I’ve so enjoyed many of the questions and comments I’ve received from many of my new rad followers. Which, while we’re at it, thanks tons for supporting my students’ obnoxiousness! I know they’d appreciate it.
Lately I’ve been asked a lot for advice in becoming a teacher (disclaimer: I am not an expert in advice giving, so ask at your own risk, haha). I enjoy answering the questions I receive, HOWEVER….this is what I’m annoyed with….
People who are considering teaching and ask for advice, and then when I go to their blog all I see is a page littered with profanity and other inappropriate posts which are unbecoming of a potential teacher.
For future reference, just know, if you have asked me a question or are planning on asking me one, and your Tumblr mirrors what I’ve described, I will not be answering your question. Instead I will say my advice for you is to keep things appropriate. You never know who is looking over your shoulder. Things can be misinterpreted and can come back to haunt you, no matter how innocent it seemed at the time. So clean up your public forums and continue to pursue your dream of teaching…if that’s what you really want to do.
