Student 1: What were you reading?
Me: It’s a book about teaching. Pose, Wobble, Flow. Mrs. Kroon gave it to me.
Student 1: You know it’s almost summer, right? You’ve got to chill.
Student 2: Leave her alone. At least she’s found her people.
Student 2 was referring to Mrs. Kroon as “my people.” But after finishing Pose, Wobble, Flow, I also consider authors Antero Garcia and Cindy O’Donnell-Allen my people—or at least my kind of people. Their book provided respite from the inadequate professional development I have been offered this year.
