I plan to go PCC soon. I mean, I’m going there on Thursday to talk with someone about everything I need to get done. I’m not even asking anyone for help and I intend on doing everything alone. I can never count on anyone else anymore.

You can count on me! But I love that you are doing this your way. I can’t wait to hear what you learn. What time? Want to meet after?

I keep trying to like peanut butter, and it’s just not happening. I try and I try and try. Sigh.

I just feel like everything in my life would be easier if I could just. Like. Peanut butter.
Seriously.

This is tough. In this picture I am wearing a lot of cover up on the left side (it was taken with front camera) of my face. Why? I am covering up a mole/birth mark that I was born with. I have became so used to it and at times I forget it’s there, but I really just don’t want it anymore. It has helped shaped me into who I am, but I’ve out grown it. My mom loved it. She always referred to it as my “beauty mark” because not many others had one like it, especially on their cheek. She would say I was beautiful with or without it.

Um, I get this.

Scheduling an appointment on pay day. Going from there. I don’t know if I’ll do it, but it would be good to just go and find out info that I’ve been wanting to know.

Such a big, crazy step.

Let’s talk about this. I truly get the identity bit. My scar—my birthmark—is such a part of who I am, but if I could…? I don’t know…

Oh, and the folks who say, “I don’t even see it!” It’s not about them! It’s about what you see and how you feel…oh, I get this.

Why I Now Friend My Students on Social Media

Why I Now Friend My Students on Social Media

Being unpopular and saying things people don’t want to hear isn’t fun. Neither is admitting you’re wrong. Perhaps that is why this 5 minute speech I felt compelled to give was so hard for me.

I’m convinced that we’ve isolated…

Oh hells no. Too much liability. I know a teacher who mentioned a FORMER (over 18) student on Facebook. TSPC took issue, although the student and student’s family did not. Seriously: they revoked his license. He challenged it and is teaching now, but still…

My Facebook account is sort of…not even me. It’s a public persona that I heavily edit because I teach in a small district with some people who will get all weird and judgey if I have two glasses of wine and post something late on a school night or if I go out on a Friday and mention whiskey. This is true, and sad, but still true.

That said, this polite, heavily edited version of me is “friends” with a few former students. Ones I’ve come to know over the years. But not just the student, but their family too. Ones who have helped me move, invited me to family parties or birthday celebrations, or have watched my dog when I go on trips—ones who, over the course of years,
have become friends. These things happen occasionally.

But mostly, no. My life, and my school life, we are different.

I’m happy my friends like me for who I am, but I don’t need Facebook or work and students to get all up in my business.
