Words I needed today. Reposted from @glennondoyle The above passage is from my book, Love Warrior. Pain is often the receipt of love. It’s proof we paid the price. It’s holy, perfect, exactly right. So let’s quit grabbing away each other’s pain and instead just say: I see your pain. Thank you for trusting me enough to share it with me. I’ll sit with you in it. Love you.

It’s time for another #FeaturedTeacherFriday! 📚🥰💪🏻Today’s teacher is Tej Carbone from Florida. Tej is both a teacher and a school social worker and I am so inspired by her attitude! Here’s her story: “Hi! I’m a 33 year old former licensed clinical social worker that felt the call to the classroom. I spent this past year studying and taking certification exams in order to obtain certification as an educator. I’m now certified as a school social worker, k-6 teacher and ESE. I will be teaching 2nd and 3rd grade in a small, special needs inclusion tuition-free charter school. Half of our students have documented disabilities, and a majority of our students are on free/reduced lunch. Our salaries are even less than that of our public school counterparts, yet we serve such a unique population. We have students ranging from profound intellectual disabilities all the way up to gifted, working together in the same class. This provides a unique set of challenges , but one which I am so excited to take on. As this is my first year teaching, I do not have any income with which to supply my classroom with necessities (my first check won’t come until late August), but I would love to create a calming space, with resources for ALL of my students to be successful. I will be teaching at UCP of Central Florida, Bailes campus. We are moving to a new building this year and expanding, so I’m getting a brand new classroom. This is exciting but also means I’m starting from scratch. Thank you so much for your help!” Her wishlist will be in my bio and once again- sending a massive smooch to everyone who reads this and feels inspired to help. xo! 💗🙌🏻📚

This #FeaturedTeacherFriday 📚we are headed to Texas! Lanie’s attitude of compassion & inclusivity is amazing. Here’s her story: “I was born and raised in Austin, Texas! I have been teaching 4th grade for 5 years and I love every minute of it! My students are my world! They are loving, caring, compassionate, inquisitive, and sometimes hyper! As a class, we build a community so we can rely on one another. We build trust with restorative circles and hold each other accountable for our actions! I work with a very diverse population and most students come from low-income families. The schools I’ve worked at are Title 1 schools, meaning that they receive federally funded support. For some of my students, school is the only place they will receive a meal and have as a safe space with someone to trust. Throughout the year I personally purchase my students supplies, backpacks, coats, clothes, books and snacks. While my students are my family, I’m also very proud of the family my wife and I have built. I am out to my students and their parents, and while it’s been challenging at times, it’s worth it. It’s important to me that students have reassurance that it’s okay to be ‘different.’ This year I had a student tell me they were scared of life and who they were until they found out I was a lesbian. She said I made her realize that she wasn’t weird and that something wasn’t wrong with her. She said that reassurance saved her life. If I can save one child’s life, that’s enough for me. This next year I will be starting a GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) at Howard Norman Elementary in Hutto, TX for any and all that would like to join! I want to make sure students have a safe place to go to. All kids need to learn about acceptance, empathy, kindness.  With the GSA and in my classroom, all of these things will be taught! Thank you for any and all help!” Lanie’s wishlist will be in my bio. Oh, and I love you guys. 💗💪🏻🧠📚

Happy #FeaturedTeacherFriday 📚everyone! I know it’s summer break, but teachers still need school supplies and I really love doing these posts! So please meet Veronica! “My name is Veronica Landa and I have been working at Turtle Hook Middle School on Long Island, New York as a 6th and 7th grade Spanish teacher. These three years have truly been the greatest years of my life! I am very passionate about teaching a diverse group of students and strive to make a difference in their lives.  Attending graduate school two nights a week has also helped me grow as a teacher and provide the best education for my students. My school is a Title 1 school. The population mainly consists of African American and Hispanic students. The majority of the students at THMS are economically disadvantaged and come from low-income families. Students are also given free breakfast and lunch. Many of my students struggle to afford books and other resources needed to succeed academically. Every day I strive to teach, guide, and support my students to become successful individuals.  As a Spanish teacher, students are learning to engage in conversation and expand their knowledge about other cultures in the world. Creating a multicultural classroom teaches students to embrace and respect other cultures. I also incorporate a lot of technology games and videos in my classroom to motivate and engage my students throughout each lesson. This opportunity would help me incorporate books to expand my Spanish library and enhance students’ reading comprehension skills. My students will also be able to improve their speaking and writing skills and knowledge of the Hispanic culture. I truly love teaching Spanish and enjoy learning about my students each and every day. Any help would be greatly appreciated!” Her wishlist will be in my bio. Love you guys. 🧠📚💪🏻

