I love the idea of good calls home and sending e-mails to former students, letting them know you've shared their work. This would work if you have a class website or some form of social media for classroom purposes. It looks like this was a really positive and inspirational chat! Thanks for sharing :)
I've been teaching two years going on my third. While I majored in Chemistry I was given the chance to teach AP Physics 1 my first year. I haven't looked back yet.I'm working on finding ways to engage students by using brain-based learning and developing activities that get students to think and do science instead of just learning about it.
