I am working on a post for Edutopia about what it means to be a great teacher, which led me to think about all the things that teachers are good at simply because they are teachers.
So what do teachers do well?
- Listen to others.
- Organize schedules, planners, agendas, lessons.
- Staying positive despite being tired
- Being mediators

There are so many things that teachers do well because at the core of teaching is a very humanistic mission, and that is to reach and improve the lives of every student through learning in our classrooms.
