Best Teacher, Worst Teacher, and Why the Profession?
How do you determine a best and worst teacher? Who makes the decision? What are the guidelines to grade a best or worst teacher? Nobody knows, but everyone has had a best teacher and a worst teacher. I have worked with the best of the best and the worst of the worst. From a teacher who can only cared about a paycheck to a teacher who would do anything to see her students grow as a person and succeed. The best teacher I have ever worked with is, Mrs. Kristie Lemons. She is a kindergarten through fifth grade special education teacher. She is very committed to her classroom, to her children, and also her co-workers. She is very kind, loving, caring, generous and Mrs. Lemons always goes above and beyond for the classroom. She is very structured and repetitive for the sake of the children in her classroom who need daily schedules. She is always giving a 110% even if you only asked for 50%. Mrs. Lemons has great ideas that may or may not always work, but it is always in the best interest of the child or children. She believes that all children have a right to learn and can learn know no matter what their disability is, and she never gives up. Mrs. Lemons is very committed and dedicated to her school. She is always looking for new ways to help better serve the children, the parents, as well as the teachers. Her willingness to work with the parents and help them deal with the child or children's problem is amazing. She is very good at what she does;, I consider her the best of the best. She has shown me how hard it is to be a special education teacher yet how wonderful it is at the same time. She has definitely changed my life and made me want to further my education to become a special education teacher. After boasting about how wonderful Mrs. Lemons is, I should inform you on how awful Mr. Barrin Seal was. Last year, I was a substitute teacher pretty much all year for Mr. Seal....
