My kid’s math teacher: Do what you love…

Absolutely love this guy and what he’s willing to do for our kids. And if you think about it, standing in dirty water to set up a safe bridge for students is a damned fine metaphor for the teaching profession in general.

  1. Thanks for sharing . . .

    Great teachers . . . that’s what they do. I’m a professor in an Education department . . . training tomorrow’s teachers. And increasingly, I look for empathy in my students. Do they have the ability to serve and connect.

    The world’s a tough place and the ‘public good’ in the world is fading fast. No matter today’s viral videos and ‘feel good’ marketing, it’s a rarity to see people trying to understand others’ needs. (Sorry for the soapbox)

    Again, thanks for this . . .
