Day 4: What I Love Most About Teaching
I've taught the same US History curriculum for 18 years and I can honestly say that the subject matter NEVER GETS OLD. I absolutely love providing opportunities for eighth graders to stretch their thinking and make their minds work in new and exciting ways, often instilling a passion for history in them like I have. I thoroughly enjoy planning lessons and finding new ways to deliver material. One example of this is by incorporating Visible Thinking routines in my curriculum. I learn so much through the young historians in my class--they keep the material fresh for me and I am grateful!
