He’s the Weird Teacher explores the wonder and challenge of teaching from the perspective of Doug Robertson, elementary school educator, self-proclaimed rock star, and student-proclaimed weird teacher. Learn what to do when a bird flies into your room, what whisper-shouting is, why tetherball is the best playground game ever, and how best to disrupt the straight line of a kindergarten class. Mixed with schoolhouse stories are thoughts on keeping the classroom positive, handling parents and administrators, bullying, and taking responsibility for student learning. He’s the Weird Teacher (and other things students whisper about me) takes on the education system from a sideways perspective, showing just how joyful teaching and learning can and should be.
