Teaching is not always a FUN job! It can be very stressful from time to time, especially in our high stakes, standards-based academic world. But then there are the days...
I love teaching the Roaring 20s. I love teaching my students about the jazz beat and the Charleston dance moves. I love watching my students, especially my big football players and my country guys, kicking up their feet and trying to complete the delicate moves of the time! What could be more fun?
I love teaching about the different places in our world. Traveling with my students through virtual tours or in archaeological digs, we all escape our place and time to take an adventurous trip to the unknown! What could be more fun?
I love teaching about the coolness and the controversy of our past. Encouraging deep thought and investigation, followed by engaged discussion, is the most fulfilling experience! What could be more fun?
Teaching is not always a FUN job! But when you use your classroom as a forum to introduce young minds to all of the different adventures of the past and future in our world, it is the most fun any job could be!
