adult-education

just discovered there’s some business (???) mere blocks from my house called “Cuckold Relationship, LLC”

yelp has them categorized as adult education which, sure yeah i guess

king-of-the-gay  asked:

I saw you do a fic rec and I wanted to know if you know of any good 8th year drarry fics or any drarry fics where Harry and Draco come back to hogwarts as professors

Anonymous said: Hiya! Do you know of any fics with Drarry teaching at hogwarts? Thank you!!

Anonymous said: So first of all, your recs are amazing and perfect omg 😍 and secondly, can you rec me your favorite fics where Harry is a DADA teacher (either with or without Draco being a potions professor).

HELLO, YES!!! Professor!Drarry is one of my favorite things ever!!! This list will cover all types of professing—all classes and some in which only one of them is a Professor :)

(Also for @king-of-the-gay, here are my 8th year drarry recs! I hope you enjoy both lists!)

Professor Drarry Recs

Professor Potter and his Magical Menagerie by dracogotgame (7.5K)- Harry Potter descends on Hogwarts with a horde of magical beasts. Professor Malfoy is not amused.
THIS FIC IS A HILARIOUS ADORABLE MASTERPIECE. It’s one of my favorites and Draco is so oblivious and he thinks he’s feared and hated but really he and Harry are the students’ favorite Professors and it’s just SO CUTE. (Potions Prof. Draco and Care of Magical Creatures Prof. Harry!)

All Life is Yours to Miss by Saras_Girl (115K)- Professor Malfoy’s world is contained, controlled, and as solitary as he can make it, but when an act of petty revenge goes horribly awry, he and his trusty six-legged friend are thrown into Hogwarts life at the deep end and must learn to live, love and let go.
I will never stop loving this fic. Contains petty pranks, one of those pranks going horribly wrong, Draco feeling guilty, a giant beetle named Stanley who is my favorite OC ever, Draco learning to be a fucking amazing Professor who cares, and hours of (Transfiguration) Professor Malfoy sitting by Flying Instructor Potter’s bedside. UTTERLY LOVELY.

The Re-education of Draco Malfoy by Veritas03 (31K)- In the aftermath of the war, it has been noted that many of the young witches and wizards who attended school during the second rise of Voldemort have received sub-standard educations. As a result, Hogwarts opens an adult education program in the summer to bring these students up to par in the workforce. Draco Malfoy, desperate to pass the NEWT for DADA, is among them. But his hopes are dashed when, on the first day of class, Draco discovers – to his horror – the new DADA professor has never even taught before – and is a student himself, still trying to pass Potions. And anyway – just how is Draco supposed to stay focused in class when Professor Potter is so totally hot?
I feel like the summary says it all for this fic. Being forced to go back to Hogwarts and Harry is Draco’s DADA Professor?! YES 100000000 TIMES

Newts by Astolat (14K)- “I’m twenty-eight!” Harry said. “I’ve been an Auror for ten years! You want me to go back to Hogwarts now?“
Pretty much the reverse of the above fic! Harry, on the cusp of becoming Head Auror, is forced to go back and get his NEWTS because of some ancient law. Potions Professor Draco does not make it easy for him ;). TRULY AMAZING!!

Homecoming by November Snowflake (27K)- Harry thinks spending two weeks as a guest lecturer at Hogwarts will offer the perfect chance to get away from his troubles. Then he meets his assigned faculty guide: Potions Master Draco Malfoy.
The kids are great in this fic and the development of Harry and Draco’s relationship is (of course!!) fabulous as well. I especially love it because both of them interact a lot with each other’s children AS THEIR PROFESSORS <333

Healing Touch by Digitallance & Arineat (19.5K)- After an accident forces Harry away from professional Quidditch and back to Hogwarts, he discovers the healing abilities of a certain former Slytherin.
Found this fic while searching for massage!drarry (hehehe) and was NOT DISAPPOINTED. Harry is the new flying instructor and Draco is the potions professor who is quite willing to help Professor Potter with his injury ;)

In Pieces by dysonrules (85K)- Harry returns to Hogwarts as the new DADA instructor, only to find his teaching efforts thwarted by a very familiar ghost.
THIS FIC THO! It is amazing and touching and it just took me apart and then put me back together again. It has all the angst you would expect to find considering Draco is a ghost but also I SWEAR THERE IS A HAPPY ENDING AND IT MAKES SENSE AND IS NOT PREDICTABLE OR CLICHE AND IDK HOW SHE EVER THOUGHT OF IT <3

