As a teacher of 23 years, I like to think of myself as an "edutainer". I'm an educator who likes to be entertaining, as well. This way I can teach the students, but keep their interest levels peaked, as well. Many of my ideas go off the well-worn path of what one may expect from a typical unit or lesson of study. I create some "out there" ideas; but it's these type of ideas that grasp my student's attention and invigorate their motivation and passion for learning. Whether others follow or not, I'm taking my products and my students to levels beyond the typical handout or worksheet.
