It’s not where you teach, it’s why

A former student spent his formative years as a teacher at a school that catered for working-class children of ethnic minorities. Later, he was transferred to a school with children from poverty-stricken families. Last night at the reunion gathering, he told me that after the summer, he would teach at a school with a middle-class intake.

When I asked him which type of school he would enjoy working at the most, he replied, “I teach with the same purpose and enthusiasm, so it doesn’t matter where I teach.”

Now, that’s what I call teacher professionalism.
