Strong is the new skinny, right? What an awesome feeling I get after some #COREDEFORCE With the current events and crazy students...nothing a little MMA kicking and punching won’t improve!! 💪🏼 #getyourkicks#moMMA
From a personal friend:
This is a message from Kevin's AP World Teacher at Stoneman if anyone would like to write a letter to her students.
Diane Wolk-Rogers is one of many teachers at Stoneman Douglas High, she is reaching out for help. She wrote the following: "It is with a heavy heart and clouded eyes I am reaching out to this community of wonderful teachers to help my students heal from the horrific event they have experienced. Our kids are amazing and they want to get back to school and continue learning but first they need time to just be together and begin the process of healing. I would like to greet them all on the first day back with letters of support. Not the email kind or the texting kind but real letters handwritten and signed by kids from our amazing community. I want them to hold the envelopes addressed from around the world to see that they are not alone and there is still kind and caring people in this world. If you would like to participate please send the letters to the address posted.
Cheers 🍷 Because it’s a Tuesday, and mama needs to chillax...after my workout, lol. BONUS...I didn’t know until after I paid but see that little yellow sticker? The wine was on clearance!! What? Happy dance!
Want to make a difference? Start here. Tell your child, your student, your neighbor, a child in your life any one of these. Children need to feel safe, loved and that they are seen and heard. THIS can make a difference. #neveragain#enoughisenough#bekind ❤️
Yippee! Visited my friend Cristina’s Grand Opening of her @angrybooch tap room, the 1st kombucha tap room in all of Miami! She currently has flavors like Pineapple/Turmeric, Honey/Lavender, Cherry, Hibiscus, Rose, Guava and Jalapeño/Passion Fruit! The boys did the kombucha challenge (lol) and got one bottle mixed with all of the flavors!! Cherry mixed with the honey is awesome too! She’s at local farmers markets too so give her a follow to see her schedule. So happy for you, Cristina! ❤️ Scroll left to see more! #girlboss#pioneer
Be outraged. Be heartbroken. Be furious. Be sad. Be devastated. Be motivated. We need to stand with the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends, schoolmates and each other against violence. This 19 yr old had no business carrying the weapons he had...and yet the laws allowed him to easily obtain them. We can’t keep asking “what’s next?” “who’s next?” It’s already too late. Start talking, come up with ideas...ways to spread love, not hate. Praying for all affected today...too close to home. #seesomethingsaysomething#parkland#floridastrong
What do teachers need after a LONG day of rowdy kiddos? Stress relief!! What better way to get it than dancing and sweating to fun music! So happy we did, even with it being Valentines Day, lol!!! #workoutwednesday#teachersrock
Parents of middle schoolers (and 5th graders), please read.
This isn't about me or my husband (who originally wrote this), it's about what's currently happening to our son, and how we can learn from each other in similar situations, by sharing resolutions. Carson has been bullied at his school Palmetto Middle for several months now, on and off. He's been holding some of it inside and shared more with us last night for about 2 hours (thankfully, he opened up). Even though the school is a no bully zone #zerotolerance , kids know how to get away with their actions when teachers aren’t around. We as his parents will not put up with it, as no parent (or child) should.
As his mama bear, I wanted to go to school with today and give these kids a swift shake and lecture! As a teacher I wanted to make sure they felt consequences (with their parents involvement). He's being body shamed and being called “gay” for playing golf, told his golf success is stupid and fake, even shamed for his “cheap” sneakers (Under Armour), what!?!? Typical of middle schoolers to target and make fun...and that’s been the response...”it’s just for fun”
We call BS!! When our son is in tears because of the “fun” these boys are having...it’s NOT fun, nor funny. The taunting, teasing and taking away his personal items needs to stop. 💯% stop!
We hope to get those kids’ parents involved. We are pretty positive they have zero clue what their kids are doing and saying. We even told Carson to invite the kids to the range to try golf out (which they say is easy)! It costs nothing to be a good person and the return can be tenfold! I know the ages between 11-14 are really tough and when kids are becoming more independent, and seeking peer acceptance. Please, whether you have a middle school aged child (or know one)...tell them how much you love them!! Tell them about their strengths and the wonders they hold. Tell them it’s not about pricey sneakers or the newest smartphone. It’s Whats between their ears and in their hearts that makes the difference. When kids feel good about themselves, they don’t need to tear others down.
Carson got 2nd today in Boys 11-12 @gcjgf_juniorgolf He shot 78. A triple bogey cost him 1st #mentalmistakes 😡 We know everyone likes stats 😂 🏌️FIR 10/14. GIR 10/18. Putts 31. Tough day, but same for everyone. SE 18-22 mph wind & ☔️ made the course really long from 5,700 yds Par 70 w/ only two Par 5’s. Had 3 birdies 🐦 . The par 4’s played long having to hit 5 woods into the wind for 2nd shots. No excuses. Onward to the next one, can’t win them all! 😉🏆 More chipping practice 🤦♂️😞 #thebaezboys @wilsongolf @scoutsportsgolf @golfprobelts #stayconfident