More Than That by joosetta (11K)- This is a story about two 52 year old men who refuse to age gracefully.
Okay I love reading about middle-aged drarry, and they are at their best here. Harry is the new DADA Professor, Draco is horrified, and then their relationship develops slowly and it’s sweet and funny and everything heartwarming <3

Boom Clap (The Sound of my Heart) by @femmequixoticand @noeeon (39.5K)- Post-war Hogwarts has been energized by its new teaching fellows program. Where once bitter enmity divided the wizarding community, Malfoy and Potter chummily patrol hallways together whilst Granger and Zabini seek lost parts of the castle at McGonagall’s behest and Chang supervises Quidditch when not lecturing in Charms. It’s a veritable wizarding utopia and life is predictable for the first time in years. Which is, of course, when everything blows apart as the result of a drunken dare and Malfoy’s life is ruined beyond his capacity to repair it. Ever. In a million years.
Teaching fellows counts as professors, right? Right??? WELL I DON’T CARE because I love this fic and there is hallway patrol and EXPLOSIONS and pining!draco and I WANT YOU TO READ IT.

Transfigurations by Resonant (71K)- Five years after Voldemort’s defeat, Harry returns to England to help re-open Hogwarts.
First of all, Draco is the Muggle Studies Professor and BFFs with Hermione, and if that isn’t enough to draw you in (who are you?!), Hogwarts is newly reopening and there’s all kinds of daring, suspenseful adventure AND everything is exploding AND Harry is a pro at American magic, and you should really read it!!!!!

The Man in the Scarlet Cloak by @bixgirl1 (16.5K)- There’s usually a better time and place to participate in seduction than the Forbidden Forest. Unless, of course, it’s Mating Season. In which Draco is sneaky but not sneaky enough, Harry is confident but goes a bit mad, and the Trees are either incredibly romantic or just sort of perverts.
This fic has very little to do with actual teaching but DRACO IS A POTIONS FELLOW COLLECTING INGREDIENTS AND TALKING TO TREES AND HARRY IS AN AUROR COLLECTING FLOWERS AND WANKING IN THE FOREST IT’S NOT AS WEIRD AS IT SOUNDS (ONLY MAYBE IT IS) AND YOU MUST GO READ IT THIS MOMENT <3

‘Twixt the Sun and Sward by November Snowflake (30.5K)- A potions mishap has Harry and Draco meeting on entirely new—or is it old?—ground.
This is not your typical Professor fic, because it has de-aged!Harry living with Potions Professor Malfoy, who is forced to take care of him and who slowly realizes that Harry’s childhood was not quite how he had always imagined. VERY CUTE. Also note that it’s marked as an unfinished series, but when I read it, it felt very complete! :)

Love Actually by DracoWillHearAboutThis (17.5K)- “Harry,” she said quietly. “How long have you been teaching at Hogwarts now?”
Harry frowned, caught off-guard by the question.
“Six years, three months, and I guess about two weeks?,” he answered hesitantly.
“And how much of this time have you spent pining over our Charms professor?,” she continued, eyes flashing dangerously.
When even Minerva McGonagall wants to have a conversation about Harry’s love life, Harry realizes that it might be time to actually do something about this little crush of his. Since apparently, everyone knows, anyways.
“Everyone?!,” Harry repeated, his voice uncomfortably high-pitched in his panic.
“Everyone!”

Drarry / Love Actually crossover in which they are both Professors and yes you DID need this in your life.

Lessons in Humility by playout (86K)- After the dissolution of his marriage and a good bit of soul-searching, Harry returns to Hogwarts as the new Defense teacher. Go figure, it happens to be the same year Draco takes over the role of Potions Master. Neither man is happy about this turn of events. Will they be able to set aside their differences and learn a thing or two about trust and humility on the way? (Spoiler Alert: Yes. Very much so.)
This fic is EIGHTY SIX THOUSAND WORDS OF FLUFF AND I LOVED EVERY SECOND (Potions Prof. Draco & DADA Prof. Harry)

“Sex Education soley teaches you about the anatomy’s significance during sex. Why are we not taught about its pleasure?” - Professor GAIA: Adult Educator

Ecclesiastes

Jumblr & Frumblr, any tips on teaching Ecclesiastes? I’ve actually taught it multiple times before, but am now developing my own curriculum for the first time. There’s so much to work with and at the same time nothing (which sounds like something that would be in Ecclesiastes). I think in terms of themes I’m going to talk about futility in social justice and how to reconcile that? And maybe compare it with existentialist works?

