Our first unit in American Studies is just about wrapped up SO starting tomorrow, we’ll be diving into The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian 🙄🙄🙄Although this book exposes my students to a very important storyline in the American experience, it is not my fav. It’s just... I was never a huge fan of the book in the first place, but when the allegations came out about Alexie, the bad taste in my mouth intensified. Do any of you teach texts you hate? Just curious 😆 #iteachela#iteachtoo#teachersofinstagram#teachersofig#teachersfollowsteachers#secondaryela#highschoolenglish
Sunday’s are for church, relaxation, naps, and wrinkled clothes.
Don’t forget to give yourself one day a week to really relax and unwind. You’re a better mom, teacher, friend, etc when you’ve remembered to taken care of yourself first.
If I could live in wrinkled t-shirt’s, yoga pants, and baseball caps I would. Don’t get me wrong, I love putting a cute outfit together like any girl. But, once I’m dressed up (like after church for example), I’m immediately back in comfy clothes when I come home.
So tell me...if you could only pick one outfit to wear every day for the rest of your life, what would you choose and why? How do you relax on your Sunday?
After about a year on instagram I am making the leap and creating a page dedicated to my teaching! So let me introduce myself...
1) I have been teaching since 2000. 2) I have taught every grade 6-12 except 8th and high school is for sure my happy place. 3) I teach Social Studies and have taught Geography, World History, US History, Pacific Island History, Hawaiian History, Practical Law and AVID. Currently teaching Honors US. 4) My husband was in the Navy so I have taught in SC, HI, IN and now GA. I have also started the school year mid-year three times in my career. I am nothing if not flexible. 5) Sports are my passion so coaching is a natural fit for me. Currently coaching tennis. It is the one sport I did NOT play when I was in school. Loving it anyway. 🎾
6) I think my future may be in administration. I want to work behind the scenes to improve the systems that impact students and teachers on a daily basis. So that is a little about me over here doing my thing. Catch you later! #iteachtoo#teachersofinstagram#teachersfollowsteachers#teachers
