Mr. Scott Hopkins started teaching in the California school system in the early 1970's. The way schools are run now have evolved quite a bit since then. And because of that, teaching strategies have evolved as well.
Did students change more or did the teachers do so? We talk about the stress that teachers face daily from uncooperative parents and non-supportive administrators. I also inquire about how he thinks the COVID-19 situation is being handled.
It's a great conversation with someone, who is retired, that can give his unfiltered opinions without any worries of backlash from the school system. You'll truly understand why teaching is important and why teaching is rewarding.
