Saw this pic on facebook this morning.  It made me recall a couple of things I’ve had to deal with in my profession this year with students and have witnessed with colleagues in the past as well.

Our students–of all ages–don’t understand the accessibility they are exposed to…they constantly assume it’s no big deal.

Social media is just that–SOCIAL –almost just like face to face, but THE DIFFERENCE IS today’s social (media) gives us this since of false protection, because we THINK we won’t have to suffer instant repercussions from WHATEVER we are posting.  It’s almost like we think no one will see it OR only the people we really want to see it will be the only viewers.

This is true for any postings –a simple selfie, a rant about our government, a picture telling someone they are number one with your middle finger instead of the index finger which really means something mean and vulgar AND THE LIST GOES ON…

It’s all accessible to anyone and EVERYone–NOT our selected few.  We forget this somehow.  We forget that what we type, what we take a picture of, what we post—is actually REAL.  It’s whatever we did prior to social media, but out there for an audience of a billion times more than it was before.

Looking at the picture above, I thought about us all…

THEN shared the picture and posted the words below along with it:

It’s not just 6th grade–It’s all ages. We are becoming so open to anything and everything that nothing is considered vulgar, kept sacred or left to our imagination. *sigh*

The end.

Random Photos

I was so bored today waiting at a competition I took my art students to. The waiting was crazy! So, I took some random photos to pass the time. Here are some I found— can you guess what they are???

FALL IS GRAND!

Fall is Grand!!!  Today was a wonderfully windy day full of beauty and I just happened to snap a picture or two.  Sharing one above. 🙂  God sure knows how to create some awesome pictures!  It’s insane how some people think all this beauty is some kind of coincidence.  What!?  Thank GOD for this beauty!

We also had our family photos done today by a former student (and family friend) of mine.  It was so great to talk with her and catch up and know that the pics she took are going to be great.  She also made me feel like a great teacher–that is such a blessing, because we all know that, at times, we question ourselves.  We doubt the impact or influence we have on those around us.  It’s so nice when God allows others to give us a boost of confidence. 

I so appreciate her words today that made me feel so good—I want to seek out those who have helped teach me anything important along the way or made me strive to keep on keepin’ on.  I’ve tried in the last few years to really do that–to show others what they have  done for me.  I have blogged in the past about my mentors and that is who I’m talking about now.  There have been so many in my life that wouldn’t even consider themselves “mentors,” but there is no doubt they had a major influence on me.  I think it’s so important to recognize these people and let them know they helped you in some way or made you feel great about yourself or just gave you a great example through some situation they were in.  I can think of so many who fit one or more of these things.  I think I will go right now and let some of them know that I thought of them today.

FALL IS GRAND!