I’m so happy it’s #FeaturedTeacherFriday! #TGIFTF 📚🧠👍🏻 Meet Adam Benoit from Lincolnton, NC! Heres the message he sent me... “I have been a high school science teacher since 2005; I specialize in physics, but also teach chemistry, physical science, earth & environmental science, and pre-caclulus (one time). I love science, and I love teaching science, but I feel that my classroom is lacking in supplies that would go a long way to improve interest in STEM among my students. I have recently introduced 3D printing and computer programming into my classroom through a grant that was awarded to the school, and would love to incorporate it and other STEM related fields, to a greater extent. The lack of standard supplies and apparatus make it difficult to do so because the students need to learn the scientific and engineering skills within the curriculum in order to apply them to these other fields. When I first arrived at Lincolnton High School each department had a budget to buy supplies.  A few years later, that was taken away due to state budget cuts and getting content specific supplies has become a hassle because there wasn't enough money in the budget to go around.  This has resulted in myself, and most of my colleagues, supplying our classrooms ourselves.  This is difficult for the classes I teach, and I am sure most science teachers would agree, because many of the supplies are consumable and expensive.  Despite that, my colleagues and I have persisted to buy supplies with our own money to be sure that our students get a proper science education. Thank you for this opportunity!” The wishlist for Adam’s classroom is in my bio. (I just sent him the printer!) 📚💗💥💪🏻 love you guys for reading and helping.

How. Cool. Is. This? . . While the tiny team is super excited we are waiting to tell The Chef until after his two week thank you week is over because to be honest he is completely consumed with getting all of his thank yous just right and we think this would over stimulate him at the moment. (He still doesn’t understand the K next to our followers number and the team has allowed him to assume we’re still pretty small potato’s so he doesn’t get overwhelmed!)

This #FeaturedTeacherFriday we’re going to Brooklyn, NY! Meet Yaskara Ortiz Ramirez! 📚🧠💪🏻 her wishlist will be in my bio and THANK U to everyone who reads and helps!! “I work in a Title 1 school in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, NY. To say I LOVE my school and the community we serve is an understatement!  Our community is so diverse and so rich in history and is a beautiful mix of cultures. At the age of 29 after I was married and had already had my two boys (and my little girl was on the way) I decided to leave the corporate world, go back to school and get my Masters degree in Education. Remembering the difference my teachers made in my life when I came to this country at the age of nine pushed me to also get the Bilingual extension. I taught third grade for five years and am currently in my first year of teaching Kindergarten...boy are they energetic! I love my little Supers!  Seeing them grow and having a hand in shaping them into good well rounded human beings fills my heart each and every day! My students are eager learners who are working towards being fully bilingual and bi-literate. In addition to all that, they are learning how to read! Recently our school lost our Magnet Grant. We are now a Magnet School without the Magnet money.  Our Tech Lab, Smart Boards, and Library could use a lot of love and care AKA updating.  Our classrooms, especially those that are Dual Language lack the proper resources such as updated classroom library books and computers/iPads.  Every year (if we’re lucky) teachers receive a $200-$250 stipend to help offset what we spend to prepare our classrooms at the start of the school year...I spend that on pencils alone!  I pour heart and soul (and many paychecks) into my (school) children while still making sure that my own children feel loved.  It is a tough balance, but I can’t say that I could see myself doing anything else.”

It’s #FeaturedTeacherFriday!! Meet Brenna Frost, a 4th grade teacher at Elk Meadow Elementary in Bend, OR. Today also happens to be her last day of school, but she can store all the goodies from her wishlist safely until next year! 👍🏻 “I've been teaching at the elementary level for 13 years. I would describe myself as persistent and passionate about providing my students with a positive school experience each day. My school is a K-5, Title 1 school, meaning many of our families are working incredibly hard each day and are also in need. Approximately 50% of the students receive free/reduced-price lunch at our school. My passion for helping, celebrating, and honoring students with neurodiversities is very personal- My son is on the autism spectrum. He was diagnosed with Asperger's when he was 7 years old. Being his mom makes me incredibly proud. Being his mom has made me a better teacher. He showed me that being different is a good thing. He showed me that kids like him have unique ways of thinking and that makes the world a better, more interesting place to be. Year after year I teach incredible, diverse students. Six languages are spoken at our school! I love my students and their unique minds! Honoring and embracing our differences, including neurological differences like autism, sensory processing disorder, and anxiety is key to the success of all young people. I truly believe that the world would be a boring place if our brains were all the same. By providing my amazing students with sensory seating options, calming fidgets, painting supplies, and some really powerful books about feelings, I can better support all of my students year after year. Items like weighted lap blankets, wobble stools, and other sensory-friendly classroom tools can help kids feel peaceful, safe, and focused at school. The items on my wishlist can soothe, heal, and bring peace and happiness to kids! And I'd love help getting more snacks for my students! I try to give them the best vers

