1 thought on “Dang”

  1. “All my years of teaching, and I am only finding this out at the end. All these years, I thought it was all so serious. Dang.”

    Last week I went into one of Emilie’s classes and taught in order to be her model for the Class competitions. Tuesday we did PQA and Friday we did a story. She did the same thing in the next class. This year I’ve been giving private lessons and there are six in my largest group, so it’s not at all the same thing. And as I stood in front of those kids who had their names written on cards because I didn’t know them, I realized that I really missed being in a classroom, standing in front of twenty some kids.

    My private students are very motivated and pleasant, but there’s not the same tension as there is in a “real” classroom. It’s a bit like walking a tightrope, trying to keep them engaged and yet rigorous, reeling in the loose minds that start to stray without them being too aware that you’re reeling them in, knowing there’s no net below you. So, yes. Dang.
