I have always attributed my sense of humor to the experiences of growing up and listening to my paternal Grandfather’s numerous and not to mention humorous stories. Like him I too love making people laugh, especially, when it comes to my students.
My late Grandfather had many gifts, and one of his great gifts was his ability to bond with others through his remarkable talent of storytelling. His stories were extremely entertaining and as a teacher I try to incorporate humor in my lesson plans. It’s a great way of engaging my students and helping them focus on whatever lesson is before them.
I like to tell people “those who laugh well live well” and “laughter is the shortest distance between people.” People who are humorous seem to be more successful in life. I am including a link to an article I came across that explains the benefits of having a well-developed sense of humor - I think you will enjoy reading it:
