Evidence of #education on my desk in the form of growth mindset reminders…

Oh my gosh. I need to do this.

The weight that I borrowed from the athletic department is still on my desk.

Tomorrow I’m giving a summative assessment that may be either introduced or concluded with emphatic gestures featuring a hand weight. But this makes me happy to see.

My amazing instructional coach just sent these websites my way. Y’all, if you need mentor texts or passages for assessments you’ve got to go check them out.

See? Writing reading assessments late in the evening with tumblr in the first tab background is actually highly effective teacher-ing. 

Super bien!

Intersectionality.

Just FYI esl and special ed do not occur independently. 75% of my caseload is esl and special ed. They keep trying to tell me that legally I don’t have to support in Spanish. This seems wrong. My students are guaranteed rights in two categories, but we have not seemingly figured out how to blend the two. Also, disabilities occur in two languages. Just in case you weren’t sure. Learning disabilities don’t just disappear in other languages….

Oh, and 50% of their instruction is in Spanish. So, you mean to tell me that my students with significant learning disabilities don’t get support then?

Well, I am just going to keep on keeping on with supporting them.

My hot water in my shower will not turn off.

It has been almost a week. I have called and called. They posted signs that they were coming Mon and Tues to look at plumbing. But it still isn’t fixed.

Also, they put a sign up that tues-thurs they will be removing ac units. They put it up today, and they were clearly in my bedroom, but I didn’t clear a space because I didn’t know they were coming.

I literally need more hours in the day to be a human and a teacher at the same time.

How I know me and my teacher roommate are going to be just fine…

She brought me a donut this morning “because you’re supposed to starve a fever and feed a cold.”
