There's nothing quite like the first year, but the work load does not stop there. Yes, each year you get better & each year you get a better handle, but this will always be the job that never ends. One parent tonight said to me, "well, I thank you for your work. I don't think people give y'all teachers enough credit. I mean, you guys should be the ones w/ the salaries that these ball players get." "Thank you. Thank you. But, you know, I definitely don't do it for the money."
There's a lot on the teaching mind I'm bound to get on paper, but for now -
Did you know, each year...
1 in 57 doctors lose their license.
1 in 93 lawyers theirs.
but, for teachers, 1 in 2,500 lose their credential.
As an educator in public education thirsting for what next steps we can take towards positive reform of our schools, how do you think I digest this fact? Just food for thought that'll (hopefully) drive my next post...
