The Challenge of being an Educator

I have lots of opinions about being an educator. Here are many of my opinions and some advice.

I am in the process of switching templates so some of these links still go to the old website pages. They will be updated as soon as possible.


Education: being a teacher

This part of the website is designed to provide information that may be useful to student or newish teachers. The original pages were written by a former science teacher, thus most of the links eminating from this page talk about teaching science. This website is also open for other teachers to share advice and more! If you want to share small comments, please put them on the message board. If you want to share lots of info, then contact the webmaster to request space.
