Global Teacher Garden

Teachers shall regain their place of glory in the world. Teachers, who mold the next generation in every which way are underpaid and underrecognized. It is high time we changed that.

US School

I teach in two large High Schools. In one the school library is packed all day long with students lined up in the computers. The other also with a large population is dead. I sat and watched only 10 books being checked out by the populace in one day. Both school systems are in CT. Amazing the impact of leadership.

perhaps we are more deeply greaved by the NRA and radical right's obsession with violence and addiction to weapons.

PerLarson, a  friend posted this remarkable insight:
