In June, Gov. Gary Herbert said, "A teacher could have gone to sleep 100 years ago, come back 100 years later and felt very comfortable in the classroom because nothing has changed." Of course, it was couched with, "We can't be doing the same old, same old and expect different and better results."
How disheartening there is so little understanding of how the job has changed.
All the century-old responsibilities of teaching are there, but a good part of my day includes technology: email, web pages, online grading and staying current with appropriate uses for teaching tools like You Tube.
