If you have followed my blog its obvious that I am a huge proponent of integrating technology into instruction and learning. That being said, there is no way technology could ever replace teachers…GOOD teachers! You know, the ones who stay up nights trying to figure out how to present the course material such that it resonates with that one kid that has sunk to the back of the class. The ones who’s empathy outweighs and enhances their pedagogical approach. The ones who look to steadily sharpen their skills and mastery of their craft. The ones who provide confidence boosters to students who have stumbled. The ones who mentor as much as they teach. Yup…you’re the ones I’m talking to. Our educational system breaks down without you. We need you, appreciate you and applaud you! THANK YOU!!!
