Matthew Swope has been teaching physics for ten years. He is a STEM teacher, the kind that every district wants. Before becoming a teacher, he was a Marine, then a police officer. He took a big pay cut to become a teacher. He loves teaching.
Read his words of wisdom:
I am a teacher. Year 10….
the first 6 weeks of school has been overwhelming. tons of work and late nights. with how long i work some nights i am probably making minimum wage.
report cards went out today. i expect some parent requested conferences. i have 24 kids, and currently working my way through fall conferences.
i have a good bunch of kids, though.
this year i have been inspired by things on pinterest and this site called edutopia.
hope to post more in this upcoming 6 weeks.
