JOIN: Celebrating the Women's March



Every Saturday, join me as I CELEBRATE This Week 
with Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build.


I won't be in Chicago marching with so many others in the Women's March today and it breaks my heart. 

But, in less than two hours, I'll be at school with third through eighth graders. Today is the first day of our Saturday enrichment programs and I'm teaching three sessions: Telling Your Story as a Graphic Novel, Vocabulary Fiesta: An Introduction to Spanish, and Silly Videos. As a technology integration specialist, I get to work in schools with teachers and students but I don't have my own students any more. Teaching these three mini-courses is super exciting because I get to teach again. 

So even though I won't be with friends downtown, I'm celebrating that I can still stand for the cause in teaching my classes. 

I'm a working mom. 
My kids know I'm teaching these Saturday classes.
One of my sons is in my classes and will see my excitement and enthusiasm. 
He'll see me alive and passionate.
They'll both see the work I do today. 

The kids I teach today will experience and learn something new.

My courses will inspire 
creativity, 
critical thinking, 
collaboration, 
and communication.

Kids will be 
drawing and dancing and singing
laughing and having fun as we learn. 

But more than anything, I hope they'll be engaged learners. 
Kids are our future.

I won't be at the Women's March.
But I will be making an impact in another way. 

Thank you to everyone who is marching, in Chicago or anywhere else. 
I wish I could be there but even though I'm not, I'm with you.

  4. YES. I was talking about this with some librarian colleagues last night, and talking about how educators are in such an incredible position to inspire a desire for equality, deep wells of empathy, and a passion for social justice in young people, every single day. You have a powerful role to play, and you're making a difference!

    1. I've thought about that a lot too...how lucky I am to work in education. I feel like it all starts in schools. If we can give kids as much as we can and help them learn to be learners, we can make a difference.
