I fear that far too many teachers of science don't have a real passion for their own subject. Without that, it is most unlikely that any passion for learning about science will appear in their students.

I have offered to help at my local public and high schools, and been turned down, because you can't even be a substitute teacher without some formal certificate. One is hard pressed to avoid the position that educators are really not that interested in education.

BOY I would love to help teach science. Or history. Mr. Passion, that's me.
