Our field trips are fee-free for all students. However, schools must  still pay for expensive bus transportation to and from the museum.  If Tacoma's Proposition 1 passes, we'll apply to use the funds for field trip transportation to increase equity and access. We urge you to vote YES for #TacomaCreates!

I've gotten behind in taking photos for my challenge, so I decided to share one from June. There's something that's been on my mind a lot lately and I just can't stop thinking about it.
I heard from someone that someone else close to me doesn't believe my job is a "real job." They don't think that being a photographer is valid occupation because it's not a true craft or trade. It is not important. What I do is not important. And it's hard not to take that to heart. And it hurts. Because I've worked and struggled and worked for someone else doing photography and quit and started again on my own. Because working for someone else is not easy. Owning your own business is not easy, but it is something that I want to do. I'm not a numbers person. I'm terrible at waiting tables. I can't measure things so construction is out. I'm creative. THIS is what I do.
And when I get messages back from parents saying, "Wow! You captured my daughter so well." Or, "The pictures you took of my son are gorgeous! THANK YOU!" That's when I know I've chosen the right career.

When representatives of a state program called AJAC—the Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee—spoke to Hamilton’s welding class at Lincoln, he listened with interest. The AJAC youth apprenticeship program offers high school students a chance to earn a competitive wage, along with high school and college credits, while learning manufacturing and basic job skills.

“My job is to write books to help y’all imagine a better world!” If  you think listening to an author speak about writing sounds boring, you  haven’t heard Kwame Alexander.  This afternoon, the bestselling, award-winning writer kept an  auditorium full of Tacoma students laughing, cheering and singing along  as he talked about writing, poetry, life and love and read from his  latest book, “Swing.” Guitarist and singer Randy Preston added a  soundtrack to the presentation.

Alexander talked  about how, as a young man, poetry helped him impress the girl who  eventually became his wife. And he talked about how publishers rejected  his first book over and over, but he kept trying until a publisher said  yes, and that book went on to win the prestigious Newberry Award.

I was scrolling the TL today and @dhill_22_ posted this pic of the crew. I looked at it for a second and thought “Damn, every one of these dudes have been a part of The Breakfast Club.” I hit up De’ante for the pic and he blessed me. Breakfast Club is more than hoop, it’s about family, relationships, mental health... everything. I met all of these young men as 9th graders, they all ran with different crews & groups. They’ve all faced challenges throughout the last four years. Some of the stories, you wouldn’t believe. It’s all real though. I have made a pact to be there for the rest of their time on Earth. They’ll make mistakes, they’ll learn, they’ll continue to grow. Most importantly? I will continue to learn from them. What they don’t understand is I learn from them probably more than they learn from me. Humility, trust, self reflection... Breakfast Club starts back up in a week at 5:45am, Foss gym. 🙏🏾 .

WARM HEARTS: Last year, then fifth grade student, Jayce Hartman lead his school Skyline Elementary in creating a one-of-a-kind Unified P.E. class. Unified Sports is part of the Special Olympics, bringing people with and without intellectual disabilities together to play sports on the same team.  At the end of the year Jayce passed the torch onto fellow classmates and the class continues this year. Jayce helped create a culture of empathy, bringing people together through games and physical activity, friendships to form lasting bonds for future classes.

Have you hugged a Tacoma teacher today? 🍎❤️ These wonderful people came out IN FORCE 💪🏻 last week, and for seven days, they were on strike for better pay. And do you know what? They got it. Their spirited voices, creative signage, and their steadfastness sent a clear message to the Tacoma Public Schools. These public educators got a very well-deserved 14.4% raise (on average), and excitedly entered their classrooms today for the first day of school. 👏🏻👏🏻 Make no mistake about it, friends. Teachers don’t get into education for the money. They do it because they love children, love seeing a new concept click, love being a child’s advocate, love teaching a child to think for him/herself, love helping a child through something difficult, love experiencing the light in a child’s eyes... Love. Love. Love. ❤️ Have you hugged a Tacoma teacher today? ❤️🍎 #walifestylehomes #welove253 (Thanks to @tmfouts, @sorayasultan, @gexydaf, @curlymeggs, and @allyd23 for posting these great images! 💪🏻👏🏻👊🏻)
Have you hugged a Tacoma teacher today? 🍎❤️ These wonderful people came out IN FORCE 💪🏻 last week, and for seven days, they were on strike for better pay. And do you know what? They got it. Their spirited voices, creative signage, and their steadfastness sent a clear message to the Tacoma Public Schools.

