Students learn more from what you model for them than what you tell them. We must model emotional awareness and wellness. Feel out loud and navigate the feelings in front of them

Never underestimate the power of this phrase on someone who is working through something "I see you. Keep going"

Senior apologized to me today for missing a few classes because work is changing her hours & she needs the money. Told her I get it. We’re all adjusting and figuring this out. We definitely need to give that space and those pauses to listen.

Knowledge of self is hip hop & pedagogy’s taproot. This means all aspects: emotionally, physically and mentally.

Please remember to be trauma informed when doing this kind of work. Who are the students who may be triggered by activities or discussions that are happening in class? Do they have the supports or tools to cope when they leave the classroom? Things to think about

One of my students ended up near tears last week. She apologized for turning in a bunch of work late & was surprised there was no penalty. She said she gets the same pressure at home even with the pandemic. I let it go but she couldn’t. Poor kid.

Check on your "good" students, too. Overachieving, hypervigilance of other's feelings, etc can also be trauma responses, but are often overlooked, especially in girls, because that's how patriarchy expects girls to act.

Hip-Hop is so powerful that is manifests connections that cross the Atlantic for youth who may have never left their hood

Sometimes you gotta go through it to get to it. This quote reminds me of Joe Budden's brilliant mixtape series "Mood Muzik." Every line he penned felt like he was exorcising his ills... And making the listener honest with theirs.

I listen to the silence. The turned up lips, the shrugs of shoulders, their deep stares. Even on zoom, you can build relationships by paying attention to them.

You can't talk about emotional wellness and continue to uphold the systems of oppression that contribute to everyday traumas. It's just as important to work towards overthrowing capitalism, white supremacy, & patriarchy as it is to ask students, "How are you, really?"

As we look at Hip-Hop as we pursue emotional intelligence and wellness we are venturing in as individuals and educators. We reveal as we heal and heal as we reveal!

Hip-hop cyphers, mixtapes, collaborations, beat cyphers, and freestyle challenges are ALL community-defined spaces for emotional wellness. Each created as a direct response to the lack of culturally sound counseling environments inside and outside of schools

I've worn a hat (backwards) & 1 or 2 gold chains every day this year. Why? Because that's me. I'm modelling the power of self-expression & comfortability for my Ss. No more questioning, "Is this too 'hood?" or "Will this be accepted?" I've conformed far too long

How can we use action research to active youth in the co-construction of their own school spaces for healing? and I wrote a joint exploring youth-led Hip-Hop studio construction as healing spaces in a school in the BX
