What Do Teachers Make?

May 13, 2009

I was working my way through some Digg.com pages and I found this video. It got me excited, and reminded me that a teacher is someone who changes lives.

I haven’t even begun my first year of teaching yet, and I have heard these lines from friends and coworkers, “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.” This type of cynicism is poison. Better yet, it is a glacier. I hope to melt a bit of the ice in my time.

This teacher takes a passionate twist on the “What do teachers make?” question. Enjoy!

I can’t wait to get into the classroom. I hope I can have half as much spirit as this man.
