Teaching in the community college doesn’t have to be boring and rote. It can be fun, educational, and interesting.
If you are willing to make it that way.
My Classroom Epiphany is about a teacher learning that teaching in the community college is not what she expected. And that is to the good.
When the door closes, I told my students in a conspiratorial aside, Iago-like, no one knows what we’re discussing; I can teach you graduate-level concepts and strategies, and no one will ever know or care. The students’ eyes blazed with the excitement of transgressive learning, and right then we were all caught up in a dramatic and revolutionary experiment that is still unfolding for me.
