Have you ever noticed that some teachers think the work of being an educator would be absolutely awesome if it wasn’t for the damn kids?
Or those stinkin’ parents?
Or those silly administrators?
Or those reprehensible peers?
Or those annoying blogger types? (Okay, I made this last one up as I really couldn’t find any examples of folks who fit this profile. And yes, I searched and searched and searched. Matter of fact, I looked everywhere except in the mirror. LOL!)
All of us have an opinion on what is wrong with education, but how much time do we spend in our conversations speaking about that which is right?
I like the damn kids.
I seek to break bread with the stinkin’ parents.
Okay, screw the administrators. I mean even they feel that way about one another, right? (JOKING!! Admins are so often placed in untenable positions that I don’t know why more people do not recognize that we are often seeing in our schools is a crisis of administration. Too much work for too few people with too many skill sets required to sensibly prosper in the position. I’ll leave that for another blog.)
As for the annoying bloggers, if you come across any, please let me know. Truly, they ought to be tarred and feathered.
