I know that the thing under my bed doesn’t exist. But I also know that if I keep my feet under the blanket, it won’t grab my ankle.

See the teacher is his natural habitat. Look how he has made himself comfortable spending money on not his offspring. Amazing creatures, teachers are.

Nothing says love like tacos.

Making dinner for the newest guy in my life for the first time since I cooked him hamburger helper our junior year of college.

Hopefully this is a step up.

What would you do if your principal

Banned the following things:

- casual fridays
- open toed shoes (believe me I get these above are small issues)
- word searches and puzzles for students
- scissors in the classroom
- crayons in the classroom

And what if that same principal
- took away your entire budget
- except the art teacher, who got $100 for the entire year for 800 students
- told the secretary she had to stand at her desk all day, even when doing paperwork or typing
- had to approve every copy you were making, which is limited to only 200 sheets of paper for the month

This is a true story. My mom retired a few years back from teaching, and the school she taught at for 20+ years (and where I went to elementary school) just got a new principal.

My mother is in very close contact with the teachers there. One teacher said “going to school feels like a funeral. No one is smiling, there is no laughter. Teachers are crying in the bathroom.”

I am broken hearted for that school.

Wow. 

Three years ago today was my first day teaching with a group of 4th graders.

First year teachers,  the first day might not go how you imagined. Or the first week. Or month.

And that’s okay. Don’t let it beat you up. Don’t let it defeat you. Tomorrow is always a new day. You might not be where you want, but you have already come so far. 

You got this. Really. And #education is always here if you feel like you don’t.

Watch for me on YouTube

There’s a group of guys filming around NYC today with a giant bucket and running up to strangers and pretending to dump it on them.

Yep. I fell for it and provided a very dramatic scream.

Lady on the bus next to me: Tell me again- what are you not going to do in daycare today?
Little boy: I will not hit the teacher with a light saber.
Lady: And why are you not going to hit her with a light saber?
Boy: It is my toy, and my choice, but if I hit her with the light saber, I'm acting like a Sith.
Lady: Do you want to be a Sith?
Boy: No! I am Obi-Wan!
