Imagine this. You’re standing in front of your class. You’re about to teach start your lesson about segregation by law. You know, de jure segregation. You’re looking out at your students. Ok, let’s be real. You’re most likely sitting in front of your computer looking at your students on Zoom. Or in my case, Google […]
I wasn’t going to say anything. I really wasn’t. Then a thought flashed through my brain. If we were in school right now, the kids would definitely come to class and ask: “Miss, what you do you think about Kanye running for president?” or “Did you hear Kanye is running for president?” or “Can we […]
A few weeks ago, I posted on Facebook asking people to tell me topics they’d like me to write about. One of my friends responded with Juneteenth. I immediately thought, “ooof, I know what it is, but I don’t know much about it.” As someone who has always been interested in black history and issues […]
“Finally!” I said to myself as I walked up to the counter. This was my third time at the DMV to get a Tennessee license. Yup, you read that right. THIRD. I try to stay positive most of the time, but I couldn’t help thinking, “no wonder everyone hates the DMV.” Long story short, I […]
Do you believe in magic? Well, the Electoral College sure does. It’s a magic number, and it’s 270. That’s the number you’ll see sprawled across the top of all the news channels on election day. It’s the number of electoral votes a candidate needs to win the presidential election. So I figured I’ll explain the […]
Warning, this isn’t like my usual upbeat and positive posts. I’m gettin’ real. And hey. I might just keep on keepin’ in real. A note: when I’m mentioning white people, I am talking about the racist white people of the time I am discussing. Now that that’s out of the way… Recently I saw a […]
Imagine… it’s the middle of July, and one of those back to school commercials comes on tv. The first thing that pops into your head is “WTF, it’s not even August yet. Why are they showing back-to-school commercials?! Summer vacation just started. We JUST got out of school.” Welp, I finally know the reason. There […]
Teaching is one of those careers where everything thinks they’re an expert. Hey, we’ve all been to school, we know all about education and have an opinion about it. All teachers have been there. You know, when you tell someone you’re a teacher, and they respond with something cliché like, “Wow, I could never do […]
Is everyone about to pull their hair out with this whole remote learning thing, or is it just me? You are? That’s what I thought. My district didn’t start any real remote learning until about two weeks ago. When they first unveiled out the new remote learning strategy, I was like, “wait a minute. We’ve […]
I’ve got to admit; I’m pretty good at time management. I haven’t always been great at it, so I created three steps for effective management. Many of the strategies come from ten years working for a direct sales company. That experience taught me strategies and steps to ensure that I’m more efficient with my time. […]
