This teacher earns six figures teaching Dungeons & Dragons classes online
ChalkFace has been reporting on a variety of issues with young people related to gaming. Reading this article reminds one of a famous quote from Mark Twain, “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Here is a great example how an imaginative teacher has turned their hobby into a well-paying job, using D&D to teach math, reading, and problem solving — and also shows how many other things can be taught through computer games.
The benefit of what this clever teaching is apparent from the article, “These kids, they’re from every walk of life. I work with special needs students who learn how to open up and participate through D&D. It’s amazing to see the difference in some of these kids from when a class begins to how they’re interacting by the time the course ends.”
