Center for Teaching Quality

CTQ's teacherpreneur and author Renee Moore challenges the notion of an educational hierarchy: "I am always amused by those who take the educational hierarchy seriously. If it weren't so sad, it would be quaint. " Read more of her ideas about how elementary, secondary, and post-secondary educators should be collaborating rather than hurling stones from isolation.

    All too often, people get caught up in the comparison game. Am I better than him? Is she better than me? Is Lebron the next MJ? Teaching is no different. As a college professor, I've heard the comments (they make me grimace and I try to address them constructively) about how poorly K-12 prepares students for college. I see the backlash in the media about developmental education. I listen to professors defame the "quality" of their colleagues teaching prowess in the same department no less. I have sat there with a stoic expression, waiting to hear someone echo my own thoughts and views. Thank you, Renee. Maybe we can stop the comparisons and focus inward because really, I just want to be the teacher that I can be.
