[SWIPE⬅️] Yesterday, I went to a book signing of Jason Reynold’s new novel, “Look Both Ways.” @jasonreynolds83 ✨As a fan of Jason Reynolds, I went in... fully expecting to get a book signed and maybe a quick pic to share with my “teacher IG” fam (Y’all know we love us some Jason Reynolds🥰). An hour later, I left Barnes and Noble feeling as if I had just witnessed an intimate conversation between one of the most prolific minds...a genius of his craft, and Levar Burton, a living legend. Such poise, such grace, wisdom, integrity, purpose and unbridled passion and love for our children, culture, literature and the community as a whole. EVERY topic discussed by Mr. Reynolds resonated through me, and spoke to my passion and purpose. In the words of @levar.burton , we should always “protect the asset.” ✨ Jason Reynolds is definitely an asset that should be revered, protected, elevated and celebrated.💛 #jasonreynolds #representationmatters #decolonizeyourcurriculum #youcantbewhatyoucantsee #realrolemodels #yalit #bibliophile #lookbothwaysbook #iteach #fangirlmoment #iteachmiddleschool #englishteacher #blackeducators #socialjusticeeducation #californiateachertribe #teachersofig #teachersofthegram #teachersofinstagram #igteacher #teacherlife

Do you all know my friend Fletcher, over at @_thirdgradeswag? He is so much fun and his love for teaching is infectious. SOMEDAY he needs to come out here to sunny California because he lives covered in snow for the greater part of the year. Also, I’m completely unsure what he was snacking on in that last photo so Fletcher, when you come out to visit, bring some for me. 😉

Do yourself a favor: Google the name “Bartolome de los Casas...” . . . Do just a little bit of research and you’ll find that #col#columbusday is a flat out embarrassment. Since 1934, this country’s Congress has requested the President of the United States proclaim the second Monday of October of each year as “Columbus Day.” #indigenouspeoplesday #nativeamericans #firstpeoples #americanindians #christophercolumbus #columbusday #usa #holiday #teachersofig #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo #iteachthird #iteach345 #history #worldhistory #apush #socialstudies
