It really warms my heart to see the library looking out for its community in the light of everything happening in Ferguson.

(Source 1, 2.)

EDIT: Be sure to follow Ferguson Library on twitter.

I’m so proud of a student today!

The girl I work with the most (L) was an excellent role model today! I am so proud of her for holding it together when others were not. She waited patiently for me on a walk when another student was not doing what she was supposed to be doing and L tried to show her what she should do when I asked for L help. 

I am so super proud of her.

Overall, today was still rough. Definitely better, but still chaotic. 

In reference to the previous post, I love my job, this is just not what any of us expected.

Stressssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

Petition for the creation of high school/secondary teacher supply stores so that everything does NOT have A GOSHDAMN SMILEY FACE ON IT

I’d help fund this. So tired of secondary schools being underrepresented in stores.

Second petition to have bookstores categorize education sections according to grade level AND subject area (finding ELA stuff is like finding treasure without the damn map)

Yes!

First Day of School was AWFUL!

Compliance trials all day. ALLLLLLL day! For EVERY LITTLE THING!!! Almost every kid! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!

You know things are bad when even the special educator says she didn’t expect this and is overwhelmed and scared for tomorrow when the rest of the students join us. 

I ended the day with, “WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!”

The district was supposed to give us 2 more para positions this year (mine from last year and someone else we had last year). We had a para step down, so I transferred back. We were told we get another para, but the position hasn’t been posted yet. They’re still fighting for para #5. 

This is a safety issue. 2 violent kids. They each need a one-on-one, plus we have two other students who need a one-on-one, and a para out for the other 6th graders, 7th graders, and 8th graders, plus the ILC teachers in their rooms.

But the board can afford a highly expensive unnecessary attorney (they had a usual district one, but hired an extra). I am SO ANGRY I NEED PIE RIGHT NOW!

(From what I understand, the police thought they heard a gunshot and started throwing tear gas into the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong)

schools in Ferguson area will remain close until next week and many students are falling behind

This shit is what really gets me more than anything. The support from within the community.

Gloria and Betsy, you are good people. I hope your pupils respect and appreciate you.

While this may not be one of our traditional success stories, this is quite possibly further evidence that we have always been here and that in and of itself is a success for our community.

Trans Female Skeleton


Archaeologists have discovered a 5,000-year-old skeleton which they believe may be the remains of a transgender person.

Men’s bodies from that age and culture are usually found buried with their heads towards the west and with weapons.

But this skeleton was found with its head towards the east and was surrounded by domestic jugs – as women’s bodies from the time are usually found.

At a press conference in Prague yesterday, archaeologists theorised that the person may have been transgender or ‘third sex’.

Kamila Remišová, the head of the research team, said: “From history and ethnology, we know that when a culture had strict burial rules they never made mistakes with these sort of things.”

The article also states that:

This is not the first time a skeleton has been found buried as a member of the opposite sex. One woman from the Mesolithic period, who was assumed to be a warrior, was found buried with weapons.

“transgender is new trend” go fuck yourselvea

Trans people have always existed.

Hello, fellow educators!
In May 2012 I earned my bachelor's degree in English Education (5-12) and I currently work as an Intensive Learning Center paraprofessional at a middle school. Follow me as I venture into the world of teaching: continuing the applying process, re-writing resumes and cover letters, and preparing for interviews! Most of my posts are education or English related. Occasionally I find something I love very much or believe is very important, so I cannot help but share it!

Feel free to share your experiences as a future, present, or former teacher. All advice is welcome. :)