Bathroom

Do you remember being in middle school? Horrible, right? Every action is being judged. Embarrassment is not minor. Ever. Even when people are not bullying you, even when girls are not whispering about you, even when you are not getting beaten up, middle school is hard. It is the worst.

And high school? Remember how significant clothes were? Music was? Friends were? Because you were forming your identity. Because you were deciding who you were. Because you were becoming yourself, every day, in the face of so many trials and obstacles.

Would you go through that again?

Now, imagine all of that happening to you. Imagine that time in your life and the depth of your emotions.

Now, imagine you have to pee. Like, really, really bad.

Imagine that the bathroom is not a safe space.

Imagine you cannot just go in and pee, no matter how badly you have to do so.

Imagine that at your most vulnerable, you are being most judged.

Sorry, not you.

Sorry, not here.

Sorry, we, the adults tasked with educating you and keeping you safe, we have decided you don’t know anything about yourself and we know better than you do.

We know EVERYTHING. And if you are misguided enough to think know you are a girl and you should use the girls room, we know that is not true. If you are foolish enough to believe know you are a boy and you should use the boys room, we know that  is not right.

Never mind that you LIVE INSIDE THAT BODY. We know it better than you do. We know it so well, that when you have to pee, we get to tell you where to do it.

Never mind if that embarrasses you. Never mind if your ears are burning and your eyes are smarting, and your heart is aching and you are wondering what is wrong with you and if you deserve to live.

Because WE decided that the imaginary comfort of your peers was more important than the real and traumatic discomfort you feel.

Yeah, imagine that.

Because that is what America just told a whole group of young people.

Now tell me this isn’t a big deal. Tell me this isn’t a civil rights issue. Tell me more about how this doesn’t prove we are headed down a dark path in our nation.

Here is your public comment, Mr. Sessions, Ms. DeVos, Mr. President.

This. Is. Wrong.

This. Is. Mean.

This. Is. Dangerous.

Contained within is a list of career path choices for each Zodiac sign.  This list pertains to having the zodiac sign on the 10th house cusp (midheaven) of your birth chart.  These can also work for overall sign dominance in a chart.  Your 2nd house cusp sign can also show areas where you can gain income with these signs for alternate possibilities.

It really sucks that queer youths and young adults have so little education on their own sexuality, simply because sex education is incredibly taboo, meaning that they’re more susceptible to being taken advantage of or taking advantage of others in their first relationships, because they never learned how to be in a relationship.

It really sucks that queer youths practically jump into long-distance relationships or unhealthy relationships because they have so little opportunity to even meet new queer people, much less hope for a relationship.

And it really, REALLY sucks that there’s still a huge struggle for ace, aro, bi, and pan people to even be recognized in the community because some people don’t see them as fit to belong, yet they’re ostracized by mainstream media and marginalized by their families, same as a lot of us, and they have to sit and be told by random people that they’re not normal or not queer enough.

We’re all seeking acceptance. We’re all a family. Don’t turn away from family out of judgement, because most of us damn well know what it feels like, and you have no business making people go through it again.

Binny Yanga (1958-2015) was a member of the National Planning Commission of India and an Indian social worker. She founded the Oju Welfare Association (OWA), dedicated to eliminating social issues like child marriage and forced marriage in India. In 2012 she was awarded the Padma Shri, the fourth highest Indian civilian award, by the Indian Government.

After her studies she became a teacher, during which time she set up a shelter home for destitute girls and an adult education centre. In 1989 she became one of the first female police officers in her region, but she resigned after a year to become a full time social worker.

why do other white people try to pretend they’re some kind of saints? you don’t get bonus points or some shit for acting like you’re a flawless ally to poc. I’m white as mashed potatoes, and I try my best to be a good ally to poc, I fuck up.

I have a bad habit of talking about race issues that don’t involve me instead of just boosting the voices of the people it does involve that I’m trying so hard to break, I have thought said and done racist things even today as an educated adult I still find myself saying or thinking things that are wildly uncool.

