Blog Post #5 Part B

At the beginning of the semester, I created a PLN. My favorite PLN is Symbaloo, right now it is set up as my homepage and it makes it so much easier to get to the websites I love to use all the tme. I've had a Twitter for awhile now.  Symbaloo is a great way to have your personal and business websites right there together.

It takes a big heart to help shape little minds

First problem: Teachers are being hired only because of a degree.
Solution: Hire teachers who not only have a degree, but were in the top of their class.

I couldn't agree more that this a serious problem in schools all across the world. Make teaching a hard job to get because those who are passionate about it will work hard to get there.

Second problem: Seniority
Solution: To make teaching a profession by treating all teachers as equals, and allowing teachers to earn their levels of achievement.

I agree with this to an extent. I believe that seniority should be taken into consideration in some circumstances, but all teachers should be treated equally. I believe that sometimes teachers with tenure forget what teaching is all about.
