I'm so excited that today is the first day of our Teach Like a Pirate book study! This book has been the kind that I just can't put down!
Each letter in PIRATE stands for something and P, of course, is passion. Dave Burgess talks about professional passion, personal passion, and content passion. The whole chapter made me reflect on my passions and how I applied them during this past school year. In this book Dave Burgess says that we need to keep our passions in mind when we aren't teaching our favorite subject so that we still come across as passionate. That made so much sense to me! (I tried really hard to be excited about rocks and soil this year. Like Academy Award winning kind of hard.)
Mary from Guided Math is hosting this chapter so head on over to her blog to see all of her thoughts.
