Edutech for Teachers

Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Another Good Laugh!


I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure if I can take another seven weeks of the political ads, commercials, articles, etc. related to the upcoming elections—especially when it comes to some of the ridiculous commentary regarding teachers and our profession. Besides expressing your opinion via a vote and belting out an occasional scream, all one can really do about all of this unfair and unnecessary teacher bashing is……laugh!

Despite the fact that others don’t always acknowledge our value, worth and importance in this society, we—as educators—know that we make a difference in the lives of our students! After all, that’s why we got into this business in the first place—not for the money, the summers, the pension…

So, the next time you feel like you’ve heard enough or read enough of the criticism, just think of this cartoon and remember that many of these politicians (and others) really don’t have a clue about what it means to teach—an action that involves so much more than simply departing knowledge. Instead of constantly finding ways to ridicule and judge us, maybe these critics should be thanking us! Just sayin’…











To all of my colleagues across the planet—Keep fighting the good fight!
