MCMethodsStudents: i wish you the best in your endeavors and sincerely hope you become successful in your fields of study. in my post i merely reflected on the obvious examples of teachers that have forgotten it is for the kids and found out it had become all about their wallet. you see, your bills don't care if it is for the kids. my wife and i were active for almost 22 years with the PTA's of at least three schools. this enabled us to speak with a myriad of teaching professionals. their professional experiences have given great insight into what had become of the teaching profession. idealistic and enthusiastic young teachers are eagerly anticipated by school systems for obvious reasons. as an example, when my daughter received her business degree i explained to her the difference between book business and real world business. after 2 years in the real world she understood. she went on to earn her MBA and is successful by anyones standards. however, she never forgot our conversation

Young brand new teachers often go into the classroom full of pep and ready to teach. They often find it is harder than it looks / time spent actually teaching competes eith many other duties, sometimes administrators are not buying in to all the new teaching strategies, and the dreaded helicopter parents,who think their little darlings need straight A's and by the way they think you could do better told be sweeter to their wonderful child.It's no wonder its an easy burnout career. I feel for teachers, they have a hard job, and rarely do they get praise, just constsnt criticism. people that think its a cushy job should try subbing it for a day,they would not last a day.

As students of Marietta College, we have been educated to the fullest extent about the issues and politics behind today's education system. We appreciate all that Beverly Center and Dr. Bauer has to offer us. We want to teach because we love working with children and watching them learn and grow as individuals. Our work at Beverly Center has given us ample experience and has helped each of us grow to become better educators. We hope that in the future we do not become disillusioned and remember that teaching is for the kids.

Do they make student teachers join the union or do they wait until they graduate before the union*****puts the squeeze on them?

authority in the classrooms with the full support of their schools administration and the parents. our parents need to understand that their children are not perfect and need stable guidance while in the social and educational atmosphere of our tax-supported schools. we have allowed the political machine to invade and infect too many aspects of not only our lives but the lives of our children. it is time to help teachers make a real difference and let them do what they are paid to do and that is to educate our young people.

the warm and fuzzy meassage from this article is very heartwarming. the skeptical side of me says to remember their names and faces as one day you will see some of them holding a sign in a picket line protesting their low wages. it has always befuddled me as to how one can enter into the education profession and be so blind to the fact of the level of compensation that goes with it. once they are in it a few years the aura begins to fade and they are faced with the bills from life choices that their wages do not cover. then comes the gnashing of teeth regarding low compensation, disillusionment in the classroom and the realization that they have become overeducated and underpaid baby-sitters in most instances. many will try to teach but in the end the federal and state dollars will dictate their curriculum. we need great teachers just like we need great minds. unfortunately the governemnt has the ability to stifle both. our teachers need to be given back the responsibility and authori
