This is an intriguing article that expresses the opinions and views of a former fashion designer-turned-teacher, who also ended up leaving education because of the brokenness of the system. As a person who has never left the classroom, I always find it insightful to see others’ views of the work we do. From student to professional…it’s all I know. While the article is depressing to an extent, it goes to show the incredible and truly miraculous work you do each day to make education “work” for kids in a system that often doesn’t. Hats off to you. Just as this article shows, not everyone can handle it. Those who can and who stay with the profession are a special and elite lot. They are each of you.
