Garden update: My garden is doing well. This week I'm blogging about the positives (I'm still sad about my celosia.) My mint and spiny plant have been doing great.It's honestly the best to see this plant grow each and every day. When I initially got this plant I didn't even know that it would blossom flowers. Much to my delight, it is now in full bloom. :)
My meal this week is roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables. The mashed potatoes are fairly simple-mash up organic baked potatoes and add butter (butter makes everything better.) The veggies are even simpler because they're pre-mixed and all I had to do was add them to boiling water.
Now here's my steps in preparing the chicken!
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees and then pat down the chicken legs.
Step 2: Season with black pepper, salt, and garlic powder.
Step 3: Place on pan and cook 35 minutes.
Step 4: Let sit for a couple minutes (to let them cool down) and enjoy.
Hey guys, this week I read "Trauma Sensitive Schools are Better Schools" and part 2 of the article. These articles were hands down completely amazing. The first article discussed the need to be a trauma-sensitive and trauma-informed classroom. Instead of immediately suspending, Lincoln High School teachers first asked the student the simple question "what is wrong?" This school focuses on finding the root of the student's discipline problem and punishes the student with in school suspension rather than out of school suspension. The second article continued on with this topic and talked about the strategies teachers should use to implement this concept. For example, rewarding good behavior, and positive reinforcement. All in all, I definitely see myself being a big supporter of this idea when I am a teacher. I think that being more trauma sensitive is essential because we (the teachers) don't always know what's going on in our student's lives.
