Battling Negative Stereotypes in Teaching
Updated: May 10
Unfortunately, many people in our society hold negative dispositions of teachers and educators. What they don't see are the incredible abilities and power teachers hold to change the lives of students. Not only is a career in teaching as professional as any other career path, but it is arguably the most impactful career path.
These negative dispositions place unnecessary pressure and negativity on some teachers, but we hope that our resources can help change how some view teachers and put them in a more positive light. To learn more, we interviewed BYU alumni Amelia, Taylor, and Taylon about how they handle these negative stereotypes and rise above them.
