Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves.

A Professor for the University of Massachusetts Lowell, Carol Hay, addresses the manor of the misconception that women professors have one job, to teach. Hay writes this to express her opinion about how students may believe that women professors are going to coddle them, or in a guy's case, be their “plaything”. In order for Hay’s point to be heard she uses a strict, yet pleading, tone to get her readers to understand that being a woman professor can be tough. In today's world many people don't grasp the fact that women aren't just toys or always supposed to treat people like their children. A professor that is a woman is indeed professional about her job so students need to understand that being a professor is the only thing they are to them.
Teachers are the life-blood of school districts across the United States. They are masters of their specific grade-level content and work tirelessly to manage the learning and well-being of their students. Teachers are the academic leaders of the learning environment within their classrooms and collaborate with their students throughout the year in order to facilitate learning, and foster creativity and problem solving.

Teachers are being placed in the center of how schools function and are being asked to aid in crucial decisions about the academic direction of the school (Warren, 2016).
Even though this motivated her to become a supporter of reformation, she couldn’t succeed with her goals because she was discriminated and ignored for being a woman. This was the last drop for her, she became friends with many activists, then met with them and discussed their mutual concerns over a wide range of issues. She was the second president of NAWSA and by the time she was over, a lot of progress was made (Cullen-DuPont). Susan B. Anthony was one of the many significant people in the movement that was key to the motivation, campaign and organization of their
What if the world didn’t think? What would happen if people didn’t take what they learned from past experiences, whether it had a negative or positive effect, and apply it to future situations. What would happen if people made decisions simply based on the fact that they wanted to fit in, without thinking about what consequences it could have on them. In the short story, “Abuela Invents the Zero” by Judith Ortiz Cofer, Constancia isn’t making the best decisions with her Abuela. In an excerpt from Little Women, the March sisters craved attention from their mother and had to make the difficult of helping others.
In my opinion, most people’s life and/or career choices at one point or another has been influenced by a teacher. Without teachers, all professions would not be possible. I believe that teachers have the ability to improve and change the world one student at a time. My choice to become a teacher was made with a lot of thought and consideration. I remember all the teachers in my past that were helpful, loving, kind, happy, sweet, patient and understanding.
