I'm starting my first full week of school this week and decided that I will try to keep myself accountable by posting my weekly plans on my blog! People are always asking about what I do in my classroom, and it is well past time to really dive into the blogosphere. So, here goes! I am absolutely fascinated by the solar system and space. As a little boy, I always wanted to be an astronaut and always read books about space. Today as a teacher, it is one of my favorite units in fourth-grade science.
As I am ending my seventh professional summer in stride, I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on some good, great, and OFF-DA-CHAIN moments from my teaching past. I also want to reflect on some bad, stupid, and cray cray.
I always wanted to become the teacher I never had. The typical “You make a difference because you are a GUY” assertions are shallow, lame, and not representative of me. I don’t care if you are a flippin’ cardboard box, I’ve learned an eternal truth about education --> Be the most interesting thing in the room. Care about others. Be the change you wish to see.
