I taught for 30 years in Michigan public schools where most of my time was spent in middle school classrooms.
My style of teaching was to dialogue through history. We had great discussions and arguments where everyone's mind was engaged, almost anyway. There were always more hands raised than I could ever call on.
Some of my students listed me in Who's Who in American Education. There were several other awards but generally I do not seek awards. The satisfaction of a job well done is enough.
