Got to read @barackobama speech today in class with my students. It was so inspirational, it gave us all chills. This is from a 2009 speech - I was still a high school junior at that time, and to be reading this as a teacher with my own students now, and talking to them about the importance of the next four years in high school was cray. Sometimes I feel like a broken recording. Saying the same thing over and over - “education is power. You have to take this year seriously. Your freshmen year is so important” ❗️ Some get it, and others just need a speech everyday. But I’ll give them that speech as many times as they need it. I love them, I care, and my words, wisdom, and knowledge is what I can pass down to them. It’s what I will leave them with. #lovemystudents #teacherwisdom #educationspeech #iteach9th

I was really inspired to have my students answer a survey from @buildingbooklove . I asked my students about reading, quizlet, their favorite story, and I am letting them decide their novel study. So far, my students are interested in Lord of the Flies. Last year, my hands were tied behind my back and I was told that they had to read it instead of Romeo and Juliet. I might give it a second chance since 47% are interested in it. #secondaryela #iteach9th #englishteacher

@theyorkschool participating in our first Hackergal Hackathon - a movement to close the gender gap in STEM. #becausewecan #hackergal2018 #yorklearns @thehackergals

Started the unit on poetry with my homeroom students - and I’m fully in the zone. Poetry is definitely my happy place. It’s what originally brought me to my love for literature. Every time we read a poem, or a line from a poet I make this weird noise like “oooooff” or “uunnnfff” ... or maybe not like that... but I start vocalizing my feelings through abstract sounds when I really like a poem 😅. My kids didn’t get it, but I promised them, that at the end of the unit, they will be making their own sounds when they read a really deep poem. #itspoetryseason #iteach9th #deadpoetssociety

We SKETCH NOTE after every Act in Romeo and Juliet in their “play folders”. Yep. Some things are just better done old school!! I love doing this to quickly recap previous day’s lesson and keep this running summary as the play progresses. Don’t zoom in too far on some of my pics — they might haunt you!! 🤣🤣🤣. How else do you like to summarize with kids? . . . . #romeoandjuliet #iteachshakespeare #sketchnotes #doodlenotes #readingstrategies #elateacher #iteachhighschool #iteach9th #shakespeare #nctegram #englishteacherhack #teachersfollowteachers

The Hate U Give update! • We’ve been spending a lot of time working on argumentative writing, but we’ve managed to squeeze in some awesome novels discussion. This was a silent discussion. Each row of desks (I know, but my kids can’t handle groups) was a group. They all had a question for three minutes, wrote their answers in different colors, and then passed it to their partners. Afterwards, they grouped up and talked it all out— it was a great way to get conversation started (but also spend a lot of quality class time pretty quiet). • My favorite discussion I overheard was a girl explaining how calling Starr’s family “ghetto” was wrong and why— so proud of how maturely my freshmen are taking this book so far! • #thug activity of the week coming up on Thursday— stay tuned!

Day 8 + 9: I Can’t Teach Without and Favorite Quote (a little behind, but that’s how I am as a human🤷‍♀️) . Coffee is my blood type ☕️ I went without it my entire first trimester, and I was an actual grinch. Ask the students. And my husband. . This quote has been my laptop background since college. Especially at the age my students are, they tend to see insignificant things (breakups, fights with friends, forgetting to complete an assignment) as life-altering. I try to remind them, and myself, that things will always get better, and life does go on. . . #decemberteacherphotochallenge #mondaymotivation #iteach #englishteacher #teaching #teacherphotochallenge #lessonplans #teacherssupportteachers #iteachenglish #iteach8th #iteach9th #iteachhighschool #teachergram #teachersfollowteachers #teacherlife #teachermotivation #teachersrock #teacherssupportteachers

I can never find the right words when tragedy strikes. Broken hearts are everywhere. Be someone who builds others up. Be someone who genuinely wants to know how someone is doing. Be a light for people who need it. And if you need a light, reach for your people. You are loved. You are cared for. Keep going. ❤️ . . . . #teachersfollowteachers #iteach9th #thirdyearteacher #3rdyearteacher #teachersofinstagram #highschoolteacher #teachertribe #teacherstyle #iteachela #elateacher #iteachhighschool #teacher #teacherlife #teachergram #teacher #teachers #highschoolela #highschoolenglish #literature #classroomdecor #classroommanagement #classroomorganization #classroom

Having the kids set reading schedules has helped them read more books than my previous students and gives me an easy way to keep track of the books they read throughout the year during #independentreading ! This is a template I recreated from Berit Gordon’s in #nomorefakereading . Students just put the bookmark in the “Turn In Bin” when they have finished that selection. If they abandon a book, that’s fine, too. I have them write why they are abandoning on the back of the bookmark and turn it in! How do you get your students to set a reading schedule? How do you keep track of the number of books they read? 📚 Interested in using this template? Good news! You can download it by clicking the link in my profile! 📚#teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig #iteachenglish #iteachhighschoolenglish #iteachreading #iteach9th #iteachela #secondaryela #2ndaryela #njteacher #njteachertribe #njteachers #nctevillage #weareteachers #180days #pennykittle #kellygallagher #readersworkshop #teacherswhoread #teacherreader #bookstagram

When students misread project instructions and bring in these cute lil guys, they instantly become class “pets” 😂🤷🏻‍♀️

I’m so impressed by the ideas my students have come up with in creating this project!!

