His teachers said, 'He's a boy, he'll pick it up soon.' Then, 'he's not trying hard enough, you're not reading at home with him enough.' He struggled through those early years with me throwing everything at him that I was taught at university... https://t.co/4U3pAWNUui

No matter what they are doing, their experiences in education are informing and enriching the work they currently do.

One thing I've loved about working with new teachers: I have had the opportunity to watch them grow and blossom whether they stay in the profession or not. An education journalist (just had an opinion article in the NYTimes!), a NTOTY finalist, an MSNBC reporter...

Trump’s entire education agenda for the next four years. 

I’m assuming Stephen Miller will be writing the textbooks for that second bullet? https://t.co/BB1ti1605M

I have an important question for the Twitter: does anyone else put salt and pepper on their toast? 🧂🧂🍞

It's New Job Eve: tomorrow I start writing middle school curriculum! While writing pre-k was fun, I'm excited for a new challenge. https://t.co/Qub01cOevC

The curriculum I worked on last year is now online! https://t.co/zMpph57qzP https://t.co/s4BYMenIox

Quoted @TheWeirdTeacher

What was your childhood obsession that you read everything about and knew everything about? Ancient Egypt, Greek Gods, dinosaurs, WW2? Mine was sharks. I read every book I could about sharks and Shark Week was the best week of TV ever.

I went through many phases. Countries of the world, Norse myths, famous women (Helen Keller and Nellie Bly being two favorites), the Wallace mine wars, space and space travel, daily life in X time period, Christmas... I was a child who easily became focused on interesting topics. https://t.co/6u2e1v4lGs

My friend Priscilla Thompson is a reporter at MSNBC and is looking at doing a series of teacher diaries on air this year (shes also a former teacher.) If you're interested, fill out this form: https://t.co/D7FpwOxt0x

Rest in power, Congressman Lewis. 

May we continue to strive toward your example.

This quote, spoken by John Lewis, became a North Star for me: "It is good, in itself, for everyone in our society to be lifted." I won't write an essay, trying to explain what this means to me. I simply ask you to consider how you work to lift everyone in our society.

Several years ago, I had the good fortune to attend a panel discussion on activism, moderated by Malcolm Gladwell, and including John Lewis and Gloria Steinem. I consider it a seminal moment in seminal moment in my development. I took furious notes of everything I could:

If early el is remote this fall, I feel like meeting intensively in small groups (4-6 kiddos) for 45 min-1.5 hours of instruction, daily, would be superior to trying to meet with a whole class for 5-6 hours.

This book! Wow. Love, love, love. Moreno-García has such an incredible imagination and way with description, as well as some of the baddest badass heroines around. https://t.co/DmkBhPSB6R

I’m just telling everyone... do you like Gothic novels? Read Mexican Gothic! https://t.co/0S9MNIwpQS

If you've ever sat in a college class praying you weren't called on because you don't have the assumed prior knowledge that others do, I'd wager that you understand why only expecting kids to read independent choice books is problematic.

@CoachDayejr @effortfuleduktr Semantics. You do teach content. You teach content through your lens and they interpret it through theirs. Relationships happen while questioning and dissecting content. Making the content work for them. Having them see themselves in the content. But content is what you do

@teachnlearnMB @EvidentlyR Finally I totally agree it is *not* easy to teach content well, because I have seen it taught badly and I have taught it badly, and it has meant some of my caring is not as effective because they are not getting one of the things they need from me.

Teaching the skill of BLENDING correctly is critical to the teaching of reading. C doesn't symbolize CUH and B doesn't symbolize BUH.

Eliminating that extra UH sound is really important. For how to do this, see Stages 1 and 2 in any of these FREE books. https://t.co/wynUhAFLfz
