Hi and happy Friday! I’m here with an English Nine Update: we’re doing The Odyssey (for my first time) and I’m SO excited. I made some guided reading notes for today where they were color-coding textual evidence for their answers. Pretty colors + deep analysis makes me a happy teacher. 😊

A LOT has been going on at school the last 2 weeks. 🙈 Stress, doubt + anxiety have been at an all time high for me. I know that reading things my students write sparks my passion for education again...so when God told me to ask my 9th graders about their biggest life lessons, I didn’t hesitate. 👏🏼 — Y’all. When I say I teach world changers, I’m not lying. 😭 When I say being a teacher is SO HARD I’m also not lying...but I took those life lessons + typed them up + made it a fixture on our classroom walls for the last leg of this “end of year race.” 👊🏼 — These are THEIR words. I didn’t change a thing. I have kids in foster care, kids with trauma history, kids with depression, kids who struggle with suicidal thoughts, kids who suffer abuse...the weight of their battles is REAL. But I know God is present in my room + even more known when words like “Love one another” mark my walls. 🖤 #teachersmatter

🐦💭6th grade health had a little "Twitterchat" in class this week. 🐦💭I posted about 8 tweets around the room students had to respond to in one sentence. (topic was drugs, alcohol, and tobacco) Then students got to choose an individual "tweet" and had to write a one paragraph response. This was a fun #formativeassessment that showed me what students know and that we still don't comprehend the principle of secondhand smoke 🙈🙈🙈 . . . . . . #iteachtoo #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #iteach6th #iteach7th #iteach8th #iteach9th #iteach10th #iteach11th #iteach12th #heckiteachitall #healthteacher #peteacher #ruralteacher #physed #physicaleducation #pe #health #twitter

#epicteacherfail I have to teach Romeo & Juliet when we get back from Spring Break next week. The last time I read it was when I was a freshman in high school (back in 1998). I have been reading through the No Fear version this week and lesson planning. I never realized how much of a sex comedy the play is. It turns out that my high school teachers glossed over the sexual innuendo translations in class. I am now trying to figure out how to teach certain scenes I my freshmen. 😂😂😂 #prayforme

PAPers finished Romeo and Juliet this week. They journaled, took notes, we had discussions, they wrote an essay, compared the Zeffirelli film to the Luhrmann film, and then we finished with a debate over which character is to blame for the lovers’ deaths. They planned, created teams, wrote down points, and then interacted with the person in the middle through a Google doc. (Not in the instructions but I loved the improvisation!) they only had a minute per round, so they had to be concise and use their argument skills! #iteach9th #nohandouts🚫

Hi y’all. I’m Ms. Yarochowicz. Or Ms. Yaro for short. Welcome to my classroom Instagram! I am studying to be a biology teacher at Kansas State University. I am currently a student teacher at Manhattan High in a biology classroom. I’m a little late with posting my student teaching journey so I’ll be catching up soon. This photo is from the undergraduate research fair- where I presented on teaching argumentation in the classroom! Stay tuned for updates on graduation and where i will begin my journey as a teacher ☺️ Welcome! #iteach9th #secondaryscience #biologyteacher

Two days in a row! Its been a great couple mornings. Today my principal pulled me aside to share a positive story that a student shared with him about how much I have helped them grow this year; in confidence and in math. I want to share, not to be boastful but encourage all teachers. Sometimes O N E student should be enough! The point is — you matter! . . Have a wonderful Wednesday! . . #dammansalgebraroom #iteach9th #teachersencourageteachers #teachersofinstagram #iteachtoo #happyteacher

Needing both informative text review + an introduction to Shakespeare = stations that cover the Bard’s vocabulary, insults, and comparison to contemporary rappers! • I’m really enjoying these so far. My kids are SUPER engaged. Would anyone be interested in be posting these?? Let me know! ⬇️↕️⬇️

My students are currently reviewing for their EOC tests. I know reviewing for state tests can be a drag, so I found several fun games to play, rather than making them take practice tests. I found this idea for free on #teacherspayteachers. My students seemed to love it! We will be playing this game + connect 4 (found on Pinterest) tomorrow. 🥳 If you’re interested in this game, search “free attack review game” on #tpt and it’s the second resource.

