Rekindle Your Passion for the Profession
November 09, 2012
Just a small idea when you feel overwhelmed by dumping information instead of teaching to your passion: find some passion every day. When you think of the content you are teaching on any given day, find a piece of that content — an interesting fact, an awesome illustration, a bit of background information, a recorded piece of music — that you just love. Take a minute or 3 near the start of class to share that bit with students. Let them see your interest and your love for the content. They can’t get excited, if you can’t. If you can, each day somebody in that class will be thinking, “Hey, that IS kind of cool!”
Good Luck! It really does take time to find or create your balance.
