Teachers complain. They complain a lot. No, really. You can’t imagine the things teachers say about students, colleagues, administrators, parents, and everyone else. When I hear their complaints now, I may nod, but it is like white noise to me; with one exception. When I hear, “I taught it, but they didn’t learn it” I pay attention. I want to know who said it; I want to remember that person and I accept the challenge they unknowingly made to me to help them better understand what it means to teach.

@garyackerman I know, nothing worse than having teachers as friends. I am now at the age where they have all retired. :)

@garyackerman I struggle with the constant complaints, but I also find myself falling prey to making them as well
