So, I am the new person and I have done my very best to keep my mouth shut (which many of you know is hard).
But in all of my listening this week, I have a few observations:
– Perhaps the low teacher pay and years of focusing on state testing has made teachers callus to the reason that they began teaching in the first place.
– In every group of teachers, you will have the following personalities: the one that always has a question to ask, the one that is 90 years behind technology, the one that is smarter than everyone else, and the one that can’t be positive about anything.
– Too many teachers are stuck in ‘that’s the way that we have always done it’ mode.
Can’t wait to have students… Teachers are wearing me out!
