You will be stupid. You will worry your parents. You will question your own choices, your relationships, your jobs, your friends, where you live, what you studied in college, that you went to college at all… If that happens, you’re doing it right.

Parents make better teachers

Oh, awesome. Another reason to feel inferior over not being a parent. 

I can imagine that becoming a parent makes you a different teacher, but I doubt it always makes a better teacher. It depends on the individual. Parenting changes everything and just like everything else, sometimes it’s for the better and sometimes it’s not. I dislike the idea that a degree, an age, a lifestyle, etc. makes anyone a better teacher. There are good teachers who represent all aspects of life, just as there are bad teachers who do. Simple as that.

Well said, writteninthekitchensink.

I think being a teacher will definitely make me a better parent (if/when that comes). 

Doesn’t everything depend on your style though—teaching, parenting? And your view of what “better” is? 

Just another way that ‘experienced’ teachers undermine young teachers.

The high turnover of young teachers is not because of ‘bad childless young teachers’, but instead the changing nature of what a ‘career’ is. These days, across all industries, most people don’t spend 35 years in the same job, so why should teaching be any different?

soaking it in: I appreciate...

  • Students who look around the room before they leave and push in classmates’ chairs—without saying anything or wanting recognition for it
  • Coworkers who stop by to ask, “How is your day going?” during the 1 time I have to sit down and “plan” for 15 minutes
  • Faculty members who are on top of…
