Re: “Where Have All the Teachers-in-Training Gone?

I grew up in AZ in a time (The 60s) when teachers were paid somewhat well and very well respected. There were issues. The main one being most teachers knew their subjects well but had no idea how to teach the subject.. Perhaps a math teacher should have failed math in order to understand why some students do not catch on to how math works?? That issue left a harden heart toward teachers. I recall a history teacher, a subject I loved, saying she was a harden dis-likable person because she wanted to make sure she was remembered. I also had teachers whom names I make myself remember because they were caring knowledgeable adults and loved what they were doing even if it was a subject they knew very little about . Times hopefully have changed but maybe just maybe it is far more important for teachers to know more about children and learning then say calculus. A Masters in teaching and a handy computer for answering a question is perhaps an option. By the way. I moved to Iowa. they have some of the best teachers in the USA and are also paid much better. So tell AZ to stuff it. Move to Iowa . The cost of living is awesome just bring your LONG underwear!
