Missing teens…

I’ve spent this weekend planning a session for our next staff meeting and also for the FECEI conference in Madrid in February.  When my boss first asked me to do a session on teens, I jumped at the chance as I really enjoy teaching that age group and getting to know the individuals in the class.

Unfortunately I don’t have any teens this year and as I’ve been planning this session, I’ve realised that I actually miss them.  Yes, they’re often a pain as they go through phases of despising education, authority figures and everyone in the class with them; but they’re also diverse, independent characters who are just looking to be accepted and find their place in the world…

    You miss teenagers? T, you are just affirming my view that you are unbelievably nice. I fear Teens…all of them, even when I was one of them. But for your sake I hope you get some next year – at least you make a good role model

    I’ve only just come across this post and wanted to say that after your session last week I got the same feeling! I love teaching 14-18 yr olds and would love to be teaching more of them.
