Enchanting Teachers among Us
Childhood Education, v80 n3 p128 Spr 2004
The amazing power to enchant students often is a defining hallmark of great teachers. Enchanting teachers, those who make learning exciting and attractive, are all around, and each is effective and inspiring in his or her own unique way. Wonderful teachers generally weave their magic behind closed doors, however, where only their students can experience their charm. The author wanted to open those doors a crack and peer inside, even for a day, to try and capture a little of the wonderment they dispense. The author spent the day with two such teachers: Gilbert Navarro and Debra Nisius. They teach different levels and different student populations, yet both contribute something wonderful to the lives of their students. This article describes their enchanting teaching methods.
