Universal hackneyed commentary offered by students who want to be complimented no matter the truth. Well placed criticism can be a high form of teaching.

this is very true

The logic behind this memoir is, well...none.

StacyJane says,

Well, working in an elementary school, the memoir seemed logical to me. Staff comes in every day, navigates an intensely complicated set of demands while, in most cases, actually managing to educate our children, and what do they get from us, the public? Constant criticism. I have to admit that I would have been one of the critics until I took a part time job as a para-educator and saw what REALLY happens in a public school. Not that Educators should not be subject to criticism, but honestly, for such an important job, we Americans afford it phenomenally little respect and imagine that anyone can do it. Not so.
