I have been teaching for 6 years in the Elkhart Community Schools system. I graduated from Indiana University. I have coached wrestling and football.
I believe learning should be fun and enganging. I always thought my favorite teachers were the ones who brought the lesson to life. Whether it be through a reenactment, song, or poem, the students should be learning. This is why I started performing songs in my class. If I'm rapping, the kids are not napping. We often forget kids have some serious issues going on their home life. If we can bring a little pleasure to a child's life, than maybe we can bring a child to life. My user name is M and M because my wife (Mrs. Meyers) and I perform songs in each other's classes. We also have a guy named Miller to our edu-rap group named Miller. We were thinking about going by the name 3M but decided that would be connected with the tape company which is not that cool. Here is a rap Video of M&M (Meyers and Miller) doing our Russian Revolution Rap. Super goofy and it was our first time, but might give you an idea of what we do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5gqO3GIEN8
