My mom had me later in life, and she used to be an actual hippie growing up, and she now has a sort of grown-up, respectable flower child style. I emulated that somewhat as a child and teen, but I've become much more of a higher-fashion metalhead now.
haha at one point my whole wardrobe consisted of basically my family's clothes! my mom would give me her old 70s/80s t shirts, vests, leggings, i would cut up my dad's old jeans into shorts and take my brother's button ups!
My mom and I have a similar taste for classic pieces that can last for many years. She also taught me how to look for quality clothing but recently I've been more adventurous. I've been trying to mix styles, trendy and classic and accessorize. But my love for the basics always goes back to my Mom's style
"The taste I have & the body I have are two different things" OMG!!!! THAT IS ME! I'm currently trying to lose weight so I can wear the clothes I really want to wear! Not that chubby girls can't be high fashion... But I know for me, personally, I would be a lot more confident & feel more comfortable. My mom is a sweatpants/goodwill t shirt type of woman...& unfortunately so am I (for now). But I'm really into the grunge look!
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
