This Week’s Theme- I Geek…

We all geek something. Whether it is a pop cultural phenomenon, a hobby, an animal, a toy, or a sports team, the things that capture our imagination and fuel our passions make their way into every part of our lives- even our classrooms. When we share our interests with our students, we give them points of connection with us as people, and master teachers know that building relationships with our learners is the best foundation we can have for effective teaching.

This week, we would love to know the things you geek, and how they work their way into your schools, classrooms, and lessons. Send us pictures that show us where your interests and your profession converge to make your classroom unique. Show us the sports banners hanging in the back of your room, the movie posters and action figures, the hidden details that pay tribute to your favorite things. What you geek is part of your #EVSCstory, so share it proudly.

NOTE: You absolutely DO NOT have to match the theme to share a picture with us. Feel free to share any photo that helps us tell the #EVSCstory at ANY time.

I Geek...

These photos were created using the web tool Photofunia. Then we created the composite image using Canva. If you would like to know more about these tools or about photo editing, contact the ICATS.

How to Share Your Photos

There are four ways that you can share the photos that you take with us:

  1. You can share via Instagram- Simply post your Instagram photos using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Feel free to add other hashtags as well to indicate the theme (e.g. #IGeek), or add more information to the caption to help tell the story.
  2. You can share via Twitter- Post your photos to Twitter using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Again, we invite you to add other hashtags, including some of our EVSC hashtags like #evscchat. You can also include our Twitter handle (@evscicats) to ensure we see your pictures as soon as you post.
  3. You can share via Facebook- Visit our ICATS Facebook page, click the Message button in the upper-right corner, and in the text of the message give us your name, school, and the theme for the week. Be sure to attach the photo by clicking the Add Files button. While you are there, we’d love it if you liked our page :) OR, simply share your image on your own Facebook feed, and include the #EVSCstory hashtag.
  4. You can share via email- If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through email. Just attach your photos to an email and send them to [email protected].

Final Thoughts

We love learning about our colleagues through the #EVSCstory Photo Challenge. It reminds us about how much we have in common, and encourages us that there are so many passionate educators in the EVSC. Please continue to share your passions with us, and encourage you colleagues to do the same. We can’t wait to see what you have to share this week!