We can call this a lot of things: discipline, consistency, hard work, a faith boost. Or I could call it like it is - the result of being a part of a health + fitness TEAM. 👊🏼 __ YES I said team. I lead a team of clients + coaches to become their best selves. I truly believe it takes a TEAM of encouragement + tough love to have lasting changes that STICK. No quick fixes here.👋🏼 __ THAT is what this coaching team gave me. Yes, it pays my bills. Yes, it holds me accountable. Yes, it provides me with amazing opportunities. But most? It gave me my HEALTH + a tribe of women who will always be there for me!! 🙌🏼 __
If this sounds like something you are wanting, REACH OUT! Always accepting applications for new coaches…you know you wanna be BFF’s....🖤

Cheers to (finally) being on Spring Break! I enjoyed a relaxing facial this morning, courtesy of @skin.magician Self care is SO important. It’s so common to put ourselves last, especially in a profession where tiny humans always come first. Wishing everyone a beautiful day 💛

Pua’s excited for today’s winning tribes of Survivor EOC! . . . #testprepseason #grindtime #iteach9th #teachersofinstagram #teachingsecondary

Student: Hey Ms. M? Isn’t that a wine glass? My mom had some Me: I mean, there’s a smoothie in it sooo #guilty #teachersofthegram #iteachtoo #iteach9th #teacherlife #teacherweightloss #celiacdisease #dogmomaf #yogaeverydamnday #bodypositive #allbodieswelcome

Refresh. Reset. Recalibrate your mind and get back to work. 2 weeks off. I let every excuse get in my way, but now more! I am back! #fitgirl #fitfam #community #teamwork #teacher #iteach #iteach6th #iteach7th #iteach8th #iteach9th #fitteacher #juniorhighteacher #homeworkout #fitnesscoach #fitnessfashion

I stayed up past midnight last night getting a tattoo, but I also got my free birthday coffee from Starbucks, so I feel like today could be worse. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Also I am testing out some new informative Shakespeare stations later this week so stay tuned for those!

Steinbeck includes such great imagery in the first page of “Of Mice and Men,” that we were able to really visualize the setting and draw the scene!

Editing this week with my 9s. I told them I cannot be their editor. Today we’re working on how they can begin sentences differently. I tell them, “it’s about variety!” #iteach9th #editing #iteachwriting #iteachmiddleschool #iteachela #iteachelamiddleschool

Hiking this mountain was NO JOKE. Lemme tell you. It was icy, muddy, slippery, the elevation made it feel like I was *actually* suffocating, the rocks were wobbly...I told my friends at one point that I didn’t think I would make it to the top. 👀 — I think life is a lot like this. We have all these insane mountains in our lives (stressful jobs, challenging relationships, feeling lost in our faith, trying to reach health goals, etc.) We see all these insane obstacles + let fear / insecurities / self-doubt get it in the way of reaching the top. 🙈 We talk ourselves out of being a better version of ourselves because it seems like too much work. — My encouragement to you as you go into this new week: take courage + hike that scary mountain. I don’t know what your mountain is. I know I have several right now. BUT. You are called to be strong + courageous...don’t let fear get in your way. 👋🏽

Happy Weekend Friends☕️ I decided to do nothing related to school this weekend and it’s been THE BEST. I was reading the other day that rest and play can promote creativity and wellness and I need a little bit more of both of those in my life✨ 💛I love that I’m able to stop and rest and realize when I need that 💛I love that I’m good at taking care of others 💛I love that I’m a terrible dancer but do it anyways because it encourages other terrible dancers to be themselves too💃🏻 What do you love about yourself? @teachlikeagirl • • • • • #teachlikeaboss #teachersofinstagram #teachersofthegram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo #igteachers #teachersofig #teacher #teachertribe #iteach9th

Time to pick summer reading options for my kiddos! Trying out a couple of new ones for the list. Any suggestions? #iteach9th #iteach10th

It’s going to be gorgeous and 77 degrees here today - Go outside, wander where there’s no WiFi, breathe deeply and make it a great day! I’ll be celebrating #40weekspregnant with my boys, still patiently awaiting the arrival of baby girl! 🌷☀️ . . 📸: @amytangerine • • #teachersofig #teachergram #teachersofinstagram #teachershare #teachersfollowteachers #iteach #iteachhistory #historyteacher #iteach9th #meettheteacher #sped #teacherlife🍎 #teachersoftpt #iteachtoo #instagoodteachers #iteachhighschool #teacherstuff #edchat #weekendvibes #socialstudiesteacher #worldhistoryteacher #saturdayvibes #teacherfollowteachers #mentalhealthawareness #wellness #mindfulness

