Positive Supervision and the Quest for Excellence

I like to think of teaching as a performing art.

Those who work in the performing arts like to have an audience. Actors and actresses say that contact with their fans is what turns them on. Athletes beg their parents, relatives and friends to come and see them play. Singers, dancers and entertainers _ all cater to the sound of applause, applause, applause.

But teachers? Except for a few who are often considered exhibitionists by their colleagues, teachers what to perform in the privacy of their classroom without any outsiders present. Then, at the end of the year (or at the end of their career) they say "no one really appreciated me." How sad!
