About Joel Wagner 522 Articles
Joel Wagner (@sywtt) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.

  1. How can we expect to help them accept who they are and who everyone else is, if we don’t accept who we are? I am not stupid, but I am a MAN (middle aged nerd). When someone says, “…just a teacher…”, I don’t care if it’s a student, parent or administrator, we should be offended. Make teaching a noble profession…don’t dance unless it’s to YOUR music.

  2. This video was very neat! I only counted 12 passes as well. I gasped when I saw the bear break dancing! I could not believe I miss something that big. I will make sure I keep this in mind when I teach.

  3. jas: You just reminded me of this video again. I went and found it on YouTube and showed some of my basketball player students. They thought it was great!
