Clearly teaching is not for everyone
Interesting! The previous reviewer missed all that was said about balancing fun with serious class work, the critical importance of passion; the need for teachers to be creative and spontaneous; to create a safe environment for learning; to treat students like adults and to leverage all of the tools available on the Internet to spice up the learning process. Moreover, the reviewer completely dismissed the student's comments, suggesting that their views don't matter. The reviewer even overlooked the clearly worthy recommendation that teachers should get to know their smart boards better....No value here? Really? Frankly I hope the reviewer is not a teacher. The inability to find a kernel of value suggests a woefully closed mind. If he or she couldn't extract a scintilla of value from this show, I seriously doubt that he/she could see or cultivate the value that is in most kids
Synopsis: kids want their teachers to play them music and be comedians. Not to mention there isn't a single mention of how to integrae any of these useless ideas with the realities of a discipline and classroom management issues. Seriously? Play music?
