The Oscars 2016 Recap
The Oscar Red Carpet + Oscar Fashion
P’Trique and The Platform, inspired by E Fashion Police (but with a twist), took over the Oscars red carpet. Fashion guru P’Trique had the pleasure of asking the Oscar nominees what designers they were wearing and conducting Snapchat Q&As. All while streaming on Facebook Live. P’Trique kicked off the Oscars red carpet with an IG photo shoot featuring many celebs like Maria Menounos and Brad Goreski. We also managed to run into Oscar winners Whoopi Goldberg, Reese Witherspoon, Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander and Oscar nominee Rooney Mara! The highlight of our red carpet experience had to be the Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet reunion (*cough Titanic reunion) and our Snapchat Q&A with “ Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill. As for Oscar fashion, the nominees came to slay. Our favorites were Alicia Virkander in Louis Vuitton, Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein, Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive, Piyanka Chopra in Zuhair Murad, Charlize Theron & Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, and Kerry Washington in Versace.

The Academy Awards & Oscar Ceremony:
The 88th Academy Awards, aka the Oscars, took place in Hollywood last night. The Oscars is the night the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ voting members gather to celebrate the cinematic achievements of the film industry. This year it was hosted by comedian Chris Rock. Between Chris Rock’s Oscar jokes and the Oscars opening montage this award ceremony was a star studded affair. From the Stacey Dash Black History Month joke, the Minions Oscar presentation, to Jacob Tremblay the youngest Oscar presenter in history; the show was not short of hijinx. Our favorite moments included: finally getting to hear the Leonardo DiCaprio Oscar speech. Leo (The Revenant) beat out Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl) and Matt Damon (The Martian) for Best Actor. Best Actress was awarded to Brie Larson (Room); up against Cate Blanchett (Carol), Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn), and Jennifer Lawrence (Joy). Also Alicia Vikander won Best Supporting actress for The Danish Girl against Rachel McAdams (Spotlight), Rooney Mara (Carol), and Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs). We most enjoyed all the Oscar Best Original Song performances. Sam Smith Writings On The Wall won, The Weeknd performed Earned It from 50 Shades of Grey, and the Lady Gaga Oscar Performance of Until It Happens To You was powerful. She stood united with brave survivors of sexual assault. Then finally Spotlight won Best Picture.
Since her incredibly hilarious debut in the viral YouTube video “Shit Fashion Girls Say” quintessential fashion IT girl P’Trique can be found seated front row at NYFW, slaying the red carpet and sipping skinny vodka sodas at the hottest parties with Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, and Kendall Jenner. From vacationing with The Osbournes, judging fashion models with Tyra Banks on “America’s Next Top Model,” to promoting her hit single “P’Trique Chic Freaks,” this fashionista shows no signs of slowing down. Living off the residuals of her more than bankable viral fashion video follow up “Shit Little Fashion Girls Say with Princesstard,” P’Trique has all she needs to keep up with the best fashion trends. P’Trique isn’t just a chic socialite, she’s produced never before seen fashion lookbooks, easy makeup tutorials, a designer bag collection, videos on how to blend bellami hair extensions, and hosted several talk shows and step and repeats. There’s no argument this fashion girl and beauty guru is a rising star.

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.
