I ran into someone I taught with several years ago and they told me I don't look stressed anymore.
They also told me that I needed to know that I am a good teacher.
I think sometimes this push for accountability really isn't about accountability at all.
I want to teach kids to question everything. Just because someone with authority tells you something, ask yourslef if it is true. Math leads itsef to this - but my stance may be a dangerous one as well as not favored by the uppity-ups.
I loved the validation. I also loved being told."You are happy and this is good. You deserve to be happy."
