I went to a teaching credential info session at Cal State East Bay and I was hella annoyed for the fact that there were hella folks dressed up in suits just for an info session. It begs to question if folks want to be teachers or authority figures.
I am not tryin’ to say that I’m going to be the bestestestest teacher in the whole wide world one day, but there are so many people in the field that don’t belong there whatsoever. I don’t know how you cannot appreciate an hour out of someone’s day to help mold their minds, think critically, and help make a better future utilizing their passions. It’s not even that, but give them a space to speak their emotions and engage in face to face conversation especially in a technological day and age. I know the educational system is fucked up in so many levels when it comes down to racism/white supremacy, male supremacy, and heterosexism etc., but at the very least we need fuckin’ passionate people really down to motivate students and be open to learning from them as well.
I personally learn best when it’s face to face, when I can state my opinions and be raw, when my soul, my emotions, my story, and all of my senses are fully engaged and welcomed. Lastly, when no one is there to judge but offer advice for the better,
(I have a shit more to say more to say but…….)
That’s what I look for in every space I enter even outside of a classroom.
FUCK THE DUMB TEACHERS/PROFESSORS THAT WASTED MY DAMN TIME AND MONEY!
