I usually dress up for Harvest but I just wasn’t feeling it and that happens sometimes. I’m ok with not being “in the mood” today because there are other days when I’ll be motivated to be “extra”. Every school year just like every day is different. Just do you however you do you when you’re “in the mood” #tbt #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #blackteacherloop #blackeducatorsrock #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers

#TBT to when there was more day than energy. Blessfully I’m at a point in my life and at a school that encourages #selfcare Don’t let this be you... pour in your cup first. #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #blackteacherloop #blackeducatorsrock #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers

It’s very slowly coming together... I felt overwhelmed because everything wasn’t set up and labeled at the start of school but it happens. Nothing or no one is perfect. Take it from me: Give yourself grace and get things done when you can. As I post this, I remember I need to fix the clock. It was really7:15 when I left. There’s always something to do...so prioritize, schedule, and remember shut it down when necessary. #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #blackteacherloop #blackeducatorsrock #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers

We took our learning outside today. The students not only enjoyed the (change of ) scenery but applying their knowledge in their environment. #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #blackteacherloop #blackeducatorsrock #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers

Each day gets better and better as I get to know the students’ needs and learning styles. We’re getting through our adjustment period and about to go full steam ahead. P.S. I just realized I’m going to need another 1, 2, maybe 30 lanyards from @teachovertherainbow 🤷🏾‍♀️😍 oh and @apron_education clearly I’m about the jean jacket life. #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #blackteacherloop #blackeducatorsrock #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers

I was still a “parent volunteer” at my little sister’s former elementary school the day it happened. My grandfather sat on the porch with his bible saying something bad was going to happen. Something that would change the world forever. An hour later we hear about the first plane crash. Then the news of the next plane crash. Next was the Pentagon. By the time my mother and I run to the school because we knew concerned parents would pick up their children, early dismissal was announced. As we load children into cars and buses we heard the jets take off from Andrews AFB. We let my little sister’s friends stay over until their parents come home. It was scary but nothing as scary as the actual experience or first responders reactions and help. I will never forget that day and I will always remember its significance in our lifetime.

I’m still setting up the classroom, still getting back into the routine, still preparing for the school year... but it’s important to #selfcare #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #blackteacherloop #blackeducatorsrock #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
