Super Powers

151947_superman_imposter_1This totally has nothing to do with teaching, but it’s an interesting question. If you had one super power, what would it be? How would you use it?

If you’re wondering where this question comes from, I was listening to the latest podcast of This American Life about Superpowers and it struck me as something interesting. I thought I’d see what my readers thought. Plus it’s a nice change of pace from the beginning of school and inservices and all of that stuff.

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. Man, I have wanted superpowers for so long… :). But it’s hard to decide what the best power would be! Invisibility, flight, super speed?
    I think I would choose shape shifting. Then I could be anybody! Muahahahaha!

  2. I would choose the power to fly. I love to travel…what better way. The castles of Ireland, Scotland, Germany…they would be so much easier to see and far cheaper too…if only I could fly.

  3. I think most people would use invisibility for devious means. I like Ava's "eat whatever you want and still look good in your supersuit" one! I want that one…

  4. I think I would like to use the Shadow Clone move from Naruto. I could do a bunch of different things at once. My superhero name: THE MULTITASKER. Beware inbox of jobs…here comes the THE MULTITASKER.
