That’s what “culturally responsive” looks like. Those kids will work their asses off for this teacher. They will stay in school and excel so as not to let him down, they in turn will benefit….and guess what, they’ll never ever forget him!!! Everything about that is awesome. Made my day. Kudos–again–to the teacher, and to the Globetrotters. Nothing but positivity there!
“God would never put a female soul into a male body bc he never makes mistakes.” Excuse me? God literally was so embarrassed by his human creations that he destroyed the whole entire Earth in a flood leaving only one guy’s family and a bunch of animals stuck on a boat together. What on Earth are you talking about ?!?!
The story of Noah is literally God going, “Fuck this, I’m starting over.”
Barry White Jr, a 5th grade English teacher in NC, has a special handshake for each one of his students
“I started with one simple handshake last year with a 4th grader. She would wait for me every morning before she’d go to class. She’d get in trouble sometimes for being late because she’d wait on the handshake.
This year I started making handshakes with the kids at recess. It was just one or two students and then it became contagious. I saw how much it meant to them, so I said, ‘Come on. Everyone come on.’ Then it was my full class, then it was kids from other classes. Now I have 3rd graders wanting to do it too.”
it’s nice to see teacher who are more than just uniform, who care about their students, as the individual people they are and want make learning and school enjoyable for these kids and encourage them. I wish every student, regardless of race, would treat every teacher, regardless of race, like this!
