And Then Some News

Thursday’s essay is the first of several on education — to begin the new fall term. The first essay, “I most remember my tough teachers,” is personal, but I wrote it after giving lectures on writing to 4th and 5th graders and talking to them about tough teachers. The next three lectures (after this one) are all linked to “teaching the spark.”

Share your link. Have you written anything on teachers? Tough teachers?
Are you a tough teacher? Are you a student, past student, or teacher who has experienced tough teachers? Do you know someone who has? Can you share some insights about any of your own (or their) experiences with tough teaching? What would you like to tell people who have to deal with tough teachers? Any personal information you would like to share with them? Share your link with us. We’ll post it and move traffic in your direction. And, a big “thank you,” in advance, from AndThenSomeWorks.com, for sharing your link.

Thursday's And Then Some Essay preview:
I most remember my tough teachers
by Richard L. Weaver II


I haven’t had many tough teachers, but those I had made an indelible impression. Most of my schooling took place in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and I have to say that all my teachers were first rate; thus, when I single out a number for special attention, they went beyond “first-rate” to exceptional. The second thing I must say — as a caveat, I suppose — is that I was a very good student, and I loved learning. I was deeply engaged in all my courses, and I knew, early on, that if I truly wanted to be a doctor (established in a career-project required in a ninth-grade social-studies class), I would have to do well in school. But “doing well” was never a direct or motivating concern, since “doing well” came naturally from my love of learning.
