Hi and welcome to teachernirvana.com. My name is Chris Meche, and I’m the owner of this website. More than that, I’m here to help you grow as a teacher and better help your students.
Over ten years ago, I was in the midst of a career change. My former profession was no longer an option, and I needed to find a new profession quickly. I had a degree that I felt was useless and working at a convenience store. One day while training a new employee, I was told that I should be a teacher. I had never thought about it before, but I have always loved reading and writing. I’m also good at training people. I did that in my former profession. So, I thought, why not?
A year and half later, I was a certified classroom teacher teaching English in the state of Texas. That was 10 years ago. During that time, I have gone on to earn other certifications, such as Theater Arts and Physical Education. I have also earned an M.A. in English and an M. Ed. in Education Administration. I even earned my Principal certification a few years ago, even though I chose to go back to the classroom. While I enjoyed training teachers, I missed the interaction with the students.
WHY I WANT TO HELP OTHER TEACHERS
Over the last 10 years, I have learned so much about the art and science of teaching. I once heard a speaker say that teachers should be the number one learner in their classroom. He went on to say that teaching is a profession that requires constant training.
As trends come and go and as students continue to evolve, it is more important now than ever that teachers continue to grow so they can better help their students. When I was getting started, I searched all over the internet for the resources I needed to better myself as a teacher. I remember thinking, there has to be a way to gather all of this great information in one place. It would be a huge help to teachers, so I created this website.
THE GOAL OF THIS SITE
When I sat down to create this site I created a few goals for this site. Here they are:
- To help teachers grow in their craft
- To create a space that brings together the newest research and resources for teachers
- To provide a better education for more students by helping their teachers
To these ends, I will post regularly to this website. It’s my intention to help teachers, so they can better help their students.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
Good luck with your teaching and never stop learning,
