Here's why we think a teacher would make a pretty awesome president!

    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!

    I think teachers would make the most of the best president of all, since they prove to have all the skills needed and they qualify with high grades for this kind of position, they can teach us how to do the best for our country by being the living example.
