Mr. McClung’s post was very enlightening. It was very inspiring to read the comments from a first year teacher. He touched on many different points, but the theme of his post was that you cannot be a perfect teacher. No matter how much you plan the lessons, things are going to come up that you cannot control. No matter how much you want to push students to succeed, sometimes you just need to listen. This article reminds future educators to keep the focus on the students. Although our superiors will be evaluating us, students have to be at the center of what we do.
