Well this is semi-off topic but its about one of my new EC's that i'll be doing. Always wanted to be a teacher so fullfilling that part of my life by teaching science, english, and math courses for underserved children (6th-8th Graders). I've had experience teaching undergraduates, and coached high school sports, but this will be the first time I'll be exposed to the middle school kids. So i'm wondering if anyone has any advice, or what not. I'm looking forward to this, and i'm not scared of these kids or anything, i'm just more concerned about them learning something. One of the very few times I can see myself directly giving back to the community so i want to do it right. So far i'm potentially going to be department head for the program, so i may have a lot of flexibility in what i do too. Hopefully i'll be dept. head for some science course, rather than english. I'm used to writing scientific papers, so might not be applicable to these guys in regards to high school and part of their undergraduate careers. So yea thanks again!
