I have written many many lessons over the years. I am approaching my 4000th day of school with students. This fact amazes me. It doesn’t seem like that long ago I was a naive beginning teacher. I thought my students would be unlike any other class. My students would see the value of all of my lessons. I would be intriguing and dynamic every day. I would change the world one student at a time.
I quickly came to realize that my students had as much to teach me as I had to teach them. I only had to be open and willing to listen.
As I go forward, I hope to share some of the things I have learned over the years.
