Inspiration for the weekend.

passionateWell it's hard to believe, but another school year is starting! I've been doing a lot of reading of education and teaching articles, while also trying to maintain a sense of peace (aka find ways to stop freaking out about the beginning of the school year). I want to carry over some of that summer calm into my classroom this year. So here are some links on how to maintain a healthy life, while still keeping your passion for teaching high. For maintaining the calm:

How to live to 100: drink wine and walk.

Walking toward peace.

For staying healthy:

Summer eats: zucchini eggplant tomato gratin / tomato stack salad with corn & avocado / berry goat cheese & almond salad

Good morning yoga sequence.

For keeping the passion for teaching:

Teach about Mike Brown. But don't stop there.

An awesome Pinterest board full of social justice teaching ideas.

My new favorite blog: NPR Ed.

A print I want for my classroom: "I will let them be little, fill their hearts with laughter, let them grow wings."
