The “People Power” Education Superbook: Book 18. School Teacher Resource Guide By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $3.30
I was a teacher for awhile. I started because I liked education and wanted to do something to express myself creatively but after I taught a basic psychology course called Human Growth &... More > Development over 30 times, I said to myself I don’t believe in the fake science of psychology anymore. I could keep doing this to earn a living but everyday I feel like I’m wasting my life. The point is that it’s a great profession if you like the course material and the students who are mostly young, well-intentioned and inspired. I’m pro-teacher because I was one. I think it’s one of the few truly honorable professions. This is not a teacher job book. I wrote a separate book for that. In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone could have.
