In my Teaching as a Career class we are reading a book titled "I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had" by Tony Danza. It is a really inspirational story on how he went into a classroom and taught for a year for the sake of his tv show. This book is full of advice and real life situations that you can apply to yourself as a teacher or a future teacher. Below is some advice I'd like to share with you. (:

Advice to Use in My Future Classroom (I'd Like To Apologize To Every Teacher I Ever Had edition:
1. Homework: Always. Never more than 15 minutes a night. The good kids have too much to do.
2. Grades. Have a test or grade at least every2 weeks. This will give you 4 grades a marking period. Give a 5th grade for work habits- that includes HW, attendance, behavior. Example: Lateness 5 pts off, absent 5 off, no HW 5 off, bothering someone too much 5 off, impersonating an A-hole 5 off.

Advice to my Future Students:
Don't settle for anything. If you want something then work hard enough to get it. Turn your I can't's into I can's and your dreams into plans. You're capable.
