I'm Clare. I'm lots of other things too.

I think I have said something preeeeetty darn close to this, but my weight limit is more like 40.

I’ma rant

Fuck the following things: 

  • The fact that one of my sweet students spent two months in jail at 16 for trying to cross the border.
  • The fact that he has a work visa, but that this does not allow him to go him to visit his parents or any of his 8 siblings because it doesn’t allow him to reenter the U.S.
  • The fact that he’s hoping for a green card, but that he’s not sure he’ll be able to get one. 

Immigration reform is on the forefront of my mind. I’m hoping it pans out well because I’m pretty over borders, imprisonment, and deportations. 

Some images are the epitome of everything I believe in this world. This is one of them.

“I was surprised when I got here because the girl love the girl and the boy love the boy and then the children don’t respect the old people and then they eat pizza and drink coffee.”

I’ve been dancing in class ever since I reached that super comfort zone with my 4th period. I like to keep it upper body/arm heavy so there’s no chance of it being inappropriate.

Today RULES

  • I took over 7th period today and they clapped for me after my lesson. I told them that my 4th never clapped for me after my first lesson with them (and that was probably rightly so because they were the first class I ever taught and 7th period benefits from me having three months of teaching under my belt and coming after I teach my 4th period the same lesson every day). 
  • The principal watched me teach on Friday. Today, the vice principal showed up while I was teaching 7th. She handed my CM a form that said “Nice job! Thank you” WhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaTTTTT?
  • A Spanish speaking student praised me for my Spanish today.
