Want to Improve Education? Change the Way You Talk About Teachers

Want to help improve education? Start with something simple: shifting the way you talk to and about teachers.

  1. Don’t say: "I could never be a teacher."
  2. Don’t say: "Teachers have it easy."
  3. On the flip side, don’t say: "Ahh, you teachers are such saints. You have an impossible job."
  4. Don’t say: "I don’t have the patience to be a teacher."

DO say: "Oh, you’re a teacher! Tell me more!"
