Here’s an example from the latest post:
KYLE PHILLIPS: WITHOUT TEACHERS, WHAT HOPE DO WE HAVE?
“I got into teaching knowing that I wanted to be a newspaper and yearbook advisor because I loved those classes so much in high school. I left high school thinking I would become a photojournalist, but after a volunteer opportunity in college, I found I liked working with high school students in an educational role. So after a couple of years doing that, I switched my focus and decided to get into education.
and one more… so many great teachers and their work highlighted here…
SHARON CLARK: A DIFFERENT KIND OF SUCCESS
As teachers, we have what we have. Of course I wish that things were different, but I have to do my best with what I’m given. Parents don’t wake up and try to send you the toughest kid at their house just to aggravate you. They send you their children to you the way they are, and it’s up to us to work to make them better. And while we do that, they’re making me better too.”
