teacher living

anonymous asked:

What advice would you give someone trying to learn the violin, but goes to a University with no violin teachers and lives nowheres near one? I got about six months worth of lessons a year ago, and was learning vibrato and shifting. Didn't get too far into it. But now, I think I may have to teach myself but don't want to develop bad technique. Thanks.

hm actual violin players do you have any tips


A substitute teacher in California got banned for wearing a Black Lives Matter button

  • A 75-year-old substitute teacher at Clovis West High School in Fresno, California, was banned from working at the school last month after he wore a Black Lives Matter button to class.
  • On Nov. 8, the Clovis Unified School District told him he was no longer allowed to teach at Clovis West.
  • Roberts, who is white, had worked for the district 15 years. 
  • An incident report stated that students were offended by the pin, and that Roberts was not following the lesson plan. Read more

advice for college freshmen:

tolkien your essays; hemingway your emails

essays are tangents and rabbit holes and diversions, woven together with lots of unnecessary descriptive words to demonstrate a proficient understanding of a subject you were meant to research in more depth but did not, in place of other pursuits, or could not, because you chose your subject poorly, and so now you must flesh out an arduous ten-page research paper and convince your scrutinizing instructor that you are well-versed in the topic at hand.

emails are blunt. say what you mean. be specific. end it quickly.

At this point I am just impressed. and those freaking #’s took me wayyyy to long.

Where does Keith, lance and pidge participate in the altean!Hunk and Altean! Shiro?

Keith grew up as a Galra with the blade of marmora. Notices he ages fast (like I hc Galrans have long lifespans) Keith discovers he is half human and travels to Earth to find some answers and look into clues for Voltron. Figures out how to shift into his human form, joins the Garrison, gets kicked out (similar in the show basically).

Lance and Pidge are gonna remain human (the reason for this is because Coran is an instructor at the garrison and Allura is a senior office, what position Shiro had and got suspended/fired which was do with with her digging around into her Father’s death. So Allura is Lance’s hero, that I dig and Coran is one of their instructors, their fav one)

I’m thinkin then Altean!Shiro crashes to Earth (maybe escaping the Galra) but also a piece of Altean technology which Allura discovers and links her to the castleship. Gang saves Altean!Shiro, find out Keith’s half alien then find Blue Lion and off they go into space and find Altean!Hunk.


there’s a good reason these tables are numbered honey, you just haven’t thought of it yet // panic! at the disco
