It used to be “nurses” instead of “teachers.”
I’m glad it’s changed.
Mr. Bodwell… Mrs. Tremblay…Mr. Green… annnd that’s about it. Those are the names of the teachers I remember from school. And that’s quite pathetic, really. I blame 40% of my memory lapse on just not paying much attention in school, and the other 60% on my TEACHERS NOT MAKING ME WANT to pay attention.
There IS a way to effectively communicate to children without them wanting to rip their eyeballs out. If you figure that out, you’re golden. I’m not going to pretend I know how to do that. After all, I don’t want to be a teacher. BUT, I know there is a way.
I came across this Youtube video on my friend Lauren’s Pinterest page. She’s one of my friends who is selfless and motivated and kind enough to want to become a school teacher. And it makes me so proud to know that there are more people out there who are wanting to make a difference in children’s lives, because as I have said in the past, children are our future. The next generations ruler’s of the world. And if you watch this video, you’ll see that if all teachers were like this, we would be on our way to the most successful country in the world.
