Teachers' Club (for men in Education)

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?

In my experience with schools, there is a strong tendency to downplay or even avoid the stickier issues of life: character, morality etc. It's understandable, as the US does not have a homogenous…Continue

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

I teach cultural studies and film classes. I'm an adjunct at a state university and on the hunt for a full-time teaching position.

Comment by C. Grant on January 27, 2013 at 8:25pm
Evening gents, I currently work in university research but I've fulfilled the qualifications for a provisional teaching license. I am trying to teach secondary science (earth, physical, biology) but preferably something even more specific to my field of soil/plant and environmental science. I have a master's in this field, but my only real teaching experience was a section of our intro class, which went very well. Look forward to discussing some things with you all.

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More
