It’s Not Because They’re Mean

I want to reflect on this (and the other reflections from students who taught the class) in a future post, but for now I just wanted to share…

I learned that teachers actually have a really difficult job that they make look really easy because they do it all the time. I realized that they create lesson plans every night, and then teach class the next day. They always have to grade assignments and evaluate student participation. I think that by being able to teach a class you have to know ridiculous amounts about your area of study, and this is why people go to college to be teachers, so that they are able to teach classes on a certain subject. I’ve learned why teachers get so stressed about things being late, and it’s not just because they’re mean, it’s because they have so much to do and little time to do it.

Here’s to all of you who do it every day.
