Why I Teach
I found early on in my career that my interactions with students are as engaging as any history book I have ever read. I am driven to teach by the ceaselessly interesting, exciting interactions I get to have with students. The passion and sense of joyous wonder our students exhibit when coming to new and greater understandings of our collective past is contagious and affirming. Moreover, though I have been studying this content for the better part of three decades and teaching it to hundreds of students for the better part of one, the seventh and eighth graders at TPS are constant sources of novel ideas and expression that change the way I think about our history. This invigorating fact, as much as anything else, drives me to teach. – Josh Nealon, History Teacher
