I’ll be honest with you, dear Pandas—I’m very nostalgic for my school days. I miss the good old days when the world seemed to be somehow more mysterious and you were always brimming with potential. It’s also a secret ambition of mine to become a teacher or professor someday in the far, far future. So when I spot an educator sharing their experience about their job, I’m all ears (or, well, eyes because I do a lot of reading).
Imgur user Kaiserkevin, a teacher and counselor who has a whopping 20 years of experience, shared a host of riveting school stories. It’s a rollercoaster of a ride and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Check out Kevin’s coolest and most memorable stories below and don’t forget to upvote the ones that you found particularly interesting. Oh, and if there are any educators among you, Pandas, we’d love to hear some stories from your perspective as well.
I had a chat with Kevin about the main challenges that teachers now face, how the Covid-19 pandemic has shifted everything, how music can be a powerful tool in an educator’s arsenal, and just how vital empathy is when working as a teacher. You’ll find his interview with Bored Panda below, so be sure to have a read.
