Everyone's entitled to my opinion

Larry, like you, I spent a lot of my years in the Navy in an instructor and "train the trainer" role both on the ground and in the plane. Teaching is not that hard, like you say.But we do throw the youngsters right out of college into an environment without any real life experience. Kinda like when I graduated from college I got a job as a line supervisor over 42 people in a poultry processing plant. I knew nothing of leadership and management yet I were one. I failed at that first job but learned a butt load.If teaching paid what I make in BD I would do it. We need tachers with life experience too. You may be able to get by with it in grades K-3 but after that you need a teacher with more maturity (although, there are exceptions to the rule).
