Falling Behinder Personal by Joel Wagner - January 28, 2009June 30, 20103 Despite my best efforts, my computer has crashed. It’s old and the thing was running pretty slowly. I have reinstalled Windows and am in the slow process of getting things back up to speed. But — needless to say, I am not going to be able to get the weekly review of the Student Teaching thing done. Looks like that will be a sort of double thing for this weekend. Joel WagnerJoel 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.
