quote 1. Read everyday. Consistency, Consistency, Consistency, Consistency.
2. Take notes on what you read. You can get a little notebook and write down the most important quotes, that way you always remember it. Our short term memory is not very good with holding information if we only read it once.
3. Read about everything. Broaden your mind. Science, math, history, english literature, languages etc. ex-Don’t just stick to reading about romance novels or YA. Read about healthcare, companies, computers, philosophers. (The library has everything, go use it!)
4. Write. Get a notebook and write about what you have learned, how you feel about it, what you think about it, what you like and don’t like about it etc.
5. Just don’t give a fuck about people’s opinions. They don’t matter. In school we try so hard to impress people who don’t even care about us, its stupid to worry about them.
6. Be alone. Being alone doesn’t mean you are going to be lonely. You have your books, and your videos, and music and coffee, and knowledge. Books are the most constant of friends.

EDD: What is your absolute favorite unit/lesson to teach? Like, get-so-excited-can’t-wait-for-students-to-roll-in-to-teach-it fave? Also, do you have a least favorite unit or lesson? Like can’t stand it but standards, standardized tests, important info to know, etc.?

writteninthekitchensink:

Last year, I was really looking forward to To Kill a Mockingbird with my 8th graders, but that felt like a very, very, very long unit. I also did it in late November-December- early January, which may have been part of the issue. I’m dreading it a bit this year as a result. 

However, I enjoyed my unit on The Omnivore’s Dilemma a lot more than I thought I would. I love the book, but I wasn’t sure how it would translate for the kids. They LOVED it, so I’m looking forward to doing it again.

As y’all know, I do not try with outfits, but I like nice makeup and hair. My go to products are Philosophy Hope in a Jar moisturizer and Neutrogena makeup remover cloths.

Ecco Bella mascara! It’s paraben-free, which means it washes off pretty…

Face wash & chap stick.

I have allergies & chronic eczema.

It’s simple in my class room.
