This afternoon I was speed reading the “headlines” on my Facebook feed when an I saw an entry from an old classmate of mine. I saw the words, “Who is a teacher”?
Lots of my friends are teachers, many in my family are teachers; hell, I was a teacher. So I took the few seconds to scan the post. Turned out it was the transcript of that epic YouTube video of a teacher giving the business to some snarky smart-ass lawyer.
I realized that I hammer teacher unions. A ton. And that I am highly skeptical, not of publicly funded education, but government run schools. And then I realized that it might seem, perhaps fairly, that I hold teachers in low regard.
And I don’t.
Teachers are incredible animals facing challenges that many of us can’t begin to dream of.
Here’s to teachers!
