Last night Mrs. Hinson said “When you first met your best friend for the first time in high school” but I’ve known mine since day one of elementary school👧🏻 We’re honestly just each other’s family at this point and I’m so so glad to have you in my life. We have so many funny stories and sad ones together so we’ve definitely gone through everything together. I love you and don’t you ever become a stranger!💗
Big ups to NDA 5th-8th graders who did a phenomenal job at the 5th Annual SD Catholic School STREAM Festival, where we imbue #STEAMedu with our religious faith. This year, our students took home 1st place in the NASA Challenge and 3rd in the Rokenbok Competition. Congratulations NDA superstars!
It’s been close to a year since I’ve started sharing the History of Racism and AntiRacism with you all. There have been six trainings and now over 250 folx are using this in their schools, classrooms, and communities. It’s being used for folx of all ages in multiple countries!
"Hmm...interesting choice. Have you considered choosing one of the 100+ unread books you own rather than rereading this, human?"
Yes. Yes, I have. But, as this update will reveal, I'm in the mood for historical fiction/dramas at the moment & this title appears on @theroamingreader's 2018 "World Cup of Books" list so it feels like I'll be hitting two birds with one stone.
For those of you who don't know what this book is, I'm currently rereading "The Other Boleyn Girl" by Phillipa Gregory on this Bank Holiday weekend. It tells the story of 1521-1536 from Mary Boleyn's POV, exploring her relationship with the king & reaction to being replaced by her sister Anne. My familiarity with the true history & Gregory's representation of it is proving helpful in distracting me from the stress around work recently. Tomorrow, I'll finally get the video for subtitling & this whole thing will be over.
May hasn't been a great month for reading so that's the only book-related update I have for you this Sunday. My TV/film list is a fair bit longer though:
📺 "Elementary" (S1) - I've started at the beginning of this modern Sherlock Holmes show in the hopes of getting beyond S3.
📺 "Jamestown" (S1&2) - Set in C17th Virginia & based around the women who joined the original settlers, I saw S1 back in 2017 but am only now watching the rest. It's more about the stories of people than historical accuracy I think.
🎬 "Mary Queen of Scots" (2018) - Margot Robbie & Saoirse Ronan play two of Britain's important female monarchs in this film about Elizabeth I & her cousin MQS. Be wary of a few big changes to history in this one.
🎬 "Mortal Engines" (2018) - Based on Philip Reeve's book, I was surprised by how much I liked this film. There are some slightly irritating changes/omissions but overall, it's a decent adaptation in terms of cast & visual appeal.
🎬 "Robin Hood" (2018) - This one is constantly being compared to the terrible King Arthur film but I personally liked it. Taron Egerton & Tim Minchin were brilliant in this different approach to a story we all already know well.
How have you spent the long weekend? Have you read or watched anything good this week in general?

Wonka’s lickable wallpaper was part of our #classroomtransformation too! “The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries.” 🍓
Target wrapping paper for the win! How many kids do you think actually tried to lick it?! 😝😂
[NEWS] Elementary terá vilão “complicado”em sua temporada final
Em entrevista para o TV Line, o showrunner Rob Doherty falou um pouco sobre o novo vilão para a temporada final. “Eventualmente, Sherlock e Joan vão conhecer um novo personagem chamado Odin Reichenbach, interpretado por James Frain. O personagem é um gênio da tecnologia com bilhões de dólares à sua disposição. Ele comanda seu império de uma cobertura em Nova York, que é onde ele cruza caminho com Sherlock e Joan. Ele pede ajuda com um caso. “Eles ficam felizes em ajudar, já que Odin tem acesso a dados e informação, não apenas em Nova York, mas ao redor do país e do mundo. Então ele parece ser um bom amigo para os detetives terem. Mas como muitos bilionários da tecnologia, ele é uma pessoa complicada. À medida em que Sherlock e Joan se aproximam dele, eles percebem que há muito a se revelar sobre a forma que ele usa seu poder”, explica Doherty.
