What If… Personal by Joel Wagner - January 20, 2008July 2, 20102 What if you could change one thing about your life that would make you a better person (however you define that)? What if you could adjust one thing that would allow you to experience greater success (however you define it)? What if you could start that change today? What if you encourage others to change the world? What if you make one decision today that will enable you to leave a lasting legacy for years to come? What would that change be? 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.
