Educators' Changing Views on Humility, Humble Bragging and Sharing Successes Through Social Media

It's a relatively new phenomenon: educators sharing their successes on social media. For some this is a major breach of the humility many educators feel is required of those in the profession. But a new generation of educators is pushing back on this notion and using PR and marketing strategies to brand their schools and tell their stories. We invited five educators on the leading edge of this issue to talk with uncommon candor about the culture clash between traditional educator values and those of the social media culture.

Educators' Changing Views on Humility, Humble Bragging and Sharing Successes Through Social Media

Disillusioned and Teaching with a Broken Heart Because I Must

Confession: I Don't Like All of My Students and Some I Really Dislike

It is a generally accepted belief that teachers should love working with all of their kids. Fact is, sometimes teachers don't like some of the kids in a classroom and sometimes teachers may even dislike an entire class, but are hesitant to admit this. This often creates deep feelings of shame, dissonance and doubts about being fit to teach. Our panel talks openly about this dilemma. Follow:@blairteach, @wmchamberlain @flourishingkids @bodymindchild@BloomfieldDavid @bamradionetwork Rae Pica, education consultant, author and host of Teachers Aid, joins William Chamberlain, a junior high social studies teacher; Dr. David Bloomfield Professor of Education Leadership, Law, and Policy at Brooklyn College; Nancy Blair, a professional development consultant, former teacher and school administrator; and Joan Young a 4th-grade teacher & therapist, social worker before teaching.

The Great Dilemma: When Protecting the Profession Clashes with Righting What's Wrong in Education

But others feel that unwavering positive spin in the face of obvious wrongdoings is hurting the teaching profession. What's your take?
