Love Is In The Air! CAST Tuesday Teaching Talk #5

Here at CAST, we LOVE  teaching. Do you? What about teaching do you love? Teachers often cite working with students as the number one reason why they love teaching.  What about working with students makes YOU continue to love your job?

  1. Those were the days. Ugh.

    Floyd’s point at the SotC on Friday was right on. Adjuncts are the silent, mistreated, valuable, and overly relied upon workhorses of our students’ education.

  2. Since you directly asked, I can do no less than honor your request, casthwc.
    Here goes…
    I have my passions. Teaching, you can say, is one of them. But learning tops teaching. That’s what I “love” about teaching. I “love” what my assigned students teach me.
    My hope is that they feel the same
    Gut feeling until we can objectively measure love. (Right, Kamran?)
