People First.

As a future educator, advocacy is an important factor I must consider in empowering all of my students.

Inclusion of children with special needs and disabilities begins with adults who are respectful of all children’s rights to belong and participate fully in early care and education settings. All children have the right to dignity and respect and not to be judged by their special needs or disability. To ensure this right of respect, I will use People First Language.

Fall Radar

Fall premieres have begun and of course I’m all wrapped up in deciding which new shows I will invest in. Of course, I’m still plugging my present faves like New Girl, Mindy Project, Agents of Shield, and soon Parks and Rec and Community again, but I cant get enough of these on point pilots. Thus begins a compilation of all the new shows that have caught my interest.

  • A to Z
  • Bad Judge
  • Selfie
  • Red Band Society
  • Mulaney

And we can’t forget the mid-season shows that haven’t aired yet like Agent Carter, Marry Me, and Benched!

Good Luck to all the shows out there and may the ratings be ever in your favor! x

BONUS: With new shows come reflection on the old shows, and more specifically their finales!


Of course, I haven’t seen every TV show ever so I can’t say this is a complete list but from my experience- these shows had the most memorable ends- for better or worse.


  • The Office
  • Friends
  • Boy Meets World


  • How I Met Your Mother
  • Happy Endings
  • I cant’ think of any more but i know there is

Ok so I haven’t seen that many finales but the point still stands.
