So Many Colours
Some teachers still have trouble showing any sort of vulnerability of fallibility. These teachers will expend immense amounts of energy hiding the fact they’re frustrated at something, that they’re upset or perhaps even angry. Why? Other teachers get tied into logical knots to avoid admitting “I have no idea what the answer to your question is.” But teachers who genuinely connect with students are the ones who aren’t afraid to show emotions in class, who can admit that they aren’t in fact the repository of all knowledge. Of course nobody want to be a wallowing, blubbering mess in class, but what better way to teach empathy than to give the students someone to empathize with when we’re having a bad day? What better way to foster collaboration and to teach that it’s okay not to know something than to say “I don’t know, let’s find that out!”?

Tatiana tears up as a fan thanks Tatiana and the show for giving her the courage to come out and for writing Cosima as a character who is more than her sexuality. (x)

Really struggling. On so many levels. I just want to run.

Between my child not sleeping, being defiant and super cranky and things with R… I’m completely deflated.

Hang in there.

"If a child isn’t proficient in reading by 3rd grade, their HS dropout rate is 4x higher. So I’m trying to develop a system to help blind children develop literacy as soon as possible. If you think about it, books for young children are picture-driven, with very few words per page. So it’s tough for blind kids to really participate. So we recommend pre-reading activities to build the scene before the story begins. If you’re reading Goldilocks for example, take the child to the kitchen first, allow them to feel where the scene is going to be set. If the story is about a lamb, get a fluffy towel, so they can feel what a lamb looks like. It’s all about making the reading process as experiential as possible, so blind children can place themselves in the story without the aid of pictures."

I always end up feeling physically gross during these extended hotel conference stays. I have 10 days of it ahead of me (I’m on the train now). Hotel meals, convenience snacks, omnipresent free coffee, dinners out, very little natural light/fresh air, no “me” decompression time, and, during KSTF,…

Good strategies, I am at a 5 day conference at a hotel and office.

"The effect is intoxicating, as Maslany doesn’t just give the audience a subtly different “Sarah” seen through a fragmented prism, but seven individual characters, a masterful accomplishment. Each of the clones behaves in her own unique way, each with her own distinctive body language, timbre, and sensibilities. Sarah’s bruised toughness is quite different to Alison Hendrix’s uptight soccer mom fragility, just as the hipster sensuality of Cosima Niehaus’ evolutionary developmental biologist is worlds apart from copper Beth’s no-nonsense brusqueness or Helena’s sociopathic intensity." - The Daily Beast

This is a Truth about this actress and is exactly the reason why she is so riveting to watch.

I love this show.

We’ve been binge-watching this over the last 2 days.

As a teacher, I find myself all too often confronted with an audience eager for “teacher stories.” They crave the anecdotes about working in an urban school. Stories with the power to terrify, entertain, and assert their life choices (“I’m soo glad I didn’t become a teacher” often crossing their…
