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.
