Confession: I Don’t Like All of My Students and Some I Really Dislike

Rae Pica, William Chamberlain, David Bloomfield, Nancy Blair, Joan Young

It is a generally accepted belief that teachers should love working with all of their kids.

This often creates deep feelings of shame, dissonance and doubts about being fit to teach. Our panel talks openly about this dilemma.
