    To get more students interested in my classes, I need to be more popular, which means my classes have to be more fun. What are some specific steps I can take? I am not naturally peppy and crazy about dealing with kids. I have adapted to teaching kids, as opposed to being a natural (i.e. chirpy, outgoing, extroverted, bundle of energy, etc.).

    I teach many kinds of art to high school kids.

    There's already a discussion on this topic at http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/showthread.php?t=184991.

    A to Z Forums policy discourages more than one thread on the same topic at the same time by the same member: the site owner's rationale, with which I agree, is that the discussion works better when it's not spread across multiple forums.
