starts up again the first weeks of August. Nowhere near 3 months! .... Teachers are required to report back to school a whole week before it's due to start for, you guessed it, more meetings! .... So please, let's bust this myth that all us teachers jet set off to some exotic locale for 90 days of blissful rest! In our dreams! #redfored #teacherlife #teachersofig #teachertweets #teachervlogger #urbaneducator #rojoparaed #whatstheplanaz @dougducey @ktarnews
So much truth to this statement. Discipline is one of the many reasons I was able to stay the course over the last 93 days. I wasn’t always disciplined. In fact, there was a time I used to restart every Monday because my hard work would go down the drain every weekend. There was even a time I’d start on Monday, only to have fallen off track by Tuesday or Wednesday. No, really, I promise. It was one of the darkest points of my life. The good news is discipline can be learned, just like anything else! I’ve learned some tips and tricks to make it easier to get started and to stay on track over the last few years. And even more over the last 3 months. What’s the hardest part of eating healthy and exercising for you? Drop a comment below and I’ll see if I can help! 💕
Listen these pictures are from about 4️⃣ years ago now. I fell and tore both patella tendons at the same time. This hospital bed was in my house for 8 months. Those braces were on my legs for 1️⃣0️⃣ months. Locked out for the first two months. During this time my wife was a rock star. She did everything for me. At this time I made sure I ate well because well 8 months of nothing but PT you gain some weight. After this time I wanted a quick fix, something that would just take the weight off. Guess what those quick fixes helped for a few months. Nothing stuck and I got to 365 and was totally embarrassed. Fast forward to FASTer Way To Fat Loss...I’m eating real food. I’m not depriving my self and I am at 310 pounds and losing every day. I am not sure where I’d be without the program. My blood work is coming back better and better every 6 weeks. I am on a med that I must check for any issues. Well anything that was an issue as been Fixed. Blood sugar from 120 down to 80. This works LONG TERM. You see results that are none scale wins in the FIRST WEEK. I went from tired alllll the time to having too much energy, so says some coworkers hahaha. Lose with me.

This picture was taken the last weekend before my journey of focusing on self care, health and fitness began. I expected to see physical changes, but I couldn’t anticipate or imagine the mental changes that would take place, the friendships that would be made or how good I would feel each day. I have 2 workouts left (I started 2 days after most people) and seeing the results come in over the last 2 days make me so proud of each and everyone of us. The results I’ve seen are amazing. No one is the same as they were 3 months ago. We have all changed for the better. And the most amazing part is that no one is finished. Everyone wants to keep going, to see what comes next, to grow stronger and continue improving. Are you ready to join us? My next group starts April 30! That’s plenty of time to get prepared AND transform your life by summer (for those of you wanting a physical transformation). It won’t be easy, but I promise it WILL be worth it! ❤️ Message me for details.
People ask how long is your food prep on Sunday for two adults. ONE HOUR. If you join my group April 23rd you too will learn to do this. Come join me!!!!

You can do hard things!! This mornings workout was one of the hardest of my life. I pushed myself. It was the last time doing these particularly exercises and I wanted to give it 110%. And I definitely did. I literally gave myself a pep talk in between every move during round 2. Every time I thought “I can’t do this”, I switched it to “I can do this. I will do this. I’ve got this.” And I did. Believe in yourself. Push yourself a little more, a little harder. You can do it too!
The other day, one of my lovely kiddos handed me this paper. I read it as they got their chromebooks out for testing and MAN did it make me tear up! . . Although it’s 100% copied from the internet, the thought counts even more. The fact that she thinks about me when out of school and wants something to put a smile on my face means everything. . . . . #healthyteacher #healthyteachers #teacherappreciation #studentnotes #teachergifts #urbanedu #urbaneducation #firstyearteacher #urbaneducator #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #instateacher #teachertribe #iteachtoo #iteachthird #iteachfourth #iteachfifth #iteachreading #readingteacher
Teachable Moment ♥️ One glue stick and three eager students ready to make a Shape Monster...no problem! Perfect opportunity to model and practice sharing, taking turns, and using kind words. So proud of the little gentleman that offered to share with the ladies at our table ♥️ And....our 2nd grade regular education teacher rocks!!! Love the ways she incorporates YOTA (Year Of The Arts) into her lessons! Oh, and notice that she also integrated writing into her math lesson! 😍 She is on point! Such a gift she has for keeping all students interested and engaged !!! We ♥️ you Ms. P!!! 😊 #teachermoment #urbaneducator #specialeducation #mpsproud #teacherbyday #yearofthearts
A selfie I didn't have time to post last week...We've been busy with testing at the 9-5 gig. The vibe has been hectic but I've been so calm, even during Mercury retrograde and blasts from the past trying to test the waters. What's my secret? Yoga, meditation, knowing when to say no, sleep and you'll rarely catch me without crystals, Florida water, a talisman, a holy book or sage. I will rebuke foolishness metaphysically in a heartbeat these days! I work in a pretty crazy place but these things keep me grounded. I've only had half a melt down this year. (If you know my temper you're amazed, lol) Educating, whether it's adults or kids is tough! Shit, life is tough! If you have a high stress job or a hectic life , hold fast to your spirituality, no matter what it may be. (My job is so stressful I rely on every good spirit I can! ) Namaste! 🕉🙇🏽‍♀️ #fbf #flashbackfridays #naturalhair #4ahair #4bhair #4chair #oshunschild #eleke #ifa #authorsofIG #yogi #aprilmeditationchallenge #meditation #authors #blackwriters #Chicago #ChicagoTeachers #urbaneducator #chicagowriters #urbanfiction #wordsmith #writer #professor #teacher #educatorsofcolor #educatorsofIG #diaryofabadteacher #badteacher #hotforteacher
Tonight my student won the history challenge at our testing night. I was screaming and clapping for him. The rest of my students just laughed because they were embarrassed Lol! #wynning2018 #blackteachersmatter #urbaneducation #urbaneducator #highschoolteacher #historyteacher
