Love is my Religion

ECC Day 363: “Love is my Religion” My oh my, Universe, you have opened my life to many beautiful humans & experiences on this ECC journey, that I would not have otherwise met or experienced. Veronica Njodinizeh, it was a pleasure to hear some life stories that led you to our shared moments, to get our belly laugh on, embrace our goofiness & vibrant energy. In that 2-hour time, which we both attest to, is one of our most precious resources, you gave a shout out to influential

A For Effort

ECC Day 362: “A For Effort” Noah & Summer emphasized the value of educators making an effort to get to know their students as whole people, not only through an academic lens. Thank you, educators, for being available for our youth; it positively effects their mental, social, emotional health & well-being! Hear more from Noah & Summer in their Educator Shout Out Interview; stay tuned to ECC @youtube . Always great to hangout with your family, @joyful_art_studio_cristeb @sumsum

Have I mentioned lately...?

ECC Day 361: “Have I mentioned lately...?” Have I mentioned lately that: *I thank every educator who has ever put in the heart work for young people? *I thank YOU so much for your support of me & helping me achieve my goals of the ECC!? *My love for @chipotle runs deep, & this true love will last longer than 15 years. <3 *I’m STOKED to soon no longer post on social media daily, and have some time back to be more present in my life...and less time behind a screen?! **Now watch

Makin’ Moves

ECC Day 359: “Makin’ Moves” We’re making moves, literally & figuratively. Our DVCA team is making student-centered moves to improve our multi-tiered system of supports! Each year I’m moved by how dedicated, passionate, & creative our team is; I’m grateful for you all! Moved back to my first year’s office. Excited to have my @rwemersoneagles neighbors closer. Thanks so much, Mike ( @coachbarronies ) & John, for your positive, “we’re going to finish what we started, & do it wel

Unconventional Solutions

ECC Day 358: “Unconventional Solutions” Opportunities to practice outside of the box thinking, solution- & action-focused behavior, flexibility & adaptability continue to present themselves as we reach the first day of school & the tail end of the ECC (8/28). In unfortunate, unideal circumstances, we can choose to be & remain in a state of anger, disappointment, bitterness & discouragement or, we can use those strong emotions to propel us forward to the next opportunity with

Flexing the Adaptability

ECC Day 357: “Flexing the Adaptability” Flexibility & adaptability shall be named in all job descriptions ever created; in my example specifically, education. Educators occasionally move classrooms/offices throughout their years, have new students, new circumstances to learn & grow from, ever-changing policies, procedures, curriculum, et cetera, that require various degrees of flexibility & adaptability. Remember your why, educators. Remember your why! It’s worth it...unless

From the Heart

ECC Day 356: “From the heart” “Authenticity...we can speak from the heart through tears and be silly’s as well! Plus, we authentically love Chipotle!” -Jennifer Terra ( @jenniferterra2 ) On a continuous journey of learning how to live authentically, speak & be from the heart, while being playful. Complex beings. Innate desire to connect & love. Life’s waves are better surfed in the company of others. ***9 DAYS TO #ChipInForEducation by donating to the ECC Fundraiser @gofundme

On the Weekend

ECC Day 355: “On the Weekend” On the weekend, you can find many educators all over the world - at home or at school - preparing lessons, student schedules, meetings, catching up on documentation, etc. for the day(s)/week(s) ahead. You get a hug and you get a hug, and you get a hug! You get a high-five and you get a high-five, and you get a high-five! You get a Chipotle bowl and you get a Chipotle bowl, and you get a @chipotle bowl! Channeling my inner @theellenshow @ellentube

Panda for Life

ECC Day 354: “Panda for Life!” I’m stoked to dive into my 6th year as a Panda at DVCA Jr. High School! Our grades 7-12 team & Project Based Learning (PBL) program are one-of-a-kind! I love & am proud to be part of the DVCA family & community, which is why it’s an integral part of the Educator Chipotle Challenge (ECC). From interviewing past & present students & educators, to fundraising money to support our educators with supplies they need to serve our students. While the EC

Power of the People

ECC Day 353: “Power of the People” It’s incredible to witness & experience firsthand what people can do when they come together for a cause, to inspire & effect positive change. People have rallied around me since day 1 of the ECC, to support educators, students & me kicking guac at eating @chipotle once a day for one year. People have shown up to gatherings; people have donated to the ECC Fundraiser @gofundme ; people have been very encouraging. Bobbi (@bobbi66v ) saw a need

Kindness Karma

ECC Day 352: “Kindness Karma” Kaelyn shares in her Educator Shout Out Interview, “One thing I have learned is that if you’re kind and you’re smiley and you’re joyful, it will come back to you.” THAT is kindness karma. It feels fulfilling to be kind, to be helpful, to be supportive, to show love. It also feels fulfilling to be treated kindly, to be helped, to be supported, and to be loved. At some point, you’re bound to receive what you give. Keep on giving. Keep on living. Ke

From Imagination to Purpose

ECC Day 351: “From Imagination to Purpose” A few days before the end of his Freshman year, Coen invited me to purchase his self-published book, “King’s Tales.” I’m so impressed with & proud of you, Coen! It was great to learn more of the imagination process & experiences that led up to this creation. It’s evidence of your point, “I can make almost anything with a point of reference.” You & your brother created a beautiful book; I enjoyed reading “King’s Tales.” In an Educator

Looking for time like...

ECC Day 350!! “Looking for time like...” Summertime, where’d ya go? Oh yeah, we lived it; we experienced/still experiencing it. We enjoyed & are making the most of it. We are taking in every chip left of summertime before another ROCKIN’ SCHOOL YEAR BEGINS! It’s been fun seeing some of my kids - out & about, at school, grad parties. Love y’all! Educator Chipotle Challenge (ECC), heyyyy! It’s not over until it’s over, but dang, the challenge is almost over; in a solid 15 days

Human Hug VS. Virtual Hug

ECC Day 349: “Human Hug VS. Virtual Hug” Tonight, I connected & recorded an Educator Shout Out Interview with a close friend & educator colleague, Gretchen. One theme of our conversation: While showing empathy & care over a text has a time & place, virtual communication doesn’t have the same affect as sitting across from that person, to make eye contact & share that compassion & truly feel connected. Many of us, greatly including our youth, are attached to a virtual reality t

Be Someone They Want to Join

ECC Day 348: “Be Someone They Want to Join” I will continue to stand, speak, & act up (positively) for what I believe in. Priorities on that list of what I care about & will fight/advocate for include: •Humanity’s well-being & safety •Human rights (EVERY HUMAN!) •Environment’s well-being •Mental health •Education, educators, students (resources, well-being, improvement, relationships, compensation, etc.) •Gun control The list goes on. Please consider what you care about, and

Behind The Images

ECC Day 347: “Behind The Images” My heart feels heavier than usual today. I discovered on social media that a person I know of from Portland died. When I lived there, was in her presence, & from what I’ve seen on social media since I moved, she lived & loved on a grand scale; she was outgoing, vivacious, adventurous, & cared a lot about people in her life. This is a reminder that what we see on social media does not fully reflect someone’s internal & external story & reality.
