It's always good news when a teacher stands up and asks questions. SILENCE is the enemy, and it will kill you. The graveyard is a very quiet place.
I am a pain in the neck and am proud of it, but it does become exhausting when no one wants to answer the questions.
Every school year I remind myself that I can make a difference in the lives of 25 or so children, make learning fun, relevant, and meaningful.
Of course, I do it with my door closed. I just wish I could do more.
