Our Views of Teachers

A friend shared this on Facebook tonight.

(By friend I mean someone I knew in college but haven’t seen in twenty years. And someone who is not a teacher but is a parent.)

I appreciate this view of teachers far more than those that make us look lazy or incompetent or some other negative view.

At the same time, I worry that we are only able to view teachers from one end of the spectrum or the other. The hero version isn’t fantastic either. Teachers are human. We work hard, yes, but we are flawed like anyone else.

I guess I’m not really sure what I would like to see folks posting on Facebook…
