Love for my Students, not the For-Profit System

Standard

I have a personal piece up at the Washington Post today. I fell in love with teaching while working at a for-profit school, thanks to an amazing group of students.

I’ve heard from people across the country who work in the for-profit industry (and this is an industry) that this is a shared experience — the daily struggle between commitment to your students versus the overwhelming feeling that they deserve so much more from their institutions. The devotion to teaching, while despising the exploitation. The love for students, not for the system.

To all of my students from that time, this is for you. You deserve the world and so much more…