Fridays are the best days because I get to feature an amazing teacher. Today’s #FeaturedTeacherFriday is Lindsey Henry, who teaches science at the STEAM lab at Tahoe Valley Elementary School in CA. Here’s her story: “My door is always open for kids to come and just be. With the daily pressures of life the kids in my school know they can trust Mrs. Henry to listen to them & love on them no matter what. Tahoe Valley has a student population of 75% free & reduced lunch. Out of 397 students 54 of them are McKinney Vento kiddos. This means they do not have a stable living environment & sometimes are moving around monthly or even weekly. 30% of our school population are English Language learners. Our school science program has been trying to get off the ground for some time now & finally, we have gained the STEAM (pun intended) necessary to incorporate a science program at each of our 4 elementary schools in our small district. Some schools have more than enough others schools have hardly anything. Our school unfortunately, is one that has less. When it come to the science lab my dream is to allow my students to freely discover why science is so cool! I’d love to see my kiddos be able to play with items that most of them wouldn’t be able to experience otherwise. I want my kids to feel comfortable to learn without shame of making mistakes. In my room mistakes are welcome. I want my kids to be able to have a FAIL: First Attempt In Learning! That way they can feel confident to KEEP trying & to stay curious. Unfortunately, our science lab lacks in tangible tools for the kids to use for discovery. My wishlist has some simple things that will allow for uninhibited learning! Thank you!” Her wishlist will be in my bio and I wanna hug and kiss everyone who reads and helps our amazing teachers! 📚💗💪🏻🧠

This #FeaturedTeacherFriday we’re gonna get musical with a band teacher from Warren, MI. Meet Adam Busuttil! (😘 to Michigan!) “I have been teaching band at Fitzgerald High School, a Title 1 school, for thirteen years. Our program has some amazing dedicated band students. They work hard day in and day out many times on broken or patched together instruments. The program consists of a 9th grade band, symphony band, marching band, and an audition based band called Wind Ensemble, and an after school voluntary Jazz Band we started this year. These students have had a tough year and I am doing everything to make it a positive one for them. They never ask for much and are always very courteous, kind, humble, and grateful for in everything they do and or receive. I am extremely proud of their work and try to help them in anyway I can. I have gotten to know many amazing students and community members since starting at Fitzgerald in 2005. I started teaching because I have always enjoyed working with kids. I am passionate about sharing how exciting music can be, and teaching kids to be more than to just be consumers of music. It’s important to me that students leave my classroom not only with a musical background, but also the ability to think critically about the world around them while also having a better understanding of the arts. Outside of teaching band, my family is my life. After becoming a teacher, I always wanted to be a husband and a dad. I have an amazing wife who is also a teacher, and two beautiful daughters. Thank you for this opportunity!” Adam’s wishlist will be in my bio and thank you THANK YOU to everyone who is inspired to help provide his kiddos with the tools they need to thrive!! 💗📚🎶🎵

It's #FeaturedTeacherFriday 📚😍and today’s teacher was nominated by my friends @NoKidHungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger in America. Meet Mr. Juan Carlos Luna Vargas! He’s a 5th grade teacher at Hughbanks Elementary School in Rialto, CA and he and I share a passion for making sure all kiddos have full tummies so they can reach their full potential. Here’s his story: “I’ve wanted to be a teacher since I was a child, and now have more than 15 years of classroom experience. One thing I love about my job is the opportunity to shape individuals and give my students skills they can take beyond the classroom for a lifetime of success. Food is a big piece of this – kids can’t learn if they’re hungry. I know food is just as important to my students’ ability to learn as pencils and notebooks. Hunger makes it harder to focus and perform academically, and can impact students overall health and well-being. 84% of students at Hughbanks Elementary qualify for free or reduced priced meals, and I know there are kids in my classroom each year that don’t get a meal at home in the morning. We offer Breakfast in the Classroom, which guarantees all of my students can start each day with a healthy meal. I was skeptical at first, but quickly saw that it takes minimal instruction time and the clean-up process is smooth – plus it gives my students quality time to eat together each morning. Now I encourage every elementary school in America to give Breakfast in the Classroom a try! I’m constantly striving to make my classroom comfortable and inviting so we can make the most of that special time we have to eat breakfast together each morning. I have witnessed first-hand the challenges my students have to face in and out of the classroom. Many of my students are one paycheck away from being homeless. Being able to provide them with school supplies means one less thing they have to worry about – it starts them on the right track.” Thank you from the bottom of my 💗To everyone who r

