Thank you for this english teacher

It’s such a tragedy that you don’t really have the ability to understand why this stuff is cool and great until you are too old to be in school

As a fifth grade teacher, things like these are some of the funnest parts of my job.

SUPER late to the bandwagon but that’s how I roll.  If you are so inclined and want the ramblings of a teacher (or you know me) feel free to add me. 

God help us all.

To all men, I would say how mistaken they are when they think that they stop falling in love when they grow old, without knowing that they grow old when they stop falling in love.

I would give wings to children, but I would leave it to them to learn how to fly by themselves.

To old people I would say that death doesn’t arrive when they grow old, but with forgetfulness.

I have learned so much with you all, I have learned that everybody wants to live on top of the mountain, without knowing that true happiness is obtained in the journey taken & the form used to reach the top of the hill.”

Started reading “One Hundred Years of Solitude” and fell in love.

Of course, its easy when there’s a latino author writing in my favorite genre.

I saw this post with Pokemon phone wallpapers and got inspired to do my own!!! So I drew sfemonster's goomy, Newt, and my sylveon, Tendo because I am a huge nerd and I love our pokemon.

This is actual, legit, good life advice. If you are helping someone accomplish a task professionally and something goes wrong…spend an absolute minimum amount of time explaining what went wrong…spend much more time explaining how it is being fixed.

Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska Challenged

fishingboatproceeds:

Earlier today I received an email from a high school English teacher in Strasburg, Colorado who plans to teach an elective Young Adult literature course. A group of parents created a petition to “cleanse” the book list, claiming that the majority of the books on the curriculum, “are profane, pornographic, violent, criminal, crass, crude, vile, and will result in the irreparable erosion of my students’ moral character.”

Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska have been targeted in particular, and the press attended the most recent school board meeting. The motion has been tabled for the next meeting at 7:00 pm on April 9th at Strasburg High School: 56729 e. Colorado Ave, Strasburg, CO 80136.

Please join me in emailing letters of support of the teacher at Strasburg who has heroically stood by her curriculum and stood alone at School Board meetings defending the books. It’s important to keep your letter as civil as possible, even if this kind of thing turns you into a giant squid of anger.

Letters should be addressed "To the School Board" and emailed to StrasburgYALiteratureCourse@gmail.com. It would also be a great help to attend the next School Board meeting if you live in the area.

I am extremely grateful to those who have come out in support of my books on the various occasions they have been challenged, who understand that I am not out to corrupt teenagers, and who further understand the importance of reading books critically and thoughtfully as a whole, rather than focusing on individual scenes ripped from their context. Thanks for supporting my books, and thanks for being awesome.

Full proposed curriculum below the jump.

I’ve never read these books, but man censorship is soooo wrong guys.  Challenging books is the first step to it.

As an educator, I can’t even imagine what this teacher is going through, it’s already bad enough that we have our hands tied by legislation, curriculum expectations and economic necessity, but to now be nitpicked by a schoolboard?  Why must we make educating students any more difficult than it already is?  It’s hard enough finding something that our students will be passionate about as it is.
