I am a little upset...

Some people think teachers are dumb. Why? Didn't each one of you learn from a teacher? There was a guy that posted on Mike Cope's blog today(post was on the TAKS test). Here is what he had to say:
"The reason we have a TAKS test in Texas is because teachers were not doing their job. The TAKS is one standard of accountability in a place where you seem to want no accounability.The reason college students go into teaching is because after 12 years of watching it modeled for them they know that they could do at least as well. Try watching Jeopardy with an elementary education major sometime. They don't know jack, save the one or two examples you could give me."
He doesn't know what he's talking about.

I agree--he doesn't know what he's talking about!! You have to be bright to even GET to be a teacher in Texas! I know so many wonderful, loving and yes, BRILLIANT teachers that just want to make a difference in the world. Please, keep on making a difference--I for one, think you are making a HUGE difference!!

I know it's strange for me to comment this far back on your blog, but I agree, too. I seriously doubt that this person has teaching experience, and I doubt that he has any experience with disadvantaged kids.

Will you email me? I want to write more but don't want to weigh down your blog.
