Uncle Rick! As someone who is just starting out as a middle school teacher, any advice on how to get kids and keep them interested in books?
Best of luck! We need good middle school teachers. Each teacher has to find his/her own style. For me, it was a lot of hands-on activities, humor and fun in the classroom. (As much as the school would allow me.) Just remember, it takes a few years to get into your stride. The second year is WAY easier than the first, so hang in there.
