Said, "You're a wolf, boy, get out of this town."

Seattle joins a growing number of cities officially recognizing Native American history

Columbus Day will now be known as Indigenous Peoples’ Day in Seattle.

The Seattle City Council on Monday unanimously approved the re-designation, which acknowledges that Native Americans were living in North America well before Christopher Columbus “discovered America” in the 15th century, Reuters reports.

The change, which will go into effect before the Oct. 13 holiday this year, marks the second major city in the U.S. to officially re-designate the day, after Minneapolis’ vote in April. (Though the city of Berkeley, Calif., ceased observation of Columbus Day in 1992.)

The change faced some opposition from some members of Seattle’s Italian-American community, who view the day as a celebration of their cultural heritage (Columbus hailed from Genoa, Italy).

The Seattle School Board voted last week to observe Indigenous Peoples’ Day and Columbus Day on the same day in public schools.

"oh my god, you’re seriously going to pay college kids $15 an hour to flip burgers? get a real job!"


a real job? you mean, like, an internship at the white house?


okay, well what about the national democratic party?


what about interning at the united nations?


wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not

9/29 and 9/30 - 23 and 24 Down, 156 To Go

Monday’s highlight of the day came in the middle of making oobleck. Students were discussing whether the substance was a solid or a liquid, when one cried out, “It’s a sliquid!” Sometimes I am too easily amused.

Today’s highlight happened when one of last year’s students texted me:


G: I don’t understand how.

Me: Nerd.

Me: I’m proud of you, but not at all surprised. You’re intelligent and you work hard. What did you expect? lol

G: says the science teacher lol, but thank you! but I don’t think I could have done it if I didn’t have you as my science teacher last year. The stuff I’m learning relates to what we learned last year and the only reason I passed science was because you’re such a good teacher :’)

Me: Well shucks.

9/26 - 22 Down, 158 To Go

Yesterday, we started a new unit on Matter. After a demonstration and some notes, students did an activity in which they sorted about fifty cards labeled as “moonlight,” “car exhaust,” etc. into “matter” or “non-matter.”

In the middle of doing the activity with my most quiet class, one of my students exclaimed, “This is so much fun!” and several other students cried out in agreement.

That was new… and pretty awesome…

9/25: 19, 20, 21 Down, 159 To Go

Going to start including dates on these so I can better keep track of daily updates.

I’m consolidating Tuesday, Wednesday, and today of this week into one post in order to make up for the days I missed.

Positives that have happened this week: My students had their first test of the year with me, and so far the average is an 80%. By comparison, last year’s averages usually hovered between the forties and fifties this time of year.

I got a shitton of school supplies I requested from the district, including ALL OF THE BALLOONS muahaha. Also, maple syrup. Lots of maple syrup. For science.

Still haven’t had to give any referrals…. All detentions have been for chewing gum. None for disrespect. Fingers crossed that this trend continues…

Intrinsic Motivation in Education


This is a great passage from the assigned reading I’m doing in my TESOL classroom practices class about intrinsic motivation in today’s education.

"The school curriculum is dictated by institutions and can be far removed from even the teacher’s choice. Parents’ and society’s values and wishes…