🍎🗣🍎Huge shoutout to all of Tacoma’s fabulous public school teachers who stood up and spoke out to the school district last week for better pay. These wonderful, fearless teachers went on strike for 7 days, and in the end, agreed upon a 14.4% raise in pay (on average). This year’s first bell rang this morning all across Tacoma, and all the students began their first day. The teachers, however, began working long ago, undoubtedly already putting in long hours participating in trainings and conferences, shopping for supplies the district and schools don’t provide them, and setting up their classrooms to create a welcoming, fun, learning environment for their students. ✏️📕🎨 Remember to tell your kiddos to thank their teachers! They’ve helped form the very fiber of this amazing community, and we’re all benefitted by their work! Tacoma teachers rock! 💗👊🏻🍎(Thank you to @j2gcreative for letting us share their image! 🌈) #walifestylehomes #welove253

Just a reminder that our younger pals throughout our community are headed back to school today and throughout the week.

PLEASE leave home early, take your time, and OBEY SCHOOL ZONE SPEED ZONES. A lot of these folks have never walked to school, or are just rusty when it comes to looking out for cars. Give em a break, WE WERE ALL THERE WHEN WE WERE KIDS.

Thanks everybody!  #backtoschool #tacoma #tacomaschools #tacomaschooldistrict #school

We went down to Khi's new school today to show our support to his teachers and School staff! We handed out 100Grand candy bars, and told them they were worth it! We met language teachers, history teachers, math teachers, PE teachers, and school counselors, all of whom were incredibly kind and thankful to have us stop by!

Some perspective. #TacomaSchools #PayOurTeachers #WeTeachTacoma #RedForEd #solidarity ✊🍎 👉 @tacomaschools 👈
Day 2.... still no movement on bargaining. #weteachtacoma #tacomaschools #teachers #tea #tacomastrike
The blame does not fall on our teachers. It’s a result of unfulfilled promises, grossly inadequate pay and lack of regard for #Tacoma’s educators & students.✊🍎 #redfored #tacomaschools #truth #standwithteachers #payourteachers #253 @tacomaschools

📚 PAY Y'ALL UP : my new word for the city in which I live... and what they need to do for the teachers! #puyallup 📚👱🏻‍♀️ Gabi (my 8yo)- MOM what is a #STRIKE 💣 WELL... In my home we don't hide realistic truths or sugar coat things 🤷🏼‍♀️... I played her the #puyallupschooldistrict voicemail and when she didn't quite grasp the it, I explained in terms so she could. 🖤 Our Convo 🖤
Say dad gives me $20 to split between you and brother for your allowance. Now you did chores (and very good) to get this... WELL... Say I hand your bro $10 and you $7...
👱🏻‍♀️🤔 Gabi pipes in... BUT MOM... that's not fair...
🖤 I said you're 100% right, BUT I'm not done... NOW when you ask for your #money 💰... I will either give you an excuse, like tell you "well I paid for your toy last week so just be happy", or explain that over the course of your next few allowances I will get that back to you. 🤔NOW... How would you feel?
👱🏻‍♀️ Gabi replies... I would be mad, upset, and feel like you didn't even care about me.
🖤 Well... THAT IS EXACTLY how your #teacher is feeling... BUT their money isn't for play, it's what they use to LIVE... and well, buy stuff for your #classroom 🤷🏼‍♀️
🖤I then asked... Would you give me attitude? Or #debate and argue with me? (Disregard that you know you're not supposed to)
👱🏻‍♀️ Gabi said well... Yeah 🙄🤷🏼‍♀️...
🖤 I said well THIS is what your #teachers are doing, but in a controlled and more "polite" approach and environment (because obviously a hissy fit won't quite work for them)... so #negotiations 🗣

I did this #firstdayofschool aka #firstdayofstrike sign yesterday but waited for the update last night (was kinda hoping it would be a "Remember that year where the kids were delayed a day" kinda deal)...
I added #Tacoma because we're pretty much adjoined and in this together. #tacomaschooldistrict
