I was reminded today of a dinner I attended a few weekends ago. I was out with two of my closest colleagues and we were celebrating the retirement of the eldest. These are always joyous and sad events, but this one was sadder than usual. You see, we wouldn’t have been celebrating at all if education was as it should be. The eldest IS an amazing teacher and was pushed out of the profession too early.

The song reminds me of a sign I have on my desk.
I love being different! Different is best and not fitting in is perfect! I hate being asked by students, “am I doing this right,” or “is this how you want it?” I answer these questions with questions like, are you doing it right,” or is that how you want it?” I hope you enjoyed the song. Think about what we need to do so more people can see all the colors in the rainbow.