For our final #FeaturedTeacherFriday + #DrSeuss teacher, please meet Kristin Riggs from Belmont, NC! (Don’t worry, we’ll be back to all sorts of other teachers next Friday!) The kind hearts at @DrSeuss & @Randomhousekids will send each of Kristin’s kiddos a copy of #OhThePlacesYoullGo! Her Amazon wishlist is in my bio! “I teach Kindergarten at Page Primary School in Belmont, NC. Our school serves a wonderfully diverse population of students including english-language learners and children with special needs. We have 8 kindergarten classes and 9 first grade classes. Our job is not only to prepare our future leaders academically, but also foster growth across all developmental domains. With mandated state testing (yes, we test our babies the first days of kindergarten) paired with a highly structured and rigorous curriculum, I strive for my kids to still experience as many joys of childhood that we can provide in the classroom! They need dress-up clothes, blocks, paints, games, musical instruments, science materials, and manipulatives! We also need flexible seating to allow them to complete work while still being able to move their wiggly bodies! As a parent to young children you know there is SO MUCH more to a child than their ability to read and write. Language development, fine and gross motor skills, self-help skills, social-emotional development, creative thinking, and confidence building are all integral parts of my kindergarten classroom. You may have heard that teachers in North Carolina are some of the lowest paid teachers in the United States. We easily spend over $1,000 each year purchasing necessities for our classrooms. The craziest part is, there is no where else I’d rather spend my paycheck. Watching a child transform during a school year is the greatest gift. Support to fill our classroom with materials to nurture and stimulate my students would allow my current class, as well as future classes, the opportunity to reach their highest potentials! My gr

It’s time for another #FeaturedTeacherFriday + #DrSeuss Friday! Today we have a kindergarten teacher who has an Amazon wishlist of much needed school supplies, but also the folks at @DrSeuss & @RandomHouseKids will be sending copies of #OhThePlacesYoullGo to each student! We’re asking them to write a note to their future selves & have the teachers send them their books once they graduate high school. (I’m not crying YOU’RE crying.) So here we go…meet Jillian Garcia! “I currently teach kindergarten in the very small town of Trinidad, Colorado. I work for Trinidad School District 1. I teach at Ekhart Elementary, and we pride ourselves in teaching our students how to be leaders. We have implemented the Leader in Me into our daily teaching and we actually became the first K-1 school to become a lighthouse school in Colorado. I believe in my students and love helping them grow and lead. It is amazing to watch our kindergarteners get up and speak and lead our awards assemblies and welcome their parents and community members to our school. I also believe in teaching them more than just our curriculum or what is on the “test,” I love teaching them about the world and my favorite thing to teach is life science. I absolutely love what I do and love making a difference for my students, but in recent years our school numbers have dwindled and so has our budget. Our school needs many maintenance improvements and we do not have the funds for any technology or to give the teachers any type of classroom budget. So for many years I have paid for the things my classroom and students need with my own money. Having the funds for some up to date technology and school supplies would be amazing for my classroom and our school!” The fact that so many teachers pay for their own supplies out of their own pockets shows how amazing teachers truly are. To all who help with their wishlists- 💕you guys.

Today is not just any #FeaturedTeacherFriday… it’s #FTF + #DrSeuss Friday! For the next three kindergarten teachers, the lovely folks at @DrSeuss & @RandomHouseKids will be sending copies of #OhThePlacesYoullGo to each student! We’re asking them to write a note to their future selves & have the teachers send them their books once they graduate high school. 🥰 So here we go… meet Jess & Holly! “I have been a teacher in the Pittsburgh Public Schools system for 18 years now! The last six of those have been with my partner in teaching, Holly Williams (who has been a Kindergarten teacher for 30 years!) at Arsenal Elementary School. Arsenal is an ESL centered school, which means many of our students are learning English along with everything else that is important in Kindergarten. Our school has students from 18 different countries, including some refugees and recent immigrants. In our two classrooms alone, we have children speaking 7 different native languages.  We love the diversity within our school, but also recognize that this can present challenges many other classrooms may not face. Teaching in this school requires much more than following a standard curriculum. Our biggest struggle is having the resources to let our students not only learn, but learn through play! As a team we strive to provide fun ways for our youngest students to achieve. We know that play is the best way for students to learn no matter what language they speak at home! Being a title 1 school with 87% of our students economically disadvantaged, many of our play materials consist of things we put together from the dollar store or items I have "borrowed" from my own 5 year old. Our list includes many items to help our students learn through play along with a few other necessities such as extra uniforms just in case (because 5 year olds). Please consider helping us with our list so our students can learn through the common language of play!” Thank you to everyone who reads these posts and helps and

