Teaching: The Most Noble Profession

For my final blog post of 2011, I thought I'd repost my most widely-read essay of the year: "Teaching: The Most Noble Profession," that was published on Common Dreams.org, a progressive news site. Here's a short excerpt:
"Teachers are the agents of the future. Will our world be populated by people ready and able to meet that future as creative and critical thinkers; as wise, compassionate and knowledgeable citizens; as skilled and motivated solutionaries within their professions? The answer to this question lies with teachers. More than any other profession, teaching has the power to create a healthy, just, and peaceful world (or not). It has the ability to seed our society with informed, caring and engaged citizens (or not). It has the capacity to inspire lifelong learning and a passion for knowledge, understanding, and innovation (or not). Is there anything more important than this?"

Read the complete essay.
