I don't want to say too much because my district is pretty weird about teachers posting things online, but I just have to say that I think I lied to my students today.
I started teaching my British Literature course to a group of seniors. I might have told them that I love British literature (Beowulf included). That's not entirely true. But if your teacher has a passion for it, its much easier to like it yourself. Right?
Maybe I can love it by the end of the semester.
