A Teacher's Responsibility
Are you experiencing the heat where you are? It is 7 PM here in Louisiana and it is still in the 90's! The forecast for us is more hotter days! Whee...hotter than today...and I thought this day was miserable.
My first cousin's daughter is an elementary school teacher who use her Facebook for her profession. I enjoy reading some of her postings because sometimes they hold a deeper meaning. This is one of them below:
Parents constantly write notes asking if she will do things concerning their child. Things that should be done by the parent, etc. but certainly not her. One instance: Take a picture of her boy to send to her mother, since she's always taking pictures, and she does not have a camera, duh!
I will venture to say, it is even harder today for teachers than back in the day when I was in the classroom.
Do you think teachers should be expected to do things for his/her students that are obviously the parents' responsibility? I would love to see your comments on this one!