Heres a program I LOVE: Repost: @pawsitivechangeprogram: (Great work, @zachskow!!) 3 million homeless pets die every year inside America’s shelters. While this is happening, 3 million men, women and kids are incarcerated in America every year. It is my deepest confidence that these statistics can work to cancel one another out. Incarcerated inmate/trainers can save countless lives, while giving themselves a legitimate path to employment when they are released. The pet industry is a 90 billion follow juggernaut, with ample opportunity for our student inmates. In fact, the industry is scrambling to fill a training gap, created by a lack of qualified, experienced trainers. By the time many of our students are released, they will have had thousands of hours one on one experience and hundreds of hours shadowing and directly learning from industry professionals. Additionally, the majority of our students released from prison have joined the pet services and rescue community as a career! At any given time, we have up to 40 dogs living inside of State Prisons and juvenile halls in California. 40 lives which may otherwise have been lost needlessly. In turn, these men and women are gaining much needed confidence and skills to ensure they don’t end up a recidivism statistic. Recidivism is at 80% because former inmates don’t have a path to employment. This program is that path! Help us get #PawsitiveChange into as many institutions as possible by donating at the link in our bio! Thank you! - @zachskow

This #FeaturedTeacherFriday let’s go to rural Idaho! The positivity of the email Katrina sent me made me 💗. Here’s her story: “My name is Katrina Morris and I teach in a very rural school in Idaho, Timberline Elementary. Our school serves two towns in Idaho - Pierce and Weippe. We are a K-12 school with about 200 kids and we are a Title 1 school. I currently have 16 students in my 4th grade class. I love that in our small school the kids taken care of like family. It was a dream of mine to be a teacher from a very young age. I loved to play teacher as a young child and continue to really like my job. There is never a dull moment in teaching! The day flies by. Living wage jobs are hard to come by in our community and that often shows in our classroom population. I battle many of the effects from poverty and childhood ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences) everyday. However, we (teachers and students) do our best each day! One of the most important things to me in my classroom is to develop positive relationships with my students. I am a strong believer that positive relationships foster learning. I love to share my passion for reading, technology, math and history with my students but most of all I hope they leave my class being a better person! While supplies don’t make the classroom it sure would be nice to have stuff when you need it! Thank you!” Her wishlist will be in my bio. Every little bit helps and we’re all in this together. 💪🏻📚❤️

Oh yeah, it’s #FeaturedTeacherFriday! Reading the comments and seeing the love you all share with these teachers each week is THE BEST. Today, meet Kristen Williamson from Omaha, Nebraska. “I’m a 5th grade teacher in a Title 1 School, in Omaha, Nebraska. My class has 23 students (7 boys and 16 girls). In my classroom alone, there are 13 different languages and dialects spoken. I have students from Sudan, Kenya, Cuba, Guatemala, and Mexico. And yes, the most beautiful part of my classroom is the diversity within my students. Is this my dream job? 100% yes. I love every single day of work. The group of students I’m currently working with have given me the most rewarding year of teaching I've ever had. I adore every child in my classroom. Over these past 4 years I have worked really hard to build a great classroom library. Every month, I use part of my paycheck to buy more books for my students. I am not able to build my classroom library as quickly as I wish I could, but I try my best. I’ve spent a lot of time recently looking through my classroom library. It is lacking in so many areas. The area of my room I was once so proud of, is now my biggest mission. My kids deserve books with characters of all races. My kids deserve books with characters who celebrate holidays other than Christian holidays. My kids deserve books that discuss immigration, gay pride, science, technology, refugee journeys, and so many other things. My kids deserve the most amazing classroom library. I want to have a classroom library that meets the interests of EVERY student… and right now, that just isn’t happening. I’ve put together a classroom wish list of new books and supplies that will bring us so much joy (and organization)! These items will serve us in many ways. The first (and most important) way is that my kids will continue to fall in love with reading. The second is that my students can have a classroom that truly feels like a home.

Oh yeah, it’s #FeaturedTeacherFriday #TGIFTF This week I’m featuring a COUPLE, Amy and Jason Oetjens. Two teachers in one day? Heck, yes. (Oh, and they’re from Michigan.) Here’s what Amy shared with me: “My husband and I both work in a rural school in Watervliet on the west side of Michigan just minutes from Lake Michigan. Our district is surrounded by fruit farms (apple, peaches, blueberries, and vineyards). The community is small but definitely a close knit type of community that comes together when a family is in need.  We both teach at Watervliet Middle School, a Title 1 school, that has about 352 students in which 70% of the students qualify for free or reduced lunch. My husband, Jason, is a 7th grade Social Studies teacher and I am a 6th grade Science teacher.  We both have similar teaching styles where we believe students learn by doing or making. My husband is a very charismatic teacher who builds healthy relationships with his students through stories that bring history alive for his students. Many have said that his class is the reason they come to school every day because they know they not only have fun learning but that they are respected in his class. Many of the students we teach are in tough living situations and to know that someone cares for them is very important in the turmoil they live in. In both our classes you will walk into a classroom that is alive with discussions, group collaboration, and creating.He not only teaches but is training to become a reserve police officer to protect our community and school. I believe science is meant to be hands on not lecture. I try to change things up in my classroom.  We learn the history, math, and English behind what they are learning.  I have students research and create from their own minds to show what they have learned by making things.  Every kid learns differently and we both try to encourage the students’ creative minds. We have both tried to set up a Makers space in our classrooms to help foster

Happy #FeaturedTeacherFriday everyone! #TGIFTF! 📚❤️✂️🖍✏️ Today’s Featured Teacher is Malcolm Cumberbatch who was nominated by his wife, Michelle. She’s been keeping this a surprise for him, so Malcolm? SURPRISE! Here’s what Michelle shared about her husband. “I would like to nominate my husband, Malcolm. His passion for teaching shines through everyday with his students and even at home with our three little ones. The journey started back 10 years ago when he was a school bus driver for special needs students after serving as a US Marine. The students on that bus inspired him to go back to school to obtain his degree. Working days to support his newborn and going to school at night he pushed through and obtained his degree in Social Studies with Special Education. I hope for anyone deciding to take that leap, we are here to tell you with dedication it is well worth the investment in yourself to go for a career you are passionate about. He is currently a middle school Special Education Social Studies teacher in Irvington, New Jersey for a title 1 school and loves going to work everyday. He loves being interactive with the kids dressing the part some days depending on the lesson. The kids are always happy to go into Mr. C’s classroom for a snack or to see what crazy tie he has on. He would love to make his room even more comfortable and inviting making a reading area for the kids to take a break and read or even have part of his lesson in this area. The children really respond to movement and taking breaks and this area would be a great way to change up the scenery. Thank you for the opportunity to be featured and thank you on behalf of all the teachers wives as this is such an amazing thing you are doing.” Malcom, thank you for being so supportive and dedicated and for dressing up for your kiddos! Friends, his Amazon Wishlist will be in my bio all day if you’re inspired to help stock his classroom for his kiddos. I love you all. 👏🏻😍

Last week I got to do something really amazing. I visited @pawsitivechangeprogram’s first ever Juvenile Justice program & met with the girls, the trainers, and their pups. I’ve followed this program for ages, but to see it firsthand was really something. In adult prisons, @pawsitivechangeprogram pairs inmates with rescue dogs, and the humans train the animals to be trusting, communicative, and learn skills that will serve them outside the facility walls. (And the animals train their humans to be emotionally open, collaborative, and learn skills that will serve them outside the facility walls.) It’s drastically reduced recidivism and violence, and this is their first juvenile program. The girls learn how to train their dogs, communicate with each other, and share their emotions and experiences. I sat with them, shared some of my own stories, and was completely blown away by the girls’ intelligence and dedication to improving themselves and helping their dogs. Every juvenile facility should have access to programs like this. If you’re inspired, please follow @pawsitivechangeprogram, donate, and support. We’re all in this together.

