Richard Swerdlow says another year of school may be in the books but the teaching and learning never end.
Another school year is over. As I’ve done at the busy end of each year of my teaching career, I try to find a moment to reflect on the lessons the year has brought. After all these years, I still find something new.
And this year, here's what I discovered. School is not over.
Oh, it's over on paper, but school is never really over. All throughout your life you will be a student, classroom or not, and all through your life you will be a teacher, teaching credential or not.
Recently I was talking to a lawyer friend, who told me he feels like a teacher - explaining legal concepts in simple, easy-to-understand language. That's teaching.
