    Class 30 - What is your Bliss?

    I was born to be a teacher....as long as I can remember I have wanted to be one.    No Firefighter, Police or Superman for me.    Teaching that has always been my bliss.... the quandary was always what to teach?   When I headed to UMaine I thought I wanted to be a high school English teacher.   Yet even after my Masters Degree I found myself still in a middle school teaching position.  I soon realized it wasn't about WHAT I taught but HOW I taught it.    My joy came from figuring out how to teach the Social Studies class by reenacting the Battle of Bunker Hill with water balloons.  From Language Arts to Librarian I have done it all.  I am currently teaching Integrated Technology which is like the old Industrial Arts classes we took, but updated.  No Bird House or Coat hangers for this generation,  we make skateboards, robots, and 3D Print our own designs.   After 22 years of teaching think I have found the perfect job...... but give it time  I might get the itch to figure out the best way to teach another subject.   


    "Never tell someone HOW but WHAT to do and they will surprise you with their INGENUITY"
    (General George S Patton)

    What is your Bliss? When you grow up where do you see yourself? How do you plan on achieving this?
