this is a great article, especially at this time of year as educators wonder if the stress was worth it…to continue in education or find another job. I disagree with Bill Gates…teachers grow well beyond the third year of teaching. Part of being a teacher is being a learner! Most of the teachers I have known were on a continual quest to improve their practice.
The he heart of the teacher is their biggest asset…you just can’t teach someone to like kids! Everything else, yes!
