Teaching, as “soft” as skill as it may be, is really hard to do well. You have to manage, lead, inspire, guide, correct, encourage, praise….all of it. The only people who think that’s easy are the ones that suck at it. I’ve taught before, I know how hard it is to do well. I like CodeYear’s enthusiasm, I think their hearts are in the right places, but heart and enthusiasm are only inspiration. You still have to do more than dump information on people and assume they’ll get it.
[I teach all the time. It’s awesome, but it’s not easy. it’s why the whole situation in our schools is so heartbreaking. Bad teachers slide by, good teachers are not properly rewarded… feh.]
