A Plus Sized Teacher

I’m a plus sized teacher. I’m not ashamed of it. It doesn’t stop me from loving my students and co-workers. Lately there’s been a lot of conversation about Body Shaming. This morning my Facebook feed has been filled with positive messages about how we should love ourselves no matter what our size. I completely agree. but, some days that is difficult to do. I think this is true for people of all shapes and sizes.

This video brought tears to my eyes this morning. I felt the need to share it here.

This gentleman (Khari Toure, @Kharitoure)  has produced many YouTube videos supporting those of us full figured ladies. I think his message is beautiful no matter what gender. I just wanted to say Thank you.

One thought on “A Plus Sized Teacher

  1. First of all, in my opinion, I think you’re beautiful. You’re a great listener, you share, you care, and you empathize. At least, you’ve done all those things for me. It’s difficult living in a society where certain boxes and expectations are placed on us. Let me assure you, though, kids don’t care what you look like; they care that you love them no matter what and that you don’t give up on them. That’s what matters.
