Our Newest Book – Be Popular Now

Be Popular Now Small imageWe would like to give a “shout out” about our newest book, Be Popular Now: How Any Man Can Become Confident, Attractive and Successful (And Have Fun Doing It), released today by Theta Hill Press. This is the “how to become popular” book for men!

This book is designed to help men become popular, and it presents many of the concepts that our readers have enjoyed since this blog began in September 2012. Male teachers would benefit from its advice, as it will help you become more excellent, detached, and fun – and help you read student and teacher body language more effectively.

Ladies: every one of you knows a nice guy who just can’t seem to get a date, take charge of life, or become confident. This book makes a great gift for these guys. Is he your brother? Your son? Maybe even your husband?? (Ladies, you will love him more if he learns these skills – trust me).

Happy Thanksgiving From Popular Teacher

A table all set for thanksgiving dinner

Today is Thanksgiving, a day when most Americans are taking a break from the rat race and taking time to relax with family and friends. I have been fortunate that I have been either a student or teacher for most of my life, and have never had to worry about working on Thanksgiving.

I have great memories of Thanksgiving, and it has an almost magical quality because of this. I am very thankful that I have a long weekend to focus on what matters in my life: family, friends, and God.

It is easy to focus on the negative things in life: problem students, increasing state regulations, pay freezes, etc. These are unfortunate things, but nonetheless, we all have many good things in life. Take this Thanksgiving and relax. Mindfully enjoy the food, friends, and family, and live today to its fullest. While you are at it, live every day the exact same way.


Something Inspiring For Your Friday

At a teacher’s meeting today our school president showed us this video. It is about a kid named Conner Long and his brother Cayden, who has cerebral palsy. Conner is a young athlete who includes his brother in all of his activities. He participates in triathlons  bringing his brother along on rafts, strollers, etc.

Conner gets it. There are some things much, much more important than winning. In fact, I would argue that in the “game of life,” this kid is in first place. Have a look. Get the tissues ready, because this really gets at what it means to be human. You can even follow their current activities via Team Long Brothers.

I had trouble embedding the video, so you will have to click on this link from ESPN. It is worth watching!
