downloadthis week i went to see the new kevin hart movie #nightschool.  my week started off rough, so as a self care tool i decided to roll to the theatre mid-week.  i figured a goofy laugh would be good medicine.  and laugh i did, from the moment the movie started to the end.  you really can’t expect anything less from greats like kevin hart, tiffany haddish, yvonne orji and romany malco among others…

but what i did not expect was the homage that was paid to teachers.  tiffany’s character, carrie, is a straight shooter and uses unconventional tools to get her students to learn.  what i also loved was that she is a math teacher who uses creative ways to teach STEM.  it’s clear she cares deeply about her students’ success. she takes the time to get to know each and every one of their situations,  strengths/weaknesses and dreams. she masterfully cooks up lesson plans and calls them on their stuff to bring out the best in them.  

nightschool is billed as a movie about second chances and that it is. but for me it is a tribute to teachers everywhere.  a highlight reel of the sacrifices and love that goes into being a part of this amazing profession.  that’s the special treat of this hilarious movie and what makes it a must see for me.

  • Comments Off on Sages’ Rage: Which Top Model Show is on Top

imagestyra banks is back and the re-up is good.   the show which is on vh1 has the most diverse set of models in terms of race, size and age. one of the models has alopecia, which is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system attacks hair follicles. her strength and courage to face her hair loss is inspiring.  then there’s the 40plus year old mom who is rocking it like the gorgeous diva she is.  by showing us the many ways in which women are beautiful, ANTM feels better and fresher than ever.

 

imgresi’m also loving a new show on lifetime, making a model with yolanda hadid.  at first i felt this was just another thoughtless reality show.  yolanda (a former super model) helps aspiring teen girl models understand the industry. the twist is their moms are on the show with them.  i know what you are thinking.  sounds like drama! and drama there is…BUT what i like is that it showcases how the moms support of their daughters is key to the girls doing well.  if the moms talk to the girls in a positive way the girls do good. when they communicate with one another with love and support the shoots go better.   when the moms allow the girls to show their true selves, they radiate more in their photos.  it’s so telling how much the relationships between the moms and girls make all the difference in their success. it’s like that saying, ‘you are only as good, as the company you keep.’  

even though both shows may seem like clones of the same thing, they are different and really good.  definitely worth checking out.
