Do you ever feel like it’s impossible to have fun in the classroom anymore?
There is often so many “other” things to care about, that fun can be the last thing on our minds.
In this episode of Real Teacher Talk, I sat down with Matt Halpern to talk about why it’s a challenge to have fun in the classroom, why fun in the classroom is important, and how to bring fun back!
Matt is a joyful educator who draws on almost two decades of experience as a classroom teacher and literacy coach. He is passionate about making classrooms child-centered and putting the effort and work of students at the forefront. His love for teaching social-emotional skills and literacy often combines as he is always looking for new ways to help others become the best versions of themselves. A fierce advocate for social justice and equity in classrooms, Matt leverages the power of literacy and community to empower children. Matt is the author of the forthcoming A Teacher's Guide to Interactive Writing.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- Why teachers are struggling to have fun in the classroom
