A thousand little things I miss about teaching

TEACHER VOICE: "I miss the truly sacred moment when I assume the mantle of caretaker – the goodbye, the child in my arms, the tears of love. I miss the head resting against my shoulder, sad but secure, discovering that the world is a safe place to trust. And I miss the transformation that happens, abruptly at times, when the child bounds away from me, eager and ready."

I miss teaching as I used to know it. When I left my preschool classroom in March, I thought I would be returning after a week of spring break.

“When white folks are suffering” - Andrea Perry This guy is a clown and a piece of 💩 ...bitch bitch bitch and bitch that’s all you liberal as*holes do
If you are all about education how about correcting the caption under the picture of the principal? It should read “an Avoyelles” not “a Avoyelles”.
When I am more into education in USA I wonder what kind of society the really are because when we see on the news Washington invaded, blocked or impose sanctions on say Venezuela, Syria or Iran because the say those countries have no democracy and fail ti give well being to their own citizens. I read black people, brown people, colored people, Latinos all the racial rainbow of humankind. We almost forget we are talking about `CHILDREN` American children born in the USA. Worst when I read more of the teachers `ARE WHITE` What does it mean Are they saying white teachers CAN NOT TEACH COLORED CHILDREN. It is little known by American people that at college, master and PhD level 80 percent of students ARE FOREIGNERS. And the best are Asians. If I were a white teacher at high school or college I would be very worried by these FACTS. But as an outsider with education labor and policy creator mostly in Special Education I can say answers ARE NOT AMONG TEACHERS WHITE OR ELSE BUT IN SAME AMERICAN PEOPLE who believe in `WE THE PEOPLE` our FOUNDATION Fathers gave Us as our Legacy. As Enoch saw when he was in the Glory of God. Just summer reflections cause by high temperatures. Maybe just need a cold lemonade. Thanks for listening me. 😍
