Why I Almost Quit Teaching
Teaching is a taxing job and it can be very stressful for beginners. There is a ton of responsibility dropped into your lap and when you consider that you may be guiding the future course of these students’ lives, it can be overwhelming.
As teachers, it’s important that we find what style, pedagogy, age groups, and demographics work for us. Brent discusses how he found his path in the face of adversity.
If you want a free resource for editing photographs either lightly or in great depth, take a look at Pixlr.com – Pixlr offers most of the features that photoshop users are used to, and even gives a fun and simple version or an “I know how to edit photos” version.
Brent also mentions Pixelmator as his editor of choice when on his Mac.
The classic series has been revitalized, and things have never been so much fun. If you remember playing the old games, or if you want a game that isn’t all blood and guts, look into King’s Quest.
