The Guys of Primary Interviews: Bryce from The Teaching Texan!

Happy Tuesday! I hope that everyone had a wonderful, relaxing Memorial Day Weekend. Summer is approaching and things can be a little crazy at this time of the year. Stay strong! I am excited to bring you an exclusive interview!

Hello everyone, it's Justin here from Way to Bee in 2nd with Mr. Neal. Today I have the opportunity to interview Bryce from The Teaching Texan! Bryce is a kindergarten teacher in Texas. Grab your sunglasses, towel, and sunscreen and enjoy!

1. Why did you decide to become a teacher? I originally got a degree in Psychology, but towards the end of that degree program decided I didn’t want to pursue it further once I graduated.  I had been involved in all-star cheerleading for several years so decided to coach for a while to give myself time to figure everything out.  It was then, through working with kids, that I decided I wanted to become a teacher.

2. What do you do in your spare time to relax? Hobbies? Volunteer work? 
What spare time?!  Haha, I love working out.  Believe it or not my partner and I get up 4:30 every morning to work before we start the work day.  I also like traveling, spending time at the lake, and playing with my 2 dogs.  

3. Would you recommend teaching as a career to your students? 
I recommend any career that will make them happy!

4. What does you like most about teaching? Least? What I like most about teaching is seeing that “lightbulb” moment.  It’s so special to see when a kiddo finally gets it!  What I like least about teaching is having to move onto another topic when kids are still motivated to learn about the current one.

5. If you weren’t a teacher, what job would you like to have? Why? 
If I weren’t teaching I think that I would own my own business.  It’s a dream that I’ve had for a while.  Who knows, maybe one day it will happen!

6. What is the best part about being a male in a field of predominantly females? 
Standing out!  Whether it’s applying for a new teaching job or being a different viewpoint on something, being a male teacher offers a different perspective that is important for kids.

7. What is your classroom or teaching philosophy? 
My classroom teaching philosophy is to provide kids with the opportunity to realize that learning is fun through hands-on and experiential learning.  At the end of the day, if a kid doesn’t like school in Kindergarten WHEN will they like it?

Thanks Bryce for taking the time to answer these questions! Be sure to follow Bryce and check out his amazing blog and teacher resources in his TPT store!
