An Open Letter To Educators
I know exactly what Morgan Bayda is talking about when she tells us about finding it hard to stay awake in some classes. I face this challenge every week. Teachers stand in front of the room and read straight off of their power point, or right of the book. I find it so frustrating because I am paying big bucks for my education that I could receive at home. I loved the video by Dan Brown and his point that he quit school because he feels that he is being cheated out of his education. When I experience this in the class room it just reminds me of the kind of teacher that I do not want to be. I will strive to encourage creativity in the class room. We have to make that step towards changing so our future generations are not left behind.
Don't Let Them Take Pencils Home
Way too often teachers focus on themselves and not the students. I had a teacher in fifth grade who genuinely cared about his students. We had so many interactive activities and he talked to us like we were actual humans. He is one of the reasons why I chose to become a teacher. My main focus will be my students and what is best for their education, and their future.
