Yep, it’s that time again! Weekly blog day!
Education News – Teachers
Yesterday I was reading a fantastic article in the Guardian – The secret life of a teacher: what stops me walking away? The children and it made think of how fantastic our teachers are.
At Schools Plus, we work when the school supposedly closes – the kids go home and so can the teachers. However, more often than not the teachers don’t go home, many stay locked in their classrooms until late at night. Some can stay as late as 22:00 when we pack up. Regardless of the fact they got there 0730 in the morning and they too have families at home to go to. Many come back over the weekend, yes even Sunday mornings.
They don’t do it for fun, they stay to plan, to mark, to finish projects etc. I asked the teachers why do they do it and every one of them said for the children. To me, this is such wonderful selfless devotion that makes the teachers amongst the greatest people in the world. Yes, I know there are countless other great people in other great professions. I just think teacher are often overlooked one by the classes they teach but also in a country where there so much doom and gloom they are often overlooked by everyone else.
Closer to home
