A Bad Day or a Bad Teacher? (Video)

 

Sometimes I feel that the true worth of a teacher is measured by how restrained they are on their worst days. All teachers have days where they are struggling to control their urge to explode at students or the class. But the best teachers find a way to stay calm and maintain a consistency in mood.

I’m not sure this teacher acts like this on a regular basis, and I don’t really like her belittling tone or the employment of a “calm down chair” (a chair I recommend her use for herself), but if her worth was measured by this episode, I wouldn’t have thought she’d have scored very highly.

Hopefully she can use this experience to help motivate herself to be much better on a bad day.
