Let’s get one thing straight: This is not a site for complaining. TeacherPains is a place for solutions. If you’ve spent any time teaching in a public school, you’ve noticed how much of a mess America’s education system is in. Again, if you’ve ever worked in a public school, you’ve also noticed that most folks tend to complain about their problems and not do anything about it. TeacherPains is a place for the people who actually do the work of teaching (not politicians, bureaucrats, or administrators) to provide solutions to the issues holding our kids back. Lets make this a movement. Let’s move and act to make education something that helps our students really succeed.
As a new teacher in an urban school district, I can provide some unique insight into the muck that is the American education system. This site will serve as an anonymous outlet that will help me share my thoughts on teaching and education. It is also a place for others to express their ideas on what we can do to brighten our students’ futures.
A little bit about myself:
I am a first-year teacher somewhere in America.
I am a person with a degree and experience in education.
I am a professional.
I am a person who believes that education is about the students.
Please feel free to comment with ideas or questions! I’m excited about the future we can make together.
