|The picture from the article|
The author is a PhD. and she had decided to leave the laboratory work and become a teacher--first of that is awesome!! This is what more experts need to do! It takes such courage to do so and the students benefit from their experience in their field. But this teacher had a wake up call to the lack of respect that teachers feel. It is so true. We put our heart and soul into our job, and try to prove to everyone that we can do it. She mentions that a lot of people try to tell her how to do her job--been there! She mentions how we try to quantify teaching so we know how people are doing....but you can't do that! So as school starts up again for a lot of people...go thank a teacher! We work hard and could use that thank you.