Meet the VERY ADOPTABLE Veronica Mars! Im honored to have my namesake given to the most busted underdog @marleysmutts & @zachskow have ever taken in ❤ #Repost @zachskow (@get_repost) ・・・ •The Ballad of Veronica Mars• Good Morning, Mutt Fans! My name is Veronica Mars and I’m the newest, #1 most busted up member of the Mutt Militia! I hold that title with pride and distinction because, as you all know, there a lot of busted-up-pups around here! Truth is, I’m not sure what my real name is, I came into the shelter all alone after being hit by what must have been a tow truck pulling a big rig! I mean, how else do you explain a shattered back, pelvis and legs? Ok, fine, it was probably a Toyota Corolla but look at me, I’m 8 inches tall and weigh seven pounds! I like to think maybe my compound fractured legs punctured that punks tires... Calm down, sarcasm heals! They named me Veronica Mars because they said I must be from outer space to take a crash like that and not be killed a bunch of times! I don’t know about that, I’m pretty sure my dad was a chihuahua was from Arvin and my mom is a street Mutt from East Bakersfield... isn’t outer space close to Hollywood? Anyhow, I digress, where were we? Oh yeah, so, after they brought me to the shelter I remembered what my family told me to do if I ever got locked up: bite the first person you see and pack up with your own kind! Yeah, turns that’s terrible advice... First of all, I don’t know what my “kind” is and the only other black chihuahua was deaf and in kidney failure. He just kept staring at me, asking If I knew when the food lady be around around...Not exactly a shot caller....Secondly, how am I supposed to hurt anyone when my adult teeth aren’t even in I’m paralyzed from the waist down...? So, I did the only logical thing I could think of which was poop myself and hope everyone stayed away. That failed too. Turns out, the best thing to do is just chill out and act like you run the place and they give you amazing drugs w

Happy #FeaturedTeacherFriday everyone! 📚🎈Today’s amazing teacher is Tonya Gonzalez from Long Island! Here’s her story: “I have been teaching for two years in a Title 1 school on Long Island, New York as a 4th grade bilingual teacher. These two years have been the best years of my life! I absolutely love what I do and my students have made me a stronger and more positive person. No matter what is happening at home or in their lives, they come into my classroom with a huge smile ready to start the day! My school is a supportive and fun-filled diverse family. My entire class consists of 27 English Language Learners with many being new to the United States. The population is about 70% Hispanic 30% African American and Caucasian. Their journeys here are an inspiration and one of the many reasons I advocate for them. Supplies are very limited in the classroom and my students are struggling to get by at home. Many of our students come from low-income families and qualify for low and reduced lunch, and for some the school is their main source of food. My school tries their best to provide food and resources to our families. I try my best to support my students in whatever they need - school supplies or snacks. Since I teach a bilingual classroom, students have the opportunity to express their knowledge of reading and writing in both English and Spanish. This opportunity would help me provide books for my classroom library, especially in Spanish. This would help me create a multicultural diverse environment in the classroom. I teach my students to be proud of who they are and where they are from! Any help would be amazing!” Let’s help Tonya and her students and send books and snacks galore their way- her amazon wishlist is in my bio THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Love you guys. 💗📚

#TGIFTF! (can we make this a thing?) Our next teacher for #FeaturedTeacherFriday is Annique Webster, a 3rd grade teacher in Harlem/Hamilton Heights. Here’s what she sent to me: “I am a third-grade teacher in a title one school, where the students are new to the country and reading English is new and difficult for most. Our school goal is reading, reading, reading! I would like to support our student’s growth with giving them a variety of books both fiction and non-fiction to instill a love for reading. To keep them tuned in with today’s world I use a lot of technology in my lessons. I have 2 desktops to utilize for a class of 25. With a few portable computers students will be able to conduct independent or group research projects without having to stand around a single desktop computer. I teach in Harlem/Hamilton Heights. It's a community that has changed a lot in the past couple of years - there are families that have lived here for multiple generations, there are families that have just moved from more expensive parts of the city, and there are families who have just step foot into the United States, looking to set down their roots. My school, PS 153, has seen the demographic changes first hand. We're a Title 1 school - which means the majority of our students are on reduced or free lunch. We have a staff that is full of ideas - but we don't always have the means. We have a variety of new initiatives at our school with the intention to expose our students to activities they might not regularly see. I've been teaching for 10 years, and have been teaching at PS 153 for 3 years. This school community is especially important to me because my daughter goes to this school. I want her to have all of the opportunities I had - and more!” Annique’s Amazon wishlist will be in my Bio! I’m so grateful to everyone who helps out with these lists, I can’t even tell you. Love you guys.

My best friend @bobmervak is pure magic. This gem started as a little tune he created with my 3 year old daughter in our living room and has now grown into a full symphonic masterpiece. I am in constant awe of his gift and feel so lucky to know this walking reminder of the power of music. Recording this was some of the most fun I’ve had as a grown up. This delight is now available for your 👂 on iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, anywhere you get your music. Link in bio ❤️🎹👫

