Sasha Alexander spoke with Forensic Teacher Magazine. It's a great interview focusing more on the educational and influential side of what Sasha does along with her thoughts on teaching and children and such. It's a side don't often see, and it's very interesting:
FT: That’s neat. Do you have any advice for students today who are stuck with a teacher who is boring about how to stay interested in something they know is important, but is really poorly taught?SA: My feeling is, that’s kind of the way the world is. Not every job we have, or every situation we’re in is going to be up to the standard of being entertaining for us. But we have to make our way through it and, hopefully, look at it as a challenge to find a way to make it interesting for ourselves. To dig underneath the surface of things. Sometimes it takes a little bit more attention on our part to make something work. Maybe it’s going to the teacher, maybe it’s asking questions, and maybe it’s digging deeper. It’s certainly not giving up and chalking it up to it just being boring, forget about it.
