A good teacher is truly excited and passionate about learning themselves and they should be teaching the subjects that they are most interested in. I had a teacher in 8th grade who would get SO excited about certain passages of literature that she would actually become flushed as if she was being romanced by Casanova himself. I loved her and she got us excited.

,..and yeah,..learning by numbers,

I love your passion for process.

Wasn't till College that I had a great History teacher.  My high school history teachers were always the football coach and they could care less about teaching anything other then football.

My first college history teacher "Civil War" was so passionate and into his subject I fell in love with the subject in a new way.


As I listen to you talk about the learning process, I can hear your passion.  That's how i feel about political theory.  Don't you just love loving something :)

Keep going - you are part of the solution.

I teach hairdressers *rolls eyes* They are most often great at the conceptual but the other two types of learning don't interest them at all. The problem is, every thing we do is geometry, chemistry and anatomy. I know...who'd a thunk it? I am fortunate to work for a highly evolved boss who let's me do what ever I feel I need to do to get the message across. Sometimes I have them wearing colored dots or making stuff out of play doh. Yes, I teach adults. LOL But the ultimate goal for me, is to have a group of students leave the classroom with something they can use. 


By the way, I was at one time the principal's secretary at an elementary school. Watching this vid made me laugh out loud. You sound just like all my teachers! They would come to me so frustrated sometimes...I brought them a lot of chocolate, made lots of copies for them, and ran interference with the parents. When none of that worked, I gave them scalp massages at lunch time. :c )

Omigosh, you sound like the perfect secretary!! You tended to the teachers.

I've always felt it should be the other way around.   You want to take care of the secretary because, unbekownst to most, SHE is the one person that all else depends on, ultimately.

LOL My principal used to get phone calls from the district offices. I would forward them to her and then hear her say, "ummm...I'm going to have to forward you to the one who actually runs the school"...then my phone would ring. I think I was born for servitude. LOL
