What teachers make

Seth Godin says this is one of the most forwarded poems of all time, but it never reached me. It’s a bit self-righteous, but then the guy does actually seem pretty righteous. Maybe it’s the American earnestness which didn’t settle too well in my English stomach.

All the same, one line stayed with me: “I can make a C+ feel like a congressional medal of honour and an A- feel like a slap in the face”. Clearly the guy knows something about differentiated learning outcomes.
