    On Teaching: A letter from a colleague

    Thursday, April 8th, 2010

    Dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.  One man, a proud CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. 

    He argued, “What’s a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?  You know what they say about teachers: ‘Those who can, do.  Those who can’t, teach.’” To stress his point he said to another guest, “You’re a teacher, Bonnie.  Be honest.  What do you make?”

    Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, “You want to know what I make?  Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.  I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor.  I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can’t make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.” 

    “You want to know what I make?” She paused and looked at each person at the table.  ”I make kids wonder.  I make them question.  I make them apologize and mean it.  I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.  I teach them to write and then I make them write.  Keyboarding isn’t everything.  I make them read, read, read.”

    “I make them show all their work in math.  They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.  I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know in English while preserving their unique cultural identity.  I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.  I make my students say the Pledge of Allegiance, because we live in the United States of America.  Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.”

    “Then when people try to judge me by what I make, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant.  You want to know what I make?  I MAKE A DIFFERENCE .  What do you make Mr. CEO?” His jaw dropped, he went silent.
