Teaching meme

Well, Christine tagged me, but my question is, what is a meme and how do you pronounce it? I had to go to urbandictionary and websters.com. Maybe I shouldn’t play this game….

Ok, here goes. I will play.


1. I am a good teacher because…
I myself model learning all the time.

2. If I weren’t a teacher I would be a…
good question! I have little talent in many areas. I suppose I would be working in a lab somewhere in Academia USA.

3. My teaching style is…
kinesthetic. Duh, I am a dancer. What did you expect?

4. My classroom is…
the world. There is no room at our house for a classroom.

5. My lesson plans are…
usually successful. That would be the natural teacher emerging from me, accompanied by my own love of learning and in-tuned-ness to my kids.

6. One of my teaching goals…
is to be very patient. This goal is not always reached.

7. The toughest part of teaching is…
staying disciplined enough to meet my own expectations.

8. The thing I love about teaching is…
I will use Christine’s answer, word for word: “I get to learn right along with them. I get to delve into subjects I enjoy and drag the kids along with me. I get to let them drag me into things they like too.”

9. A common misconception about teaching is…
that is it hard. Think more along the lines of facilitation, and maybe you will agree.

10. The most important thing I’ve learned since I started teaching is…
each child has his/her own learning style, which may not match your natural teaching style.

Does this mean that I am ready for the school year to start? Absolutely not.

Now, who to tag? Well, I am limited to teachers with a blog. How about Heather, Jean, and Chris?
