Journal 6 Hobart Shakespeareans.

The documentary film The Hobart Shakespearean was a great documentary. I loved how Rafe was involved with his students and cared on what was happening at home, and how he wanted them to be Americans, if they go through all that work voluntarily ans still keep going they are doing more than what we Americans do today, we have gotten so lazy, we Americans just think we can do everything and not try. I feel that if we Americans had to work to become one we would be so much better, we should take these children as examples they have self-discipline to learn and become all they can be. I am not perfect, I am not saying that I deserve the American title, yes I was born and raised here but sometimes I am not interested in learning as those children were, I am attending college to make better of myself and the past couple days something slapped me in the face, I need to do better, and watching those children (10 years old) if they can do that why can't I as an adult? I am going to do way better in school so I can achieve my status as surgeon and help others medically so they can live their life more fully.

The teaching style of Rafe is that he is involved with his students, and feels that their education mean everything to them, he isn't teaching them because it's not just his job but also that he cares. Rafe also includes in his teachings a broad category of topics to teach his students, the money system, music, and arts & literature, so they are not going to class learning the same thing everyday, its always something new for these kids which keep them interested. I believe that its not just what goes on at home to keep the children in school its what goes on in the classroom also, if the teacher is a great character to be around and wanting you to improve that is what makes you wake up and smile about going to class.

When it comes to the goal in 2014 I want to do better in college, it might be simple for other people but for me its difficult for me, obstacles get in the way, work wears me down. There are people out there that do so much more, if they can do it, so can I! So my actual goal is to work my butt off to get where I need to, I want to graduate from college, and be the first Baer to actually do it, I want to make the money so I can travel and help out organizations that are in need society can be great we just have to help each other out, in the future I am going to encourage my children and my grandchildren to do the same, and learn that you have to work for what you want!


  1. I agree with you that Rafe does a great job in teaching the students! Also I can relate to your goal. I would love to be great in my college classes but it takes a lot of work and it will happen! :)

  2. I agree with you. Rafe is a really good teacher and very encouraging to the kids. I agree with your goal too. I got overwhelmed since I've been out for a few years so getting back into the habit of things is difficult, on top of working too.
