I’m knee deep in LearnZillion work as I came back from my long break.
The Gilder Lehrman conference at USC was great–wonderful professors, cool colleagues, and a special shout out to the folks at Tiki Ti’s for making things just a little bit better on Wednesday night.
I saw this video of David Letterman’s Top Ten List on my Facebook feed and wanted to share it for two reasons:
A. the satirical reasons Letterman comes up with may be fresh and new to his juvenile audience, but we teachers have heard enough of it.
B. Isn’t it a tad insulting when TFAers, especially those who HAVEN’T EVEN STARTED THEIR TERM YET, are brought out for this little stunt? If Letterman really wanted to thank teachers he would’ve included some veterans who know there way around the classroom.
Personally, I want to see those ten kids in two years…all glassy eyed, strung out and ready for their Morgan Stanley/McKinsey/CitiGroup/PWC/etc. job they really wanted in the first place.
Comments are always welcome.
