I am a ten-year English Language Arts teacher, and I am persevering daily to become "That Teacher." :)
I try to teach creatively to keep my students' focus and get them excited about learning, because it seems that by the time they get to middle school, and especially to high school, they have lost that love for learning that they had when they were little.
