This blog post is best slice-of-life I've seen into the world of teaching in a long time. The anonymous author strikes me as a pretty good teacher. His advice is practical, and also a little disillusioning. Did my teachers see themselves as mentors cum bureaucrats cum parole officers this way?
PS: I found this link here, at Joanne Jacobs' blog. For anyone interested in education, this is a blog worth keeping an eye on.
