When I was younger I used to go to school with my dad and I would pick out a couple of my favorite textbooks and then put it in my hand. When I was a kid my dad would tell me that, “No, what you taught is wrong.” I was pretty much a fan of the ones that taught you to read and understand the alphabet and the words, and so I kept it up for my reading.
I was a math and English major in college so when I took my first math course in college, I was pretty sure I’d never go back to school. I’d rather read a book and learn something new. I was wrong.
My dad and I thought we were going to teach our kids the same thing we did when we were kids. But not so much. The truth is we took a lot of our kids’ education away from them.
But back then, we didn’t give them much more freedom. They still had to learn the basics and take the tests. And even if they did pass the tests, the teachers would still make them do other things like do more homework and do the same thing over and over again. As parents, we wanted our kids to do as much as they could do so we gave them the tools to succeed without having to take the tests.
This is the hardest part. It’s not easy. I’ve never seen this in a game, but I think it’s something that’s going to take a while to get used to. Hopefully I can get it out of the way as far as the kids go, but I’m not sure.
Yeah, you’re right. Its not like we can just put them into a regular class and expect them to do well. Thats not how we do things anymore. We give them a set of tools to succeed. It’s called education.
When they were in school, this was the best part. Teachers were giving them the tools to succeed, and they were trying so hard that they were failing, or were failing so hard that they had to go to the teacher, or the principal, or the school counselor. We’re giving them the tools to succeed without having to take the tests.
I have a friend who is a teacher. He thinks that teachers should be like the superhero teachers in the old school movies. They have to show up at school and act like they’re super cool and the kids love them. I had a teacher who showed up late for school. The teacher that came in first was the one who brought the best grade. When he got there it was all because he showed up early. He actually did the most work and got the best grade.
Teachers. As a lifelong educator, a teacher is a person who is invested in helping others succeed. They don’t have to be like the superheroes (they usually aren’t) and they are not expected to get an A on every test. They have to show up early and act like theyre super cool and the kids love them. That’s how I was raised.
When I was little I had a family member who always called me “The kid I love” and when I saw them in the “kids” room, they seemed to take my attention too. They were going to tell me that I got my grades on a Thursday and they asked me out on the Friday.
