Sometimes I have no words. Such a great love. . . Thank you, @mrprimarycornerstone for riding the waves with me. Sometimes they’re rougher than we’d like, but if we sink, we sink together. I don’t wanna sink though 😂😘
Books make me HAPPY!!!!! . . This month I’m partnering up with @cardinalrulepress and @mariadismondybooks. They were very kind and sent me some books to add to my classroom library💕 . . Stay tuned. Maria will be taking over my Instagram this month and I will be on her podcast in August. . . #representationmatters #primarycornerstone #latinateacher #iteach1st #iteachtoo #firstyearteacher #firstgradeteacher #iteachfirst #classroomorganization #classroomlibrary #diversebooks #diversereads
Me too, Claudia. Me too. . . I want to know more. I want to engage more. I want to be active.
Claudia is not in the Hollywood limelight. She is “boots on the ground!”. She gets the work done! #latinateacher #pclatinoinfluencers #primarycornerstone #representationmatters
Really. No time at all. . . However, please be bored lol. Find time to just be relaxed and enjoy some peace and quiet, but when it’s time to do the work, be about it ✊🏽
Oh but it’s so exotic 😒 . . I grew up hating my hair. It was too course and hard to manage. My mom would braid it everyday and I hated that too. Kids would make fun of me. . . Then I grew up. I changed. I learned to love my hair. . . It takes work to disrupt societal norms and skewed standards of beauty. Kamilah LOVES her hair! Yesterday she brushed it while DRY (such a no no), and it was a hot mess. She was proud of it though and well, we went to Target like that. She looked beautiful. . . She ran to one of her favorite sections of the store (books) and picked this book up. She asked me to read it to her. The best part? She saw herself reflected in it 💕 . . I wish I had had her mindset when I was her age, but it’s never too late. Loving and embracing it now 💁🏻♀️ . . #representationmatters #diversebooks #diversereads #latinateachersofinstagram #latinateacher #teachersonig #iteach1st #primaryteacher #teachermom #pocteachers
ARE YOU READY?! . . Ready for what? . . Ready for next year! . . Don’t throw tomatoes at me. Lol I know you just want to sip on some lemonade by the beach, but in all seriousness, did you pack things away nicely? . . I organized all my guided reading books by unit and placed them in a safe area. You know what? Future Kay is going to want to kiss present Kay. . . So while you’re probably desperate for summer and don’t want to organize, trust me. Future you will thank you 💕 . . #backtoschool #endofschoolyear #imateacher #firstyearteacher #primarycornerstone #teacherorganization #guidedreading #iteachphonics #iteachk #iteach1st #iteachprimary #iteachreading #iteachelementary #primaryteacher #teachersonig #teacherspayteachers
