 Life as a teacher  

Mr. Brborich says that the hardest part about teaching is “When you’re teaching your heart out and kids don’t care to learn and look for multiple excuses.” He said, “It makes you question if your job is really worth it because many teachers don’t teach for the money, they teach make an impact on students’ lives.” 

    He also says that another good part about teaching is, “the relationships you make with students, you make with students and how appreciative they are, there may not be a lot of students like that but it’s very pleasing to know and feel that it’s having a good impact on their futures.” The best life skills Mr. B can teach are about self-discipline and hard work.

Wrestling and Judo 

  This school year, Mr. B became Miami High’s wrestling coach again. He wanted to give the kids an opportunity to have a wrestling team this year.
