Too many people don’t like teachers.
They don’t like them for their summers off, their short work hours, their “gold-lined” pension and their high salaries.
However, the reality is many people love the teacher.
They love the one in the room, helping their kid achieve great things. They love the teacher who coaches the sport, who supports their child when times get tough, who tries everything to connect with the child off the tracks.
Too often the conversation is about “teachers” and rarely about “the teacher”.
That’s how the narrative needs to change.
It’s too easy to throw us all into the pot. It’s too easy to point at the nameless, numberless mass of tax-sucking workers and call them redundant, expendable. I don’t believe parents are ready to say that about the teacher who calls home, the teacher who is sitting waiting to talk at parent’s night.
As teachers, we need to do a better job talking about the teacher too.
Change the conversation from the collective to the individual. From the nameless to the named. From the heartless to big hearted.
People support the teacher. Let’s start talking about that.
