Elona over at Teachers at Risk had a post entitled It takes a lot of teacher effort to make math easy. She talks about all the work she does to make math easy for her students.
This, of course, is true of all teaching. To meet the needs of our students takes a tremendous amount of work. Putting students at the center of what happens in class is much harder than just conveying information.
This is a lesson I wish I could remember more consistently and one I wish some of my colleagues could learn.
