Quote of the Week for October 27, 2013

"If the school board gives the teacher lousy instructions, the teacher can easily put up his hands and say, 'I'm just doing my job.' The great teacher doesn't do that, of course. He provides a buffer between the administrators and the his real customers, the students." Seth Godin

I found this quote a few weeks ago in a blog post called The GIGO Buffer.  It completely resonates with how I feel.  I am the buffer between insanity and students.  (Substitute school board with any influence on education that is frustrating you.)

  1. What a great quote, Mary, and I hope it inspires a lot of teachers. I understand how tough your job is, and I'm so glad you don't hold up your hands and submit to mediocrity. Thanks for caring.
