I went in to work today and found out I will not be teaching summer school. My first reaction was disappointment... I have been programmed to teach. What will I do with myself? How will I focus long enough to get anything done? I need the structure of school.
I've actually been programmed to be like my students, scatter brained. I have been teaching more and more at-risk and special needs students and doing well with them. Partly, because I teach them via organized chaos. My students even joke around that I am more ADHD than any of them could ever be. I walk on desks, shout when there isn't any need... we learn and it IS FUN. I saw this video recently and it explains it all. All of it. My new demeanor. My students. The next generation. Enjoy!
