3 thoughts on “Teachers have three loves”

  1. In my day, young’un, there were three kinds of pre-college teachers:

    1) The ones like the post (alas, very few – we all love the ones we encountered)

    2) The ones who objected to juvenile criticism of their purported subject matter expertise and their mistaken assumptions that punishment was a more effective defense than actual knowledge

    3) The ones who had the great sense to negotiate a bargain – don’t disrupt the class, pass the tests, and you can read anything you want while it’s going on. (Since boredom was the primary issue, this was always acceptable.)
