    I must say, I very much like the education I grew up with, though, at the time, I probably complained like my friends. What I liked is that I learned. The teachers knew their subjects, and we learned. Simple. Nothing to complicated. They taught. We had to be responsible if we didn’t want to repeat the grade or take summer school. They taught. We had to do homework and be responsible. Simple. Now, having said that, I would have like some more creativity and class projects. When I became a teacher, I understood what was important, but having worked at summer camps, I realized children learn in all kinds of ways and have all kinds of interests. My goal was to give as much as I could to find their interests. As long as we got through the main work (Here, I was very traditional), which I also supplemented, we had kids creating songs, kids creating their own board games, a business letter center, and more, even creating cities and island nations with stories. One student, who had always been in RSP, was being mainstreamed, my class being his first. Somewhere, around the third quarter, he finally figured that I didn’t give more work for finishing early, but the work had to be done right, that he could work on a song, a commercial, a game, or any of the number of other things we came up with (by the way, all those extras address standards, though the kids don’t know). Well, this kid, who always had D’s, got on the principal’s honor roll, just because I was different and got the kids interested in variety, but also because I didn’t keep giving more of the same type of work. State tests were good. If a child is ADHD, I want them in my class, but I can relate to them so long as there isn’t a chart of procedures to follow. I just understand the kid.
