Checking in- Back to school teaching Middle School Math




I'm teaching at the same school, Carver Academy. This time I'm teaching only 6th grade math. My children are adorable and most work hard and are eager to please and learn. I decided about two weeks ago to shampoo, condition and bantu my locks. The kids noticed quickly, my new "do". It was so cute, when most of the compliments came from my little AA boys. "Miss E, you look pretty today
...I like your hair...you look really nice today." The girls gave compliments as well, all colors, but to think that adding a little curl made all that whoopla was interesting. The curls came out tight and are still squiggling around now. Jen's promising to help me finish retightening my hair this weekend, so I'm looking forward to another shampoo and set. Maybe this time, I'll try soft spike curls or a braidout. I used setting lotion and stayed under the dryer. I know when I do that after bantuing that the style will last well into two weeks like it has. If I use no setting lotion, I'm lucky if I make it a week. My locks are getting soooo long. It's hard to believe that in 8 weeks, I'll be celebrating 6 years with my Sisterlocks. Amazing! I'll update more after my birthday.

I know teaching must be a valuable experience. 6th grade is such a tough transition for many. Keep up the good work! I love, love love your hair!!!

Funny the things that little boys notice. Why is it that by the time they become husbands, they take no notice of women's hair? It sounds like your year has gotten off to a great start, and in math no less. You're doing a great service to our future.

motiv8ed4trubeauty,

I doing my best helping my babies grow into maturity in middle school. Thank you for your kind compliment and dropping by.

Allecia,

I think by the time they become men, they know in most cases, they can't "touch" their woman's hair. So, with natural hair and locs, we need to let the men get into our hair. Then I think they'll start taking notice. Thanks for dropping by.

Charizma00,

Thanks for dropping by. Teaching is definitely not for the faint at heart. Blessings to you!!!
