I am fed up with this. I have been told this 9 times last week. No idea how to combat it, I'm not a clown. My year 10's come in and say is it a single lesson, they know all science ones are doubles, oh your so boring cant wait until we go to .... (insert name here, teach in rotation). Sitting here knowing that I'm going to just get told how boring I am and how they hate being in my lessons it really beginning to grate now. I actually had a student ask to change classes because I wasn't fun enough for him to learn anything. I might put on some facepaint and a red nose and start dancing. I shouldn't moan as I'm in a lovely school with great colleagues and the students aren't that badly behaved. This just really annoys me, what also bugs me is that I think I acutally am becoming boring, I know there are better more creative and interesting teaching in my dept and know I cant keep up with them, I'm not as fun as them and not as engaging as they are. It does make me question my suitability as a teacher, I feel I'm being lazy that I'm not upto date on marking, that my assessments aren't as good as others that I seem to struggle much more. So much so that for the first time in a long time I found myself looking at jobs outside of teaching. *rant over* Anyone else get continually told they are boring?
