I’ve already shared reading about teachers being like cats, or pirates, or many other things. Now, this post by Jimmy Casas is interesting not just for a new analogy, but the whole discussion around it. What negative effects can the ‘rock-star’ status have for the ‘rock-star’ teacher and his or her colleagues? If you are a manager, how do you recognise your teachers’ achievements? Do you give them a public award, compliment them in the teachers’ room, send a quiet email or talk to them privately? This really made me think.
And how do you like to be recognised for your work?
