Teaching isn’t about test scores.

Today’s Blog is a little late, as we were away from our usual internet connection and 130kms from home visiting family.

While taking some time out this weekend I was reflecting on blogs I have recently read. This one below, from an American Teacher, reflects on the multitude of roles a teacher takes on. It is  a nice article about the broader ideas of teaching and learning, the global citizen aspect and what a teacher has ‘gained’ from this. Teaching is not always about test scores, it is about nurturing and challenging young people to be their best. It highlights the rewards and adventures of working with students, who shape you as a person as much as you shape them. Have a read, feel free to share your reflections in my comments below.

Until next week,
