About Me
I am a teacher/administrator in Missouri, and I've been in the education profession for 19 years.

My YouTube Video about "Why Do We Have To Go To School?"

This video explains why we have to explain to students the reasons behind certain rules at school, and why they should obey the rule. The fact is this: "Because I told you so" doesn't work anymore! We are training students to be inquisitive, curious, critical thinkers when teaching our subject matter, but get upset when students question the rules instead of quietly complying? Don't get upset! Just use the techniques in my free ebook and you'll be fine.

I've checked out your "newteacherhelp"! I am not a new teacher but I wish your site had been available to me when I was a new teacher. I'm sure it will come in handy to me in my 7th year! People like you are angels!!!!
