Oh, hey, Teach For Us…

How’s it going?  Long time no talk.  Saying I have been busy is an understatement, but you know that’s the case for all the teachers on here and so I must admit that I don’t have any legitimate excuse. In the weeks since I have posted, I have gone through professional development and been at…

After Institute

I’m sitting in Newark once again, an hour early for a brunch at what is touted to be an excellent Halal Soul Food place?  Looking forward to some real food.  I had a crazy and bizarre afternoon/night that (temporarily) wiped the memory of Institute from the surface of my brain, but it’s back.  I thought…

Oh hey, Friday of Institute Week 3

Oh hey, Teach For Us… Long time no see.  I’m not going to write about weeks 2, 3, and 4.  First thing I’m going to do is post a reflection I found on the computer from the first week of Institute.  This is dated as July 1, 2011: I am currently sitting in a session…

Well, it’s 6:30 on a Friday, and what else would I be doing but sitting in a Barnes and Noble and thinking about Teach For America? It has most assuredly been what I can only describe as a bizarre week.  While (after reading other blogs) I can say it was not the most negative 2011…

Welcome back to my wonderful world of procrastination!  I’ll be your host this evening. Actually, while I am procrastinating, I really also want to legitimately write down some of what I’m feeling so that I remember in the months and the years to come.  Which is not to say that you should get your hopes…

Placement, Induction … Life

So, all y’all have really clever post titles, blog titles, blurbs, basically (it seems) lives in general and I’m feeling a little less than capable compared to all of the brilliant folks here.  So thanks for making me feel inadequate, beautiful TFU bloggers I figured I would update TFA hopefuls out there (and my family–…

Pre-Interview Fair Jitters

Step One of coping: procrastination.  Enter Teach For Us. Well, I figured that I haven’t been exactly flooding the interwebs with my talking and information-sharing, so it was only fair that I updated y’all on the situation. (Not The Situation–I’m in Jersey but I’m not that Jersey). Starting backward, tomorrow is the first big interview…

Voluntary Segregation?

I don’t know if you have heard about this, but I was wondering what you all thought about it.  To summarize, there’s a school in Pennsylvania that for a short period of time each day, offers what it calls “mentoring” that is separated by race, gender, and language.  It’s being termed by some “voluntary segregation.”…

I decided to force myself to post here as a break from my thesis.  Right now, I have just woken up from a three hour nap that was the first time I slept in two days.  I have been horrifically sick, and so to take advantage of that I have only been eating these granola…

Why don’t people write &c. instead of etc. anymore?  People should write &c. instead of etc.  I’ll be on the vanguard of that trend for sure. Anyway, HI EVERYBODY! I’ve been itching to post about a few things but the perennial worry of posting too much, especially on a site people go to to check…
