I can recall an event at school that shaped my mentality towards teachers and learning. I was not classified as a gifted student in school, but I did fall more into the talented student with loads of potential category of students. However, teachers in the early 90s are nothing like the teachers of present day 2020.
Gone are the days of teachers standing in the hallway drinking coffee for 20 minutes of class time and putting busy work on the board for students to complete. Teachers are now meeting students’ needs in the classroom and transferring their skills into businesses and becoming entrepreneurs. We are all good at something and we know too much to not be business owners. I’m just saying…teachers do a lot, we know a lot, and we solve problems ALL DAY.
