Teachers' Club (for men in Education)

Virtual staff room for visionary teachers of every discipline. This is a good place for educators to discuss their collective role in society--particularly in regards to their duty as role models for young men. 

What does it mean to be a male role model for young boys in the classroom?

How can we serve them best?

Hey guys, currently applying for positions as a Lateral entry. My subject would be English. If you guys have any tips for the interview process, I would be incredibly grateful. Not having traditional experience in the classroom seems to be slowing me down a little in the application process. I have an interview in a week though!

Good evening from Quincy, Illinois! I am history/secondary education student at Quincy University and will be a teacher in 2 years if I have good luck. I also teach Outdoor Ethics and Bullying Prevention for the Boy Scouts. I just wanted to introduce myself.

I'm currently training to become a primary school teacher (elementary school in the USA) and loving it so far. Good to see this group exists. 
Cheers