Student led pH demo activity. In years past I did this as an individual lab but tried something new last minute. The students enjoyed being the teachers and having their demo projected on the board for the class to see. The audience members also enjoyed arguing over which color the indicators were 😂 #iteachscience #phlab #iteach9th #iteachtoo

I am here for YOU ✌🏽Like literally. Here for YOU. Always. I’ve had a crazy week. But here’s what I need to share with y’all on this Friday... — I am here for the girl who desperately needs a SOLUTION. A solution to lacking time management + routines... to making better habits... to knowing Jesus more... to finding JOY in education... to losing weight/gaining muscle... to finding a positive community of women... to learning how to eat healthier + consume less Cheez-Its... to financial FREEDOM + not letting money rule your life.... Girl, WE CAN DO THIS! — What do YOU need a solution for right now?! How can I serve you?! How do YOU want your life to change?! 👇🏽👇🏽

It’s Friday!!!!... but I also have a million things to grade over the weekend. 😅

Take me back to spring break when I ate brunch every single day, drank mimosas and DID NOT WRITE ANY 9TH GRADE REFERRALS ✌🏼🙈 #happyfriday

These...these handouts are life....😎 . .The blue I made and it appears in many of my products. The pink I typed up years ago but have never been able to find the artist for permission to sell if it includes that cute, perfect pic, so it gets to demo and students get a clean version. The yellow I found online and it was just the most perfect, most useful version I've ever found and so have used it for years. . . . . . . . .#teachersofinstagram #2ndaryela #teachersfollowteachers #iteach8th #teachersofig #iteach9th #iteach10th #iteachms #iteachhs #iteach7th #iteach11th #iteachms #iteachhs #middleschoolela #iteachmiddleschool #teacher #iteachtoo #iteachninth #iteachhighschool  #ela #secondaryela #iteachtenth #englishteacher #highschoolenglish #hs #englishteachers

Baby Sophomore Bootcamp Lesson 1: Email Etiquette. From now until the end of the year, I give my freshmen a “life skill” lesson once a week 🎉 We start with email etiquette. Their homework is to send me a professional email! 💻 What sorts of lessons would you suggest for freshmen?

Love @kasey_kiehl sentence stalking resource. I book talk the book, we discuss sentence, answer questions, and imitate the sentence. #iteach9th #mentortext #tptstore #tpt #mentorsentences #iteachwriting #iteachreading #iteachmiddleschool

As the year winds down, warm weather approaches, and as spring break nears (or passes!) it can be challenging to keep it together. Remember your ⭐️WHY⭐️ and continue nourishing those relationships with our number one customers - the kids! Take care of yourself and focus on recharging when you can in a way that works for you 🌸💜 • • #historyteacher #specialeducation #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #teachersfollowteachers #iteachhistory #sped #teacherlife🍎 #historyteacher #teachersoftpt #classroomdecor #iteachtoo #teachersofig #teachergram #instagoodteachers #iteachhighschool #teacherstuff #edchat #teachertribe #happyclassrooms #iteachhistory #iteach9th #specialeducation #sped #spedteacher #specialeducationteacher #historyisfun #teachersoftpt #tpt #tptteachers #iteachtoo #teacherfollowloop #mentalhealthawareness #wellness

Happy World Of Seuss Wednesday! Our musical this year is “Seussical” and it was so convenient this week to have a Seuss spirit day. Our shirts got here just in time for this PR day, and we were so excited! • • • Our show opens April 25th—after a week of spring break! I decided the Lorax really spoke to my soul because I like to speak for the trees (and the planet)! Plus, I’m down for any excuse to wear a tutu. #iteach9th #iteachninth #iteachtheatre #iteachdrama #iteachenglish #iteachela #theatredirector #highschoolmusicals #virginiateacher

Today my kiddos completed their Romeo and Juliet Escape Room test! Shout out to @nouvelle_ela for the awesome resource! My students had a blast showing what they know about R&J #iteach9th #englishteacher #romeoandjuliet #teacherspayteachers

who knew math could be this fun😉??? we were able to derive Euler’s formula by creating 3D shapes with marshmallows and toothpicks! #highestengagement #motivatedkiddos . . . . . . #math #mathproblems #iteachmath #mathteachertribe #iteach9th #algebra #math #methuenhigh #highschool #geometry #iteachalgebra #iteachgeometry #teacher #studentwork #motivation

