I’ve never believed not for one minute the saying “those that can’t, teach”.
Of all the aphorisms out there I can’t think of one that diminishes the fine work of so many in what has to be the most under-appreciated of professions.
So I was quite taken with this article by T. Lynn Wolf, a former staffing software marketing executive who changed careers and is now teaching elementary school. Her software position was with Clearview (now part of API Software), a competitor I had always admired for the way they conducted business.
Congrats T. Lynn and to all the great teachers out there.
