10 Steps for Avoiding Teacher Burnout

How is it October and I already need these articles? Sigh.

Fashionable Teacher: Black and Yellow Edition

I don’t normally participate in these things, but I did a silly thing today, so I thought I would share. Be gentle, please. :] My students get a kick out of the fact that I am a Steelers fan living in Philadelphia, but I may have outdone myself today…

I wish the light was better so you can actually see my leopard-print skirt, but that’s as good as it’s getting for now. Pretty sure the skirt and cardi are from Wal-Mart and I ordered the shirt online. I love bringing a little bit of home into my classroom. :]

Happy Fashionable Teacher Week! Can’t wait to see all of your posts. :]



It seems like no matter how hard I work, there is always a never-ending list of things that are not just good ideas to get done on the weekend, but necessary.

You can’t tell me teaching is not one of the hardest jobs in existence.

Gender is a hierarchy.  Gender is oppression. 

funny how dudes that don’t even question suffrage don’t realize they are recycling the same boring ass arguments as anti-suffrage males from back in the day

"Nobody loves me. Guess I’ll be a suffragette" is just "Feminists are ugly" from a century ago

Can we talk about the badass suffragette hen at the bottom there?

"you’re gonna sit on those eggs and like it, you cock"

Almost a hundred years later and most men I know still see taking care of their kids by themselves as either “babysitting” or a burden.

Need to hang onto these for my “HERStory” unit. :]

NYC #education gathering!


I know we talked about doing this, but it’s coming up closer, so let’s make it happen!

2 things:

How about brunch on Sunday, October 12th? Anyone have a suggestion of a place to meet?

Can I crash on someone’s couch/floor on Saturday night? I’d rather not spend unnecessary $ if I can avoid it. :)

Send me an email at itssnix [at] gmail [.] com if you are interested in either of these so we can make our plans privately and not so publicly. :)

I so wish I could make this! I’m going to be at a fall festival for the weekend with family. Reblogging for my east coast educhums. Go! Take pics! :]