Acknowledging that as white people, we fuck up like a lot, is the most important part of being allies to poc. what matters is catching racist behavior and bad habits, stopping and pulling yourself back to examine this behavior and go to whatever lengths you need to not do it again.

no white person is a saint that’s never racist, we’ve all done and thought and said it and benefit from a system that actively puts us above and ahead of poc. ( even in queer communities my voice will often be chosen over a person who isn’t white )

admitting and doing what you can to combat this shit is the first step to actually helping poc.

Adult Education | Open

The student body got a bad reputation

(Oh, yeah, oh, yeah)

What they need is adult education

You go back to school

It’s a bad situation

(Oh, yeah, oh, yeah)

What you want is an adult education

Oh, yeah

Sixth period English – he had two more hours left before he could go home and delve back into working on his novel. Unfortunately, the clock seemed to go slower the longer he stared at it. Running his hands through a thick mop of black hair, Castiel Novak groaned at the slowness of time and the stupidity of highschool. Most of what they were teaching them he was sure was pretty common sense, and almost no one cared about anything they were saying anyway.

He was staring at the books on his desk, waiting for the teacher to give some kind of instruction, when a hush suddenly fell over his classmates and someone at the front of the room cleared their throat. Folding his arms on top of his desk as he looked up, he saw nothing unusual at first until his eyes fell on him. He was obviously new, but that didn’t really seem to matter much considering his cocky grin. As the teacher droned on, introducing him – apparently his name was Dean Winchester – and assigning him a book, Castiel discreetly studied him, deciding he looked like a jock and was probably going to join one of the sports teams. Shrugging, what did it matter to him anyways?, he started to lay his head down on his arms when the teacher called out his name.

“Castiel. Castiel Novak?”

“Y-yes Ms. Claire?” He asked, shyly lifting his head to stare in apprehension at the teacher. They were only fifteen minutes into the class, surely he hadn’t done something wrong already!

“Oh! There you are!” Ms. Claire beamed at him, pushing her glasses up her nose as she turned to the young man standing next to her. “Dean, why don’t you take a seat next to him? Castiel will be your guide around the school until you’ve memorized where your classes are.”

Castiel blanched, open mouthed at the teacher as she spoke. He was going to be a guide for him?! Slouching at his desk, he dragged a hand over his face as he groaned in frustration. This was going to be a much longer day than he’d like.

Badass Black Women History Month:
Celebrating 28 Black Women Who Said,
“Fuck it, I’ll Do It!”

Day 13: Septima Poinsette Clark
1898-1987
“The Mother of the Movement”

Septima Poinsette Clark is one of the most important people in the Civil Rights Movement. She worked closely with MLK, Jr. and W.E.B. DuBois and was the first woman to gain a position on the Southern Christian Leadership Conference board. Septima was a teacher from South Carolina who believed education was the greatest tool marginalized groups had to fight systems of injustice. 

While MLK called her “The Mother of the Movement,” she faced sexism within the Civil Rights Movement. Her position was constantly questioned and her influence has largely been overshadowed by the men she worked with. That’s a damn shame though, because Septima was badder than all these dudes. Her father was born into slavery while her mother was a free woman from Haiti. Septima’s mother refused to ever serve any white person and raised her daughters with the same principals. They were never to be servants to anyone. 

When Septima decided to become a teacher, she noticed the baffling inequality she and her students were subjected to. She was paid $35 per week to teach 132 black students with only one other teacher. The white school across the street only had 3 students and 1 teacher who was paid $85 per week. This inspired Septima to join the NAACP where she fought for equal pay. After 40 years of employment in the Charleston school system, she was fired from her teaching position due to her political involvement with the NAACP. She lost her pension and was seen as a pariah in the community. Even at a fundraiser designed to help her, people refused to have their picture taken with her for fear that they would lose their own jobs.

This ended up being a blessing for Septima. She moved to Tennessee where she joined the Highlander Folk School. There, Septima focused on adult education and literacy. She was inspired by her own father who could not write his name growing up. Septima realized the best way to fight the racist voting rules of the south was to arm people with knowledge. She established her own “Citizenship Schools” that gave black people self-pride, cultural-pride, literacy, and a sense of one’s citizenship rights. Over 10,000 teachers would train in her Citizenship Schools and open their own chapters, teaching over 25,000 people by 1961.

By 1958, 37 of Septima’s students were able to pass the voter registration test. By 1969, 700,000 black people were able to become registered voters thanks to Septima’s work.
