Michelle Rhee dropped by MATCH yesterday. Here she is pictured with future great science teacher Veronica Gentile. When Michelle launched Students First, her goal was 1 million members. To be honest, I thought that was crazy. Her membership now, if I heard correctly: 1,004,000.
SF just launched a fun contest.
Describe what it means to be a great teacher in just 6 words.
Charlie Sposato used to adapt this quote (origin may be Teddy Roosevelt or John Maxwell): "Kids don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."
But that's 14 words. Can you do 6?
Somehow I don't think my "Great teaching: 2 SDs above average" is gonna catch fire. Any wonky love out there?
However -- and I'm talking to you Kenny Wang at DC Prep, nee MATCH -- I can easily think how the Pats should beat the Ravens in 6 words.
"No huddle offense from the jump."
