In the HUFFINGTON POST: Teachers Need a Village

 

My article appeared in the Huffington Post Education section last week.

Teachers Need a Village” is about the support that Educators need to do an excellent job. When I started a new job which required teaching seven grade levels, I created my own science teacher network in Los Angeles.

As I said in the article,

“Since 1990, I’ve taught in public and private schools. I have learned that teachers might as well be Olympians: Our work, like a competitive sport, is a “live performance under pressure,” as the author Tony Wagner puts it. Even when the lesson is not quite right or the smart board no longer works, the students are sitting there and something must happen. We’ve all heard friends in other professions comment that on a day when they don’t feel well, they just close their office doors and play zone out — but there’s no such luxury when thirty students are walking into your room every hour.”
