I finished another book today. And as this quote suggests, books have gotten me through some moments of darkness. 6 months of Covid-19 lockdown to be specific, and they continue to carry me through these strange times.
I heard so many bad things about the class I’ve just inherited and wasn’t sure I was up for the challenge. And yet, here I am today reflecting on our extremely busy, but good day and I couldn’t be more thankful that I’m all those Black and Brown babies teacher.
15 minutes of yoga to start and end my day makes up for not drinking any water until 4:45pm right? 🤦🏾♀️🤷🏾♀️
Three more teachers have been deployed to virtual school and their classes have been collapsed. Mine was one of them. Again, I mourn.
I was today years old when I truly learned how little the education system cares about the well-being of those it’s supposed to care for. It’s never been so clear, so blatantly obvious that they simply do not care. Not about their students and not about their educators and education workers.
