Teachers need more time sitting in students’ desks – The Denver Post


Teachers need more time sitting in students’ desks – The Denver Post.

 

This is an interesting article that hits on a salient point.  Teachers do need to spend more time thinking about how students learn and how they (teacher) are being perceived in class.  A wise teacher once told me that no teacher should ever teach a grade he/she cannot remember being in.  For the most part, I agree. It is essential that as teachers we do much more than simply meet the standards and cover the material.  We need to challenge our students, hold them accountable, inspire them to love learning and teach them to expect more from themselves.

 

I would love to hear what you think too.  Are mediocre teachers good enough fro our children?
