It wasn’t me – a monster did it! How many times have you heard of silly excuses? This is the title of my latest book for children. I have decided that I really should try to expand my range as a teacher.
The result of writing It wasn’t me – a monster did it! is that my class of 7 and 8 year olds has suddenly become more switched on a willing to read and explore new teaching ideas. I simply give the students the pictures to my latest book idea and we sit on the floor and tell the story together.
Suddenly I am the cool author in their midst. I am an Amazon author and this is something they find weird. They can’t imagine people doing more than one job at once. When they join my class and have to learn I am Dr Fogarty – they look confused. How can a teacher be a doctor? Then they get into the swing of it all.
Why did I write “It wasn’t me – a monster did it!“? I did it to challenge myself to dream higher and be a better teacher.
In the same way that I can be an author and write It wasn’t me – a monster did it!, they can become anything they dream of. It is a liberating moment for children to realise that they are allowed to dream and people they know do things they don’t understand. Even writing a website to them is something amazing.
