I’m Sexy and I Know It

I came across an article about the sexiest jobs of our generation and I was a little surprised to find TEACH FOR AMERICA at the #2 spot for sexiest jobs for women.

Read what they said about people in Teach for America:

This is flattering, albeit a little strange. I never think of my job as sexy, but I do notice people get a certain glimmer in their eyes when they hear I’m a TFA Corps member. I thought it was because they were reminiscing on one of their former teachers, now I know it’s because they think my job is sexy! Smart, sexy, and compassionate. Yep, that’s me! Lol.

As arbitrary as the list of  “The Top Ten Sexiest Jobs of Our Generation: Male & Female” is, it’s interesting to know what perceptions others have about your job. Of course, a lot of hot jobs were left off the list, but you can read the rest of the list here.

Welcome to TFA 2012 Induction

I volunteered at Houston’s Teach for America 2012 Induction last week. I had a fabulous time! I met some great individuals who are about to undergo intensive training to be transformed into transformational teachers. Being among such high energy, optimistic people recharged my passion for education.

Here are just a few of the incoming TFA Corps Members.

I’m proud that I will be working along-side these individuals in the fight for educational equity.

Good luck at Institute!

These are some of the outfits that I wore that week:

[Thrifted shorts]

[Thrifted shorts]

[Swapped blouse]

[Thrifted pants]

I had my hair in coils all week. At this point, the coils are about a month old. I started experimenting with updos and finally settled on the basket weave technique or the the “lobster tail” that many loc’d individuals sport. All you do is layer strands of hair on top of one another in chunks. I used to do this style with my yarn braids for updos.

People kept telling me they loved my locs, which was very flattering. It seems I have an eye for loc-look-alikes when it comes to hair. Later on in the summer, I may try another loc-look-alike style when I go to New York.

This is what the back of my head looked like:

I know. Ridiculous! Lol.
