Fortunately, someone else out there realizes the folly of drawing attention to education by bashing it. Over at The Huffington Post, Heather Wolpart-Gawron blogs about promoting teaching rather than bashing it. This editorial really hit home for me personally. Like the author, I did not get into teaching because I felt like it was my calling or because I had some inherent desire to inspire, save, motivate, etc., young minds. In spite of this, I fell in love with it after realizing I’m pretty darn good at it.
It’s a good, quick read. I highly recommend it to all the other educators out there. Go check it out now.
