Recently, I had a chance to view a presentation by Roxanna Elden, an amazing high school writing teacher. In this video, she describes the myth of the super teacher. This video helped me begin to reflect on my four years as a teacher. I must admit, like Ms. Elden, I wanted to be a super teacher. I came in with the expectation that if I simply had great objective-driven lesson plans and a detailed classroom culture and investment plan, that everything would magically fall into place and my students would all leave my class as geniuses.
Oprah is on a roll to boost ratings for her OWN network. After landing an interview with Rihanna, the talk show host is reportedly trying her best to snag Beyonce for her next Next Chapter interview.
