As a teacher today sucked!
And as often happens, I cannot separate or differentiate myself from my profession.
If things are not well at work (which I consider an extension of my home for I love what I do) things will not be good with me as well.
Apparently some of the parents at one of the schools where I lecture are complaining that I am not giving “a lot of” homework. They think their children should be leaving school with a hundred page essay due tomorrow every time they have a class with me, because you know… PARENTS ARE TEACHERS. THEY KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT TEACHING!
Poor me, I only went to college, have studied so many other things apart from college, have lived abroad to work and study and have learned everything that there is to know about pedagogy (which I must address, is a continued learning process for it is always changing)
So of course one must conclude that we teachers don’t know WHAT THE HELL WE ARE DOING.
Take it over O masters of education you awesome parents you GO YOU!
P.S.: I just think some of the parents need to see their kids really busy with homework so they don’t have to deal with them.
