Hello. I am new to AoM and new to the group as well. I began teaching US History Survey courses at a community college after a back injury ended my law enforcement career. That Master's in History that I never planned on doing anything with.....well, in hindsight getting it was a good decision. I'm married to a high school history teacher and in fact, education is the family business. My mother is a retired elementary school teacher and my brother and sister-in-law are also teachers! Both my brother and my wife are also coaches, so I have the added benefit of getting into high school athletic events for free!
I'm not a teacher; just wanted to post this: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uhiCFdWeQfA&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3...
Anyone remember this? Anyone? Anyone?
Anyway, thanks for all you do. We would all be ignoramuses without you.
I'm currently a Conversational English teacher, which many of you will likely contend does not make me a real educator to which I will respond... Okay.
I am trying to get into teaching as a career in the international circuit and will start taking certification courses in the near future.
So, Hello all you teachers!
Any New York City teachers on here? I'm moving and hoping to be certified within the year to start my career. Any advice would be great :D
Hey, Cullen. I had my first male teacher in fourth grade. It was a great experience, especially since my folks had split and I didn't have many male role models at that time. Thanks for being in the trenches with the younger grades. I honestly can't imagine what I'd do if I was reassigned from HS to primary. The thought scares me!
There aren't many men working with younger children these days. I take pride in the fact that I have chosen to work at the elementary school level, teaching fourth grade. Most of the kids I teach tell me I'm the first male teacher they've ever had, and besides being a quality teacher, I feel it is my calling to provide them a strong male role model.
I am a Social Studies Education Major currently and can't wait to start teaching at the High School level! It will be nice to be able to talk with men who are also educators!
I think today's kids are very interested in current events, but they don't have the context or background that they should. When I was growing up I knew about current events, watched the news or read the paper, etc. Part of that, though was due to the Cold War and the emphasis placed on international competition. Today kids are sort of rootless when it comes to developing an international perspective.
Wat I try to do is make it interesting by connecting their experience to real life events when possible and by integrating math, English and science skills into the curriculum. We create maps and graphs using social data and employing math skills, e.g. This makes it a bit more challenging and the kids aren't just listening to the old guy (me) ramble on at the front of the room.
