I think that its obvious from the fact that my fellow COETAILERS and I are in this course that we do not subscribe to be the kind of teacher that is showcased in the video, “When I become a teacher.” Yet I am sure that we have all come across at least one teacher who we can compare to the ones being described here. I came across my ‘teacher’ while I was student teaching. He was a fourth grade teacher scheduled to retire the next year and everyone knew it. Sadly his students that year did not learn a lot of things. In an international school setting its harder to be the teacher described in this video but stateside I think its a whole different ball game. I have only taught overseas so I do not know the systems as well but in the movie “Waiting For Superman” I do remember the teachers who are not effective educators being referred to as the “lemons” and how school systems can not get rid of the “lemons” and so principals end up doing the ‘lemon dance’ and moving these teachers from one school to another within the district. What a shame! We sure owe our students a lot more than a system that does the lemon dance. Why aren’t we there yet?