It’s my favorite day of the week- #FeaturedTeacherFriday! 📚❤️ Meet Luis Rincones, a 9th & 10th grade Geometry teacher at Port Isabel High School (Title 1) in Port Isabel, TX! "I left the banking industry after twelve years to be a teacher because teaching was the part of my job I enjoyed the most. I did presentations on financial responsibility to local schools and helped my wife, an English teacher, throughout the year decorating her classroom, grading, and looking and purchasing resources. I was fortunate to be welcomed into the Port Isabel High School family and have really enjoyed my first year here. I started a chess club, coach UIL academics, and—most recently—an eSports team to compete against other high schools around the country. We’re the first eSports team in our area. This district falls under Texas's Chapter 41 Wealth Equalization Law which means the state collects half the property taxes collected by the city. This is really tough for the school and the district because 80% of the student population falls under Economically Disadvantaged and 92% of the students are minorities. My class roster consists of 160 students and includes students from a variety of backgrounds and needs like ESL, Special Ed, 504, and others. We are a small school and there is a large group of students that do not fall into the arts or athletics groups. I felt there was something needed to reach them and gaming is one thing many teenagers do. I started an eSports team and they start on Tuesday. We're using the school computers at the game's minimum setting and they seem to work ok. The headsets will be for them to communicate. Our school also uses Summit Learning, which is a blended pedagogy of teacher instruction and self paced math models, a sort of collegiate model like Blackboard. These headsets can also be used in the classroom with students that are further ahead or just at a different pace. My wife is an English teacher of 18 years so you can imagine how much the hous

It’s #FeaturedTeacherFriday, so meet Wendy Tepper! She teaches 2nd & 3rd grade in East Brunswick, NJ and the positivity of her email to me made me swoon. 😍 “My name is Wendy Tepper and I have been teaching for 7 years. You could say I’m like my school’s “cheerleader.” I love spreading great climate and spirit! This year I won my school’s title of Teacher of the Year! My district asked me to think about my “message” as the winner. My message to both educators and the general public would be to believe in the promotion of kindness through diversity and tolerance. To remember that we are “humans first.” My inspiration behind my teaching values is my grandfather; a Holocaust survivor. He had a large part in raising me so that is why it is important that my students believe in kindness, tolerance and diversity. My grandfather is my number one inspiration and what shaped me into the teacher I am today. Were you to step into Room 34 (my classroom), you will find me speaking to my students on a daily basis about “believing in kindness,” and “having empathy”. We start our day with a morning meeting to get to know each other! We share roses (happiness) and thorns (things that bother us) and the students bond as a family. I tell my students and families from day-one that it is of course important for me to teach the fundamentals of reading, writing, math etc., but it is just as critical to teach how to be kind and to choose kindness. Especially in today’s society, what all teachers and the general public need to understand is that kindness, tolerance and the belief in diversity is and should be one of the basics! My school is one of 8 elementary schools in East Brunswick New Jersey. We have an incredibly diverse population and we make it our mission to tap into the potential of every child. We provide support for a variety of students with special needs. Our students come from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds and cultures. My wishlist is geared for students who have

"Better nutrition to children everywhere has been our mission since the beginning — it’s never been and will never be about just feeding children who have a socio-economic advantage." “I’m committed to finding ways of providing healthy food to children who have less access and often limited opportunities. I’m grateful and encouraged by this first and very important step that we’ve made as a company.” BRAVO, @jennifer.garner 🙌🙌🙌

It’s my favorite day of the week — #FeaturedTeacherFriday! 📚😍Meet Courtney Thompson, a high school English teacher from Phoenix, Arizona! She’s been teaching for 7 years, shops at Goodwill w/ her own $ to stock her classroom, and most of her students are the 1st in their families to graduate high school. Here’s what she shared w/ me. “I have spent my entire career teaching in title 1 schools; that’s just a fancy way of saying the majority of our students come from families that are considered low-income and need assistance like fee waivers and free lunch. For many students, the meals they eat at our school are their only source of food and the fee waivers are their only opportunity at participating in sports or taking tests like the ACT/SAT. Something to know about me: I absolutely love to teach. I come from a long line of teachers in my family. I love seeing my students grow in their love for reading and become stronger writers. Though we read a lot of incredible books, all of them are filled with predominantly white characters. Our school population is about 70% Hispanic and 15% African American. So, I would love to be able to stock my library with literature that is culturally diverse, and more relatable to what these teens are dealing with: societal pressures, falling in love (and the subsequent heartbreak), friendships and those trials, being LGBTQ, growing up in poverty and violence, navigating the awkward years that are being a teen. I scour through Goodwill and go to library sales to help get books for my students, but a lot of contemporary fiction is just beyond my budget. I have a lot of students who will be the first in their family to either graduate and/or go to college, and it’s an honor to empower and encourage them on that journey. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for considering me and my classroom!” Her wishlist is in my bio and I love you guys. 📚❤️💪🏻
