Here are some of the questions I asked in a recent maths teaching interview.

1.

A teacher tells me that you need to be smart to know what your kids are supposed to do.

When you’re supposed to be an adult, you shouldn’t want to be a teacher unless you have some skills you can’t get out of your hands. But when you’re supposed to be an adult, you don’t want to be an adult. Your brain is just as smart as the rest of your body, so you have to know what your brain is supposed to do.

This is one of the most common questions that teachers have. I have asked about this repeatedly and the answers I have gotten are:1. Yes, they are smart, but they are not ready to be adults.2. No, they are not ready to be adults.3. No, they are not ready to be adults to have a say in what they should do because they are not ready to be adults.

I have been asked this question by both teachers and parents and the answers I have gotten are:1. I am not sure I want to be an adult, and I don’t know what other options I have.2. I am not sure I want to be an adult, and I don’t know what other options I have.3. I am not sure I want to be an adult, and I don’t know what other options I have.

A teacher is your teacher. I am the teacher of my son. I am the teacher of the teacher of my daughter.
