New & Career Teachers Who Can’t Stop Caring:
Maybe it’s me, but I sometimes tire of the policy-talk about teaching: tests, unions, contracts, etc. I know the conversations are important—vital, really, when the passion is matched by logic, like on James Boutin’s awesome blog—but I need humor and humanity too. Magical Teaching is a site where those of us who need more time at lunch for laughing and story-telling can get ten more minutes.
Finish your apple!
It helps to like the Magical Teaching Facebook page. That’s where you can steal two seconds of laughter and a maybe a whole minute for an article that asks, “Why must teachers constantly prove their successes rather than work through their mistakes?” even as the real, surreal work continues.
