15 Reasons Why a Teacher Would Make a Great President

teacher president_feature image_Bored Teachers


We can think of a hundred different reasons why a teacher would make a great president. Teachers are the full package. They can keep an eye on 30 kids while grading papers, listening to 3 different stories, holding a cup of coffee in one hand and tying shoelaces with the other, all at the same time. But that's not all. Teachers are wicked smart, well-educated, and make more decisions on a minute-to-minute basis than most other professionals do in a day's work. Still not convinced? Here are a few more!

1. Getting up in front of a crowd of people doesn't scare us!

    Teachers …
    - are good at leading people and managing things.
    - are excellent at building consensus and reaching compromises.
    - are effective as communicators.
    - are good at fulfilling mandates.
    - are generally at least as informed about things as the average citizen.
    - are good at finding ways to achieve goals (whether it is going around problems, or plowing right through them).
    - would be able to handle questions from the press – since questions from parents and principals have given them practice in how they provide answers to others.
    - are diplomatic and can smile and nod when they are actually dying inside.
    - understand the daily challenges that average citizens face (having stayed “in the trenches”) and not gone on to “bigger things”.
    - Are not afraid to “lay down the law” when a tough decision is called for – especially when it is the right thing to do, but is going to be unpopular.

    I believe a teacher could become an effective US president if he or she takes on the challenge of designing an educational system that meets all the needs of our 21st century youngest generation as well as the nation. Along with the reading, writing, and arithmetic they all need guidance in leadership and critical thinking skills along with computer skills. Let’s be sure the children are equipped to be good learners: nutritious meals, glasses or hearing assistance if needed; a few adults who have their backs 24/7; self-esteem and interpersonal skills. And time to develop mentally, physically, and emotionally. Let’s make the school day and the school year appropriate for greater learning. Why are we still using the calendar that was perfect for our agricultural society? The person who makes the department of defense second to the department of education will be an awesome leader who gets more for each tax dollar spent. Developmental assistance in educational centers; not
    bigger prisons. More time in beneficial activity; not hanging around and getting caught in crime. And on and on the dream could go.
    Remember what President Eisenhower cautioned in 1961: Beware of the military – industrial complex.

    We have more education than a majority of the population since we have to take classes even after the credential program just to move up the pay scale. Over 180 units and counting.

    Because we care!!!

    Teacher’s know how to creatively live on and stretch a budget.

    I agree with you 100%. Our current Canadian prime minister was a former teacher. He has a vision, he knows how to listen, he addresses injustices, and he is inclusive. He may have already possessed these principles before he became a teacher but I believe that being a teacher definitely sharpened them. And boy, do teachers ever know how much hard work is involved in any type of great achievement!
