Today I met one of my heroes, Erin Gruwell, the creator of Freedom Writers and @freedomwritersfoundation She is one of my inspirations for being a teacher. She told us her story, and the story of her students, and spoke about the importance of learning our students’ stories, and bringing JOY and HOPE into our classrooms EVERY DAY, and keeping those elements ALIVE. I’m with her! I’m still reeling from meeting her and speaking with her. #amazing #eringruwell #freedomwriters #freedomwritersfoundation #joy #hope #teacher #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #inspiration #champion

I absolutely loved this book and movie. And here are those freedom writers 20 years later! #freedomwriters #diaries #longbeachcalifornia ##freedomwritersmovie #hillaryswank #writers #writerslife #literary_bohemian #eringruwell

Freedom Writers
Another night of CNN Trump news avoidance, though I do read the news. This flick was on The Times August Netflix recommended shows list. It’s based on a true story about a new teacher, Erin Gruwell whose first high school class in Long Beach, Ca is filled with gang kids with tribal hate for each other.
Her activist father is her inspiration to not write them off as unreachable but find ways to reach them. After much drama they end up writing a book.
So while I’m not reading much at least I watched a movie with the words reading and writing said often. I even got weepy. It brought back memories of my own student teacher days at a NYC school with a tough reputation. The male vice principal got the bright idea to lock me in the classroom “for safe keeping” during my lunch break. That helped me to identify with how the kids felt and helped me to find ways to bond with them despite being young and clueless. Sometimes that’s not so bad. That experience led to my later becoming a community organizer and eventually a psychoanalyst.
This is a very idealistic feel good movie. That’s okay we need that now. Swank is terrific.

As a teacher, it’s easy to lose sight of what makes the profession so great. With increased duties for decreased pay, many are forced to leave behind the idealized dream of truly making a difference. Today I got to meet Erin Gruwell of Freedom Writers fame, who proved that education is the greatest equalizer; that ability and success do not discriminate based on race, background, nor socioeconomic status. She is the success story that drives people like me to do better, to be better, to put my best foot forward, no matter the boundaries, and prove that any action can make a ripple effect grand enough to promote positive change in the lives of our impressionable youth. My second year as a teacher is quickly approaching, and in the words of a hero, here’s to hope. #progressonpurpose #eringruwell #akidisakidisakid #freedomwriters

Meeting Erin Gruwell was such an amazing opportunity and I totally geeked out 😂! She is truly an amazing human being and her passion inspires me! Freedom Writers came out when I was just beginning my college career, where I would find that being a teacher was what I was made to do. I know some people would see that movie and would want to run for the hills! Not me! I knew I wanted to show children their potential and teach them that they can be whatever they wanted to be, despite any barriers along the way...because some carry a whole awful lot. I knew I wanted to be a teacher that was going to show them love and kindness and give them a reason to come to school everyday. I absolutely love my job. I get to love on kids all day and show them how to be successful in their lives! What a great, motivational way to begin this school year! Can’t wait to meet my new kiddos! 💕 @freedomwritersfoundation #eringruwell #freedomwriters #teachersofinstagram #inspiration #happynewyear #fourthgrade #lovemyjob #teacherlife

The most amazing morning today as Erin Gruwell told her story which first profoundly impacted us when we saw the movie Freedom Writers ten years ago. As a Newport Beach school teacher Erin took a teaching position in a racially divided school with a culture of gang violence in Long Beach and transformed the community by taking her students on a journey of healing and reconciliation as they wrote their personal freedom diaries and learned that the pen is mightier than the sword. The truth is, we can all not only make a difference, we can be the difference. What a thoroughly inspiring morning. Thank you Erin Gruwell! #freedomwriters #freedomwritersdiary #blessedwithaburden #seethyneighbor #embracethyneighbor #lovethyneighbor #eringruwell

One of the highlights of the CACEO conference. Guest speaker and Inspirational teacher Erin Gruwell. Her book inspired the movie Freedom Writers starring award winning actress Hillary Swank. So awesome... I was in tears. #eringruwell

What an honor to meet the inspiring Erin Gruwell of “FreedomWriters” in person. Gutsy, courageous and fearless she is, to say the least 🔥🔥🔥
Do you know what #actress played her in the movie? Did you watch the movie based on her life? 🎬 Awesome, isn’t it?

📽️ SOBRE ESCRITORES DA LIBERDADE - PARTE 1

Era já a reta final do programa da CAPES que levou quase mil professores de inglês da rede pública pra estudar inglês e metodologia de ensino em diferentes universidades EUA afora em 2014. Eu e mais dois colegas do IFRN (Nilo e Henrique) ficamos na turma da Universidade da Califórnia - Irvine.

Eu e Henrique pilhadíssimos: a gente tava na mesma universidade que Erin Gruwell tinha estudado, na mesma cidade onde ela tinha morado e ninguém, NINGUÉM do programa sequer conhecia o projeto dos Escritores da Liberdade. Ou o livro. Gente, nem o filme! Um filme com Hillary Swank e o dr. McSonho, como assim ninguém sabia de que se tratava?! "Mas será que tinha como trazer o pessoal da fundação aqui? Ou levar a gente até lá?" Todo dia era um pedido desses à responsável pelo nosso curso. Eu perdi as esperanças logo, mas Henrique seguia obstinado.

Até que um dia, quando a gente chegou na sala de aula, havia duas convidadas especiais: Tiffony Jacobs (na foto) e Robyn Marotta, duas ex-alunas de Erin Gruwell, duas co-autoras do diário, estavam ali pra conversar com a gente. A insistência de Henrique sensibilizou a coordenadora, que foi atrás de saber que raio de filme era esse que a gente falava tanto e ficou encantada com o que descobriu.

Foi a melhor tarde do curso! ❤️ Foi incrível ouvir as histórias de duas estudantes que rasgaram o destino que estava escrito pra elas e decidiram reescrevê-lo - a partir do acolhimento de uma professora inexperiente e sem noção, mas cheia de compromisso e amor. Aquele momento foi o toque de inspiração que tava faltando pra lembrar a gente da diferença que um professor atencioso é capaz de fazer. Muita gente chorou, todo mundo se emocionou - e eu aprendi que às vezes é preciso insistir mais um pouquinho pra ver uma coisa boa acontecer.

Projetinho de férias... Vamos ler sobre experiências e, quem sabe, experimentar? #thefreedomwritersdiary #eringruwell

Nothing like the smell of the lavender plant in the breeze, a cold glass of la croix, and a good book. Finally reading the end. Did everyone else read this 10 years ago?! 😍😍 #theliteracyladies #summerreading #thefreedomwriters #thefreedomwritersdiary #teacherinspiration

A história de Anne Frank: no filme "Escritores da Liberdade", a professora faz com os alunos a leitura do "Diário de Anne Frank" como estratégia pedagógica.
Estou trabalhando o filme com alunos de 8° e 9° anos e a Catarina nos trouxe essa história que - eu não sabia - também está em quadrinhos.
