Ghandi vs. Gandhi

So… I went to a district run pd for all secondary social studies teachers on Tuesday. I saw several teachers from another school proudly wearing shirts that bore their logo and a quote from “Ghandi” on the back.

Guys… it’s Gandhi, not Ghandi!

Gah, so embarrassing. Didn’t want to say something for fear of seeming like an ass. But really…

So this is it… back to school!

aredhat:

I think this is so great! Thank you teacher for leaving this in the book you gave me!

I’d like to know more about your child through your eyes. The more I know, the better I can tailor an educational and motivational program to fit his or her particular needs.

Please answer the following…

Was going to do something like this this year.

Guys, it’s the last day of summer vacation and babyjib gave me her horrendous head cold.

Sigh…

the satisfaction

One time in like 5th grade I had this teacher and she gave us all bottles of shit like this and told us to squeeze it all out and of course we were like fuck yeah and did it and then she said, “Now, try and shove it all back in the container.” Of course we all tried, and then stared at her confused as shit. When we all obviously gave up, she said, “In the moment, you were so consumed with what you were doing that you didn’t realize the mess you were making. Then, after it was so quickly and easily poured out, you realize it is impossible to put it all back in. Remember this for the rest of your lives when it comes to the words that come out of your mouth” and we were like 10 so we were like yeah ok whatever lady, but somehow to this day I think of it constantly. 

Doing this with my home room advisement class.

A Gentle Reminder that Teachers Have an Impact

Yesterday I was at the pharmacy waiting for a prescription. A few feet away a former student took a seat. It took us a few seconds to catch each other’s eye. When we did, she smiled and gave me a huge hug. We chatted about how she’s been the past couple of years (now a junior in college!), I showed her pics of babyjib, and talked about her future plans. Our five minute conversation ended with her telling me that she still thinks of my class often and shared with me how it helped her prepare for life beyond high school.

I was fortunate enough to run into this student and hear her kind words. Remember teachers, you make a difference! Hopefully we’ll all be lucky enough to be reminded of that often.

Jerry Seinfeld tries to teach history on Saturday Night Live.

This video doesn’t give students enough credit but I have no doubt that EVERY teacher can relate to this just a little ; )

Today is babyjib’s first day at daycare… I’m a mess!

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

Will reblog every time

Just looking at these makes me feel empowered. Thank you, Carol Rossetti.