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”— MLK. • I LOVE “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” and I love teaching it. So of course, I had to be extra and where my King shirt. • Seeing kids truly engaged with this text makes my heart happy, and makes Friday so much easier. I hope everyone had a great end of the week— we’re almost there!! ☃️☃️☃️

It is Project Presentation Day!!!! So excited about how these Odyssey Theme Parks turned out! 🔱

Day 6: My Classroom Library . My classroom library is run down and outdated (English teacher fail), BUT here are two of the newest books I’ll be adding when I’m done reading them! . The Tattooist of Auschwitz- a beautiful tale of survival, finding love in the darkest of places, and the benefit of being friendly to everyone. The Next Person You Meet in Heaven- the long awaited sequel of my FAVORITE novel ❤️ it makes me think that a well-lived life is worth dying for. . . #decemberteacherphotochallenge #teacherlife #bookaholic #bibliophile #teacherphotochallenge #teachersfollowteachers #teacherssupportteachers #iteachenglish #iteach8th #iteach9th #iteachhighschool #teachergram #teachersfollowteachers #teachermotivation #teachersrock

I’m still holding down Room 136. Promise I haven’t died, just fallen off the face of the earth. Year 3 updates: this is the hardest year of my personal life, but the best year of my teaching so far. I love my kids so much this year. And that’s good. The universe knew I needed that. My kids start with 15 minutes of SSR each class hour, and that has been SO TRANSFORMATIVE. I will never start class any other way from now on. I have the best teacher tribe ever. Their support has been huge for me this year. Oh, and I still think 9th grade is the most magical to teach. I adore those weird little baby chickens. I’ll try to stop by here more often with actual lessons we are doing.

My students are creating book trailers for their independent reading books using WeVideo. My district has a small team of “tech coaches” who come into classrooms to assist however they’re needed. One of our best ones conducted a mini-lesson to teach my kids how to use the program. I’m so excited to see the final results!

I just LOVE how this #romeoandjuliet #onepager turned out!!!! Instead of a traditional quiz, we went with a one pager for Act 2. I love using alternative forms of assessment — what’s your favorite?? . . . . . . . #teacherlife #assessment #iteachela #elateacher #iteachshakespeare #shakespeare #iteachfreshmen #iteach9th #projectbasedlearning #teachersofinstagram #instateacher #teachersfollowteachers #teacherspayteachers #teacherfeatureideas #ncte #iate #nctegram

I usually have pretty good Mondays but today was frustrating to say the least. I just really dislike when things don’t go as planned. This is something that I know I have to work on. As a teacher back up plans are a MUST, and from one minute to the next I might have to change it up. That’s why on my lesson plans I always put *Subject to change* ❗️my students were suppose to take their midterm assessment today, but that didn’t go as planned because of technological difficulties. I seriously miss the old school paper and pencil exams. Dealing with low WiFi connections, computers crashing, or other weird tech issues gets me aggravated. But ultimately I just have to FLOW LIKE WATER 🌊🌊🌊 & just keep swimming. . . . Do you prefer paper and pencil exams? Or testing on a computer ? #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #teachersofig #iteachtoo #iteach9th #flowlikewater #gowiththeflow #midtermexams

My students probably haven’t recognized this, but I’ve been panicking lately. I’ve been panicking because it’s December, and I haven’t made it through a class novel yet. This has never happened. We are usually starting our second core text as this point.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Today, #pennykittle reminded me that this is okay. #kellygallagher let me know I don’t need to be following the 4X4 model. I’ve made every Monday an independent reading day, and that takes “class” time away. But that doesn’t mean the work we aren’t doing isn’t important. All of the reading these students will be doing in college will be independent reading. They need to know how to read, comprehend, think about, and enjoy books on their own before they head to places of higher learning, should that be their goal.⁣⁣ —> Hello, culture shift 👋🏼 ⁣⁣ Allowing students time to love what they’re reading is still valuable class time spent. We will talk about the issues in some of those core novels in other ways if we don’t get through them all—articles, writing prompts, discussion, etc. it’s the ideas that matter, that will make the kids thinkers, after all. And this line certainly is a good retort for the naysayers!👋🏼 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig #teachersofinsta #instateacher #njteacher #njteachers #njteachertribe #iteachhighschool #iteachenglish #iteachela #iteachreading #readingteacher #secondaryela #2ndaryela #iteach9th #iteach11th #collegereading #nctevillage #weareteachers #180days #booklove #readicide #professionaldevelopment #teacherprofessionaldevelopment #teacherswhoread

Hello, friends! I have been inactive for a few months now. I have been out of the classroom soaking up every minute of maternity leave spent with my sweet baby boy. Tomorrow is my first day back in the classroom and I am excited to meet my students. I’m feeling those first day jitters at an awkward time of year but I’m ready to start building those relationships. Stay tuned for lessons, teacher hacks, and me occasionally dishing teacher-mom realness.

Day 2 Challenge: Sunday Lesson Planning 📚 Most organized teachers may get their plans done early on in the week, and while my intentions are always good, I often find myself planning for the week ahead on a Sunday afternoon. My lesson planning essentials are: ◾️Snacks galore (an apple is pictured but I have cheese balls off to the side ready to fill-in at a moment’s notice) ◾️Coffee that was poured upon waking up and then forgotten about until this afternoon ◾️Lesson plan template that could be reused annually, except I am one of those teachers who constantly changes how things are taught soooooo it must be redone (then I like to take about five minutes to reflect on why I am the way I am 🤷‍♀️) ◾️Answer keys so I know what they heck I am actually planning ◾️ Post-it notes with some ideas I hastily scribbled down last week that currently make no sense to me, so again, I am starting from scratch And there we have it! About 40 minutes later (with many interruptions throughout), I am (mostly) prepared for another week ahead 👏 #decemberteacherphotochallenge #sundayfunday #teacherphotochallenge #lessonplans #teacherssupportteachers #iteachenglish #iteach8th #iteach9th #iteachhighschool #teachergram #teachersfollowteachers #teacherlife #teachermotivation