Testing season, where my coffee order always includes whipped cream and an extra shot. 🤤 One month until our state reading test— time to remediate and teach Macbeth all at the same time 🙃🙃🙃

It’s community service time! Every year my PAP students choose a cause to take a stand for (connected to our Night unit at the beginning of the year). They advertise for their cause, write about it, and then take an action step. This group chose to take a stand against animal abuse/neglect and raised $342 to buy pet supplies for a local animal rescue and donation center. They managed the money, calculated their totals as we shopped, and checked out on their own. #iteach9th

Romeo and Juliet! Every year I have the kids write a more modern version of Act III, scene i and then they act it out for their class. I use our 1.5 hr days and give them about 45min total. #iteach9th

Events of the Cold War Project....Brrr!!! 🥶 It’s getting “cold” in here as Ambassadors study the key events, key leaders and countries involved in the Cold War that are STILL shaping our lives to this day. 🥶 ❤️ 🖤 ❤️ 🖤 ❤️ 🖤 #coldwarhistory #coldwar #historyteacher #historystudents #studentchoice #worldhistory #ambassadors #worldhistoryteacher #studentchoice #vietnamprotestmusic #johnlennon #marvingaye ##buffalospring #bobdylan #edwinstarr #blackteachers #freshmanacademyrocks #wearehcs #crabberpride🦀 @studentsofhistory #iteach9th

Hi! I'm thinking it's been a LONG time since I've shared a little about myself here. So here it goes. Ten things you may not know about me: 1. I'm the middle of five kids, but I only grew up living with one sister and one brother. The others grew up with their moms (we have the same dad). 2. I've been married 8 years to my college sweetheart. We met the first day of school. 3. I went to Cal State Sacramento for my BA, teaching credential, and MA. 4. I have an MA in Language and Literacy. The focus is on first and second language acquisition. 5. I am also a specialist in Reading and Language Arts. It's a specialized credential in California. 6. It's a rare credential to have at the secondary level. 7. I LOVE teaching reading intervention at the secondary level. 8. I have two adorable children with my dreamy husband. 😍 9. I've been reading the same book for two years, and I'm only halfway through it. 🤦‍♀️ (book 6 of the Outlander series). 10. Teaching writing is my favorite thing to do, though I find it as the MOST challenging skill to teach as well. There you have it! Some kind of boring, but maybe interesting facts about me as a teacher. Introduce yourself! I'd love to get to know you more. #teacher #teacherlife #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #english #englishteachers #igteacher #teacherig #teachergram #teachertribe #teachers #teacherfriends #iteachtoo #iteach9th #iteachhigh-school

Key to my classroom? BUBBLES. Yup. Bubbles. Whenever my kids are moody, grunty, angsty, over serious teenagers- I whip out a thing of bubbles and every single one of them LOSES THEIR MINDS. Kids are kids. Even in their grumpiest. #teachershare #iteach9th #iteachtoo #teacherstyle #teachersofthegram #bodypositive #weightlossjourney #debtfreejourney #sidehustle #teachersidehustle

Time for group roles! I love literary analysis. During bellringer time, we take the opportunity to identify the real careers, their salaries, and what personal traits would be strengths in that role. After that, we read the text aloud and then the groups take charge to analyze each area of the text according to their role. This leads to jigsaw and gallery walks. So awesome! There are usually great results and a lot of growth. . .link in bio . . . . .#teachersofinstagram #teacherspayteachers #tpt #2ndaryela #teachersfollowteachers #iteach8th #teachersofig #iteach9th #iteach10th #iteachms #iteachhs #iteach7th #iteach11th #iteachms #iteachhs #middleschoolela #iteachmiddleschool #teacher #iteachtoo #iteachninth #iteachhighschool  #ela #secondaryela #iteachtenth #englishteacher #highschoolenglish #hs #englishteachers

F L A N N E L • F R I D A Y We made it, friends!! Who else is sooo ready for the weekend?! I’m excited to read for fun, spend time with Mom (YAY! She’s in town!), and have lots of laughs with friends. Don’t forget to do something for yourself (i.e. something unrelated to school) this weekend!! 💛
