Sacred Heart School
Week of January 20th
Why do you teach?
I'm sure we each have many answers to these questions. I thought I'd start by sharing one of my answers.
Simply put, I teach because of my brother and my sister.
My brother had ADD and my sister has Asberger's. When we were in school, it was pretty obvious that I was "good" at school and they weren't. My brother lost every paper ever given to him. He couldn't pay attention long enough to complete an assignment. He was often caught doodling, and was even suspended for doodling on a desk. My sister never participated in class. She couldn't keep up with rest of the class. She hated homework and would often shut down in the afternoons. I hated seeing how stressed they were every day. I hated that school was something they resented, rather than enjoyed.
I wanted to teach because I wanted to create a classroom where kids weren't stressed. Learning shouldn't be stressful.
I also just really like math.
