My final showcase is done! We have playwrights ladies and gents! These 4th graders wrote and starred in their own monologues. Getting them to memorize was an act of God but they did and I’m proud! #educatorlife

Thank you to all my supporters! For those who are new to this page, my name is Berry! I’m an educator that focuses on cultural responsive pedagogy and the infusion of hip hop in education today! I’ve been an educator since 2004 and full time taught as an English teacher from 2005-2014! Since then, I’ve been traveling all over the five boroughs pairing arts education plus social justice! I also make sure my one woman shows reflect the work I do and have witnessed in the classrooms and communities I work in. Visibility and a platform for these students to cultivate the voices they already have! Anyway, WELCOME! And let me know what you’d like to see more of here! 😘✌🏾😘✌🏾😘

Today in my last session at Far Rock Teens Center, in the poetry as hip hop workshop, we used lines from famous Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, Langston Hughes, and Countee Cullen poems and rapped to a poetic inspired song and instrumental by @rapsody called Sassy! She quotes three lines from #stillirise by the great Maya in her chorus! This written I wrote was inspired by Nikki Giovanni’s famous poem, #egotrippin !!! See if you can hear the lines—if you know them! #educator #educatorlife #rapper #lyricist #tuesdaymotivation #rapsody #rap #hiphop #hiphoped #teaching #poetry #writing #poetsofinstagram #singer #songwriter #farrock #queens #queenslibrary
