Never Let Schooling Interfere with Your Education.

Ariel Norling here. I write about education, technology, and my adventures in entrepreneurship- i.e. everything that I've learned outside of a classroom's walls. I am often sarcastic, sometimes serious, but always infinitely curious.

You know something that sucks about education in this country?
I predict this girl will get far more likes on her TFA status than I will when I update my status about a teaching position for next year. I hope I’m wrong, but judging from the past—I won’t be.
I studied to teach for 4 years. She passed an interview and has an impressive transcript.
Who is more qualified to receive a teaching job? Who is more rewarded by society and her peers? 
Shameful, America. 

You know what is actually shameful about America? Bitter teachers. They criticize a movement that betters the reputation of the teaching profession in society, and ostracize new teachers who didn’t go the traditional route. If you think they aren’t well qualified, help them. In the meantime, applaud that well educated people are excited about teaching American youth, even if it is for only two years. That’s better than no new teachers and no excitement.
