12 Things Kids Want from Their Teachers
So, I closed my facebook account and signed up for Twitter. Instead of celebrities, humorists, and athletes, I decided to follow educators. Angela Maiers is a name that came up on a list of suggested tweeters. In addition to her tweets, she maintains a blog, writes books, gives talks, has a family, etc. Whew.
This is an important list because it's so easy to fly from 8:05a to 3:20p, cramming as much crap as possible into the day, and forget that we're dealing with children. Not objects. Not numbers. In fact, they are the babies that other people had.
