people get really caught up in the aesthetics of a relationship

desiring what people have from the outside looking in

rather than really understanding the kind of depth necessary to have real, lasting love

In honor of Black History Month, here’s Part 1 of a list of 20 books that every young Black child should own/read. I feel this list is important because Black children need to see themselves in the books they read. Feel free to add to the list!

Note: Here’s the Whole List Here

OMG!! MY PARENTS HAD A LIBRARY FILLED WITH THESE BOOKS! I feel so privileged/honored that I grew up reading almost every picture book on here. My Gods, so many memories come flooding back. The Stories Julian tells is particularly good!! It made me want lemon pudding foreverrrrrr. 

never read corduroy; im just judging by the other book covers. why is it on here? real question 

I remember most of these! Ah Reading Rainbow, good times. 

For whoever asked about Corduroy: Corduroy is a teddy bear from a department store who wants to be united with a child that loves him, but cannot because he thinks he’s imperfect (missing a button I think?). In the story, the child that notices and loves him is a young, black girl shopping with her mom. It’s a really sweet story!

A Teaching Philosophy I’m Not Ashamed Of

I’ve always dreaded being asked for my “teaching philosophy.”

10PM

Anonymous said: Would you discourage a current junior in high school from becoming a teacher? Or do you feel the benefits outweigh the negatives for a person who would like to teach?

thegrownuplife:

I would discourage everyone from becoming a teacher. 

NO WAIT!! Hear me out… this job is thankless. No, really. The money is obviously not there, and I’m not even talking about lavish trips or even a trip down to the movie theater, I mean you will literally be living from paycheck to paycheck, if that. The educational system itself is ruthless and at this point probably even more savage than politics. The one thing that makes it all worthwhile is seeing your students succeed… but that won’t happen every day, every week, or every month. If they do though…. it’ll probably be years down the road and you may or may not know about it. Are there beautiful moments in the classroom? Absolutely. Do I enjoy teaching? Yes. Would I break my back for my students? I do. Every day. Even when they cuss me out, when they talk over me, when they sleep through class, when they just… won’t. But I would NEVER, EVER, EVER encourage anyone to be a teacher. 

Because the kind of person that has the strength, conviction, ambition, intellect, and passion needed to be a teacher…a great teacher… CANNOT be the kind of person that needs encouragement to do the job. It needs to be the kind of person that is ridiculously INSANE and maniacally ANGERED about the current state of our youth that they will do whatever is necessary to change their life…. despite people telling them to NEVER, EVER, EVER be a  teacher.
