    Child abuse is not something we like to discuss, especially this time of year. However, sexual child abuse is going on somewhere right now. Often we as teachers hear this information at the start of the year when we have a ton of responsibilities on our plate and we haven't even met our students. Now as we approach the halfway mark of the year and know our students, The Teachers Lounge goes back to this topic and invites special guests from Darkness to Light (http://www.d2l.org). They are an organization dedicated to helping those children who suffer from sexual abuse. We discuss the myths, our roles as teachers, and useful strategies in dealing with this very dark topic.

    The Firm and Fair Teacher No smiling till Christmas? Are you acting like a drill instructor the first few weeks of school? Should we post consequences in our classroom? What about that student who lies and says he is innocent? There are many misunderstandings when it comes to being a firm and fair teacher. Fortunately, we have an experienced educator, mentor, and author to help us reflect on how firm and fair we are in the classroom. Fellow teacher Robert Ward(@RewardingEdu) brings over two decades of classroom experiences to our show and his book: The Firm, Fair, Fascinating Facilitator: Inspire your Students, Engage your Class, Transform your Teaching is currently available wherever books are sold.  "The purpose of this book is to illuminate and equip both current and prospective educators with the necessary knowledge and skills to at long last become that spectacular and satisfied teacher that they had always envisioned themselves to be and that their students so desperately need them to be."

However, he is surprised after all this time many people are still checking out the old episodes!  Bryan recently celebrates 20 years of classroom teaching by looking back at episodes that were recorded earlier in his career.
