I like smart, attractive, and confident things.
this is horrendous. horrendously awesome.
MY MAiN GOAL iS TO BLOW UP AND ACT LiKE i DON’T KNOW NOBODY
I’ve opened all my windows.
Somebody is grilling. I want it.
"I teach fourth grade in Harlem."
"What’s your greatest struggle as a teacher?"
"I worry a lot about the kids."
"Not all the kids. Just the ones that aren’t on the ‘college track.’ Many of them just don’t have a culture of expectation at home, and it’s hard work to lift yourself out of an underprivileged situation. I actually just finished going to a trombone recital for a former student of mine. I used to coach him in hockey on weekends. He’d practice with me from 4 AM to 6 AM. Then he’d go practice trombone from 8 to 10. He did all this just so he could get into a good high school. That’s what it takes, really. Hard to do without a culture of expectation."
s’how i feel about a lot of the circus kids. the only high expectations their parents have, is for them to be performers. maths and reading is tertiary.
