The Best Teachers…

I like the TED talks.  A lot.  When I was working at the school board, I wasted many a lunch hour going through the TED video library.

This guy, Barry Schwartz, makes a plea for common sense over bureaucratic rigidity in modern society.  He also sums up the qualities of every single teacher that I’ve ever had, who I considered “amazing”.

Pretty inspiring stuff.

See Barry Schwartz’s talk here.

What’s Google’s slogan?  “Don’t be evil”? Whoever I end up working for, I hope I go home every day feeling like I’ve really done a good thing, as opposed to feeling like I just made a few bucks from somebody.
