Today now more than ever, it’s hard to get their attention. But if you are humming with enthusiasm for your material, your students will pick up on that.
I remember my geometry teacher in high school when he said, “Geometry is god.”
I don’t agree. But the point is he was passionate about teaching the subject. Luckily, you don’t have to idolize your topics. But you can’t teach without off-the-charts excitement.
It’s hard to compete with Instagram. They’ve got their face in Facebook. It’s hard to get their face in the book you are teaching.
Your only hope is your passion.
