Someone Else's Problem* just walked in the classroom door. Yes, I know, Arthur, they never covered this kind of stuff in the education classes you took as an undergrad...of course those courses were... More > an easy A and a joke then and now. After teaching for a few years the Head of the College of Education at the University of Toledo told me I should teach teachers how to teach since I was such a good teacher. I took the bait and soon realized I couldn't teach them how to be me and I wasn't really certain what it was I was doing that was so good. So I went back to high school and 40 some years later have figured out a few things that aren't covered in those classes and want to share them. The most important thing we can teach our kids is that learning is fun and they can do it. If we don't teach them that it doesn't matter what we teach.
