Teachosaur Footprints


I am a Teachosaur, at times out of synch and out of touch so it seems with the modern educational world. Like many teachosaurs I have left a record of my passing. Footprints pressed into the semi-solid clay of my students. Footprints that are much like ancient dinosaur footprints some of which harden and become semi-permanent reminders  while most will have simply washed or blown away to be lost in time. Either way my life’s work is recorded in my students some of whom I like to believe I have helped and some who I know will never forgive me. I have followed a twisting path filled with mistakes, learning experiences, mis-steps and the occasional success. During the first week of school for many teachers I hope that they can  always remember  as Garrison Keilor tells us , “nothing you do for children is ever wasted.”

About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
