#10 -The inner circle

I got a surprise email today from one of my ex-students. I haven't taught in a school for nearly 3 years but I taught this student Chemistry, which is not my specialist subject (physics) but I tried as hard as I could.

If there's one thing to say about the way I teach, it's unconventional, and I pissed off most my managers but always won the students affection for trying to make them THINK about what they were studying rather than just go through the books and pass exams. I got fired from loads of places and to be honest I am rather proud of that. I was fired for making students think.

So I left rather bitter about the profession, but I wonder why I the feeling of teaching has a special place in my heart.

I wanted to make a piece that sums up how I feel about the profession and I think I may just have hit the right notes.
