I was involved in a conversation recently that described true teaching as a craft. We are not a production line designed to stamp out hundreds of clones who think act and feel the same. To be a good craftsman you have to know your craft. You must read the latest techniques. You must invest in you craft. Time and resources. Good teachers don't start and stop when the children arrive and leave school. They continue the development outside the work environment. A great craftsman knows all about the items they are working on. They know the tools and how they will enhance the finished product. Do you?
