Do we care about our teachers? Do we make sure to take their wellbeing into account, or do we keep asking more of them, never bothering to fill their tanks back up?
Amy Fast, an Assistant Principal and passionate voice on Twitter, has a lot to say on this subject. With an honesty that’s refreshing and inspiring, Amy holds nothing back as she discusses the state of teachers, how many places aren’t treating educators the way they deserve, and what we can do to mend this wound in our amazing field. Many of the points she makes on this episode, and more, can be found in her book, It’s the Mission Not the Mandates: Defining the Purpose of Public Education.
If you’ve ever felt taken advantage of, asked to do more than you can manage, or simply ignored, this episode is for you, and the people making you feel that way.
