One day at the end of class Little Jenny's teacher asked the students to go home and think of a story, to be concluded with the moral of that story.

The following day the teacher asked for the first volunteer to tell their story. Little Sophie raised her hand. "My dad owns a farm and every Sunday we load the chicken eggs on the truck and drive into town to sell them at the market. Well, one Sunday we hit a big bump and all the eggs flew out of the basket and onto the road." When the… Continue

Beware of Girls

One day, a girl, 16yrs old, heard from her mother that if she does a regular prayer for 4 yrs, a divine "Angel" would come to her in her dreams & give her 3 boons. So she decided to do it. She completed 4 years successfully, doing prayer regularly.

Now it was a day for "Angel" to come. So she slept earlier with…

Please, Don't Ask Me To Do That Again

A student comes to a young teacher's desk. She glances down the hall, closes his door, kneels pleadingly. "I would do anything to pass this exam."

She leans closer to him, flips back her hair, and gazes meaningfully into his eyes. "I mean..." she whispers, "...I would do... anything!!!"

He returns her gaze. "Anything?"


His voice turns to a whisper. "Would"

"Please, don't ask me to do that again."…

You're A Teacher If...


1) You find humor is other people’s stupidity.

2) You want to slap the next person who says, "Must be nice to have all your holidays and summers free."

3) When out in public, you feel the urge to talk to strange children and correct their behavior.

4) Marking all A’s on the report card would make your life SO much simpler.

5) You think people should be required to get a government permit before being allowed to reproduce.

My dear students,


As a teacher, I cherished the moments with you in your class. Yours was the most wonderful class I have ever had. I found your class wonderful for the reasons I cannot fathom. There are moments in the classroom when I can hardly hold the joy. When…

The Future of Education?

Having just found this Ning, I was asked why I wanted to join the "Future of Education?" I was intriqued immediately by the question as my first response was " Why wouldn't I?" and its follow-up question "Why wouldn't EVERY teacher?"

This question has been pushing me to my "leading edge" (Thanks Joelle!) for quite some time now.

What IS the future of education? I think it is reigniting educational curiosity, questioning truths while respecting others, and developing ethical…

Hola a todos

Hola a todos desde Santiago, Chile....con algo de frío, pero arropado en mi familia...mi idea de unirme a TFoE es aprender y conocer de experiencias innovadoras en educación, que puedan ser aplicadas a la enseñanza de la medicina.

Pese a poder  entender y expresarme en inglés, lo haré permanentemente en mi viejo y mal castellano/español/chileno...y sí, es por porfía y orgullo....el sur también existe....

Cariños a todos.

What house do you live in?

It might seem odd to begin a blog post with this title but hopefully you will find that the analogy is quite apt.

We all live in houses. However, the style, the quality, the fittings, the size, and the neighbourhoods that our houses are in are all different. It seems to be a trend in most countries that many people aspire to the larger house, the higher quality fittings, the expensive neighbourhoods, the more impressive styles, and so on. It would be a rare person that aspires to a…

Carrots and sticks may work for Donkeys, but...

Recently, the Federal Government announced a big carrot for teachers in the form of performance pay.  The top ten percent of teachers are going to receive a big bonus.  


The first point I wish to make is about the whole carrot and stick analogy itself.  The idea stems from the donkey who has the carrot held just in front of him, but as he moves, so does the carrot, as the person…
