Education writer, Mary Ellen Flannery in her article, “When Teachers Take Charge,” claims that teacher-led schools could be a part of the future of education. Teacher-led schools are schools where teachers and educators decide what they want the students to learn and what they want to teach. They work together on everything and collaborate with each other to plan. In the article it states that, “Reiche teachers gladly put in the time because it’s so motivating to see the results for student success.” There are many teachers who do care about their students succeeding which is why teacher-led schools should shape the future of education. Teachers who put in time for their students and actually care about what they’re learning are the teachers

Between 1895 and 1903 Mary instructed at a number of small missionary schools throughout the South, including Haine’s Institute in Augusta, Georgia. In 1898, she met and married Albertus Bethune and in 1899 gave birth to her only child, Albert McLeod Bethune. In 1904, Bethune navigated to Daytona Beach, Florida, where she founded the Daytona Educational and Industrial Institute for Negro Girls. By 1912, the school provided a liberal arts high school curriculum and occupied nine full-time teachers. In 1923, Daytona Institute united with Cookman Institute, becoming the coeducational Bethune-Cookman College.
At school Most Americans believe that a good education saves lives. Even so, something happens when money is required. People start wearing sweatshirts with the words embellished on them “college is for suckers” (Hrabowski). Many people would agree, “It is a well-known fact that in America, public schools never have enough money to run, and colleges and universities are expensive.” The main reasons that schools cut anything are because of budget deficits”(1).
In this section Marjorie was forced to resign her position from her school basketball team when receiving a letter from a student employee of the school; Marcia Arnolds. The truth is that Marcia was forced to send this letter to Marjorie from orders from Mignon. Before this event, Marjorie was enjoying her time at school and her relationship with her friends. She had not cared what Mignon did to her directly other than the fact that she continued to try to sabotage her friendship with her friends. However, after discovering the truth behind her resignation she had felt angry.
On yesterday, I did not have a substitute for my class. So, Thea Johnson was asked to watch my class. As Thea walked through my class, I began thanking her. She mentioned jokingly, “She haven’t had her medicine, and she didn’t want to be bothered.” She told me I had to do something about by “crazy students” and I better have some work.
Godfrey went beyond teaching students art education and created inspirational blueprints for art laboratories in schools throughout Pennsylvania. She believed the art classroom was just as important as the instruction, “Just as no one would be content with ineffective and inadequate facilities for living…inadequacies for teaching and learning in a poorly designed and equipped art laboratory… The emotional well-being of the students, too, is closely related to his intellectual, social, and physical development and is greatly influenced by the physical environment in which he spends his school hours.” (Mary Godfrey Papers, Box 1, Folder 16). Mary.
In the article What Happens When Students Control Their Own Education by Emily Richmond that was published in October of 2014, explains a new radical education curriculum whose goal is “helping students develop their critical thinking skills while better preparing them for the real-world challenges of college and career.” Rather than doing more of the same, the entire district opted to implement a new educational approach; a student-centered curriculum where teachers function as coaches rather than lecturers and students are evaluated based on their passions and interests and where their deficits and weaknesses were addressed. Richmond includes several pieces of evidence in her article to support student based curriculum by explaining “students are shouldering more responsibility for their own learning.
1.) Creating dialogue that will help introduce a conflict for why the character Lauren is maybe missing was a suggestion I found intriguing and would allow me to create a little more background information. Simple dialogue such as, “Please don’t hurt my parents!” and a description of her being taken away will start the story. Want readers to quickly learn someone is being taken against their own, also keeping the abductees incognito.
I found this section to be important because it shows a few other forces that shape schools beside just the philosophies of education. This section talks about constructivism which “asserts that knowledge cannot be handed from one person to another, but must be constructed by each learner through interpreting and reinterpreting a constant flow of in. This section also talks about behaviorism. Behaviorism is “derived from the belief that free will is an illusion and that human beings are shaped entirely by their environment.” This was an interesting thought to read about being a future educator, because I had never really thought of that concept.
In reading “My Chicken Soup Story” by Sammie Burman, I see a teacher that cared so much, that she lost focus of her students and their needs. As a first year teacher, I am so caught up with how I can share my passion to the class, that I need to take a step back and remember the reason why I became an educator.
It is important for me to recognize that being a teacher isn’t an easy job, it’s more than just lecturing students and drilling information in which I want them to regurgitate. Being a teacher is caring about the individual “whole student” their home life, their like’s and dislikes as well as their strengths and weaknesses, all in hopes of pushing each student to be as successful as
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). Research by York-Barr and Duke (2004), states “teacher leadership roles range from assisting with the management of schools to evaluating educational initiatives and facilitating professional learning communities” (p. 1). While teacher leadership is evolving, the perceptions that teachers have regarding themselves as leaders has not truly been uncovered. This literature review is an attempt to highlight the research surrounding teacher leadership. It begins with the foundations of teacher leadership which includes the history of teacher leadership, the evolving definition of teacher leadership, and finally a summary of current teacher leadership development programs.
On the other hand, some teachers love what they do, and they should get more recognition for
