This website is for teachers. Not just any teacher . . . Thinking teachers; . . . women and men who have seen combat in the trenches of our education systems and know deep in their hearts that "we can do better".
The best teachers in the world are the greatest learners. This is the place for us to learn from each other.
Teaching Expertise - Success leaves clues.My name is Gerald Waxman. My family and friends call me "Jerry." My students call me all sorts of things, but they also know me as "Jerry." I've been teaching in various capacities on and off for about 35 years, maybe more. . . Probably more (hmm..) . . . Anyway, it's not the length of experience that counts. And it's not the quantity of hours we put in. It's the quality of our teaching that counts.
>A moment to brag< My students always get top quality learning experiences when I am their teacher. Students and teachers alike notice that I get better performance from my students than other teachers. That's because I have an arsenal of secret teaching weapons.ha ha
It's true, you know. You have teaching weapons, too. Stick with me and I'll show them to you.
>A moment of gratitude and humility<I've really had a very fair share of "peak teaching moments," and I'm very grateful for that. I know that you've had some, too. That's why we're here. We're going to talk about our greatest classroom adventures. We're going to inspire each other to have more and better "peak teaching moments."
Why? - - - Because our great teaching moments are good for our students and good for the world we live in. [and they're a natural high for us, but let's keep that to ourselves.]
Which brings me to the goal of this website . . In a nutshell -- the world is crying out for better teachers and better teaching. And you will be a more valuable teacher by sharing things with like-minded teachers.
