THIS ISN'T THE MOVIES: 25 YEARS IN THE CLASSROOM
Charles Ellenbogen, author of This Isn't the Movies: 25 Years in the Classroom will be at Mac's on Saturday, February 15th at 5 p.m
Charles Ellenbogen has been teaching for a long time. He moved into his first classroom when Bill Clinton moved into the White House and has been teaching long enough to see Hillary Clinton lose an election and to hear a student point to a picture of the Clintons and say, "That's Hillary Clinton and. . . and her husband."
That doesn't mean he's especially good at it; it just means that he's been doing it a long time. It doesn't mean he has 38 Recipes for Great Teaching; it does mean he has a lot of stories. You will laugh at some and get frustrated or even angry at others. But they all are real, and some of them don't end well because, after all, this isn't the movies.
Charles teaches at Campus International School in Cleveland.
