Okay, how many more times are you going to use the following paragraph?
"As a student, I want to be taught how to think and create and explore. I’m not a number in a spreadsheet; I’m a creative and motivated human being. I want my teachers to be paid well, given autonomy and treated like professionals..."?
You've used it all over in the last year or so, including in the New York times. And it's not the same article being syndicated, but different articles.
This is called 'self-plagarism' (check out Craig Silverman at poynter dot org for more details) and it's part of what got Jonah Lehrer canned, so it's probably a good idea for you to immediately stop doing it. Frankly, it's quite lazy.
Just remember, I'm not the only person out there with a good memory who knows how to use Google.
