"We need to change our PD model. Workshops are fun, but they don’t change teacher practice. Coaching and collaboration do. Let’s steal from the Japanese. Let’s give teachers time to collaborate with colleagues. Build this time into the school day, so it’s not at 4:00 when everybody is exhausted. Have teachers plan lessons together, then observe the lesson in action with real kids in a real classroom. Have them get back together and discuss how the lesson worked. It’s called lesson study. It makes everybody better."

Somebody posted these all around school, and now I know what it feels like to be proud of ones school.

"I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can’t do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can’t vomit from drinking at 26. I just can’t! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We’re obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It’s kind of sad actually because I don’t think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We’re so concerned about doing things “the right way” that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young."

On the subject of cat calling

When explaining how draining it is to walk in the city alone, I was told by my boyfriend’s friend to “just wear pants” 😶

"As humans, we waste the shit out of our words. It’s sad. We use words like “awesome” and “wonderful” like they’re candy. It was awesome? Really? It inspired awe? It was wonderful? Are you serious? It was full of wonder? You use the word “amazing” to describe a goddamn sandwich at Wendy’s. What’s going to happen on your wedding day, or when your first child is born? How will you describe it? You already wasted “amazing” on a fucking sandwich."
