Le contenu du document

Document A: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Francie 1 liked school in spite of all the meanness 2 , cruelty and unhappiness. The regimented routine of many children, all doing the same thing at once, gave her a feeling of safety. She felt that she was a definite part of something, part of a community gathered under a leader for the one purpose. The Nolans were individualists. They conformed to nothing except what was essential to their being able to live in their world. They followed their own standards of living. They were part of no set social group. This was fine for the making of individualists but sometimes bewildering to a small child. So Francie felt a certain safety and security in school. Although it was a cruel and ugly routine, it had a purpose and a progression.

School was not all unrelieved grimness3. There was a great golden glory lasting a half hour each week when Mr. Morton came to Francie’s room to teach music. He was a specialized teacher who went around to all the schools in that area. It was holiday time when he appeared. He wore a swallowed-tailed coat and a puffed-up tie. He was so vibrant, gay and jolly – so intoxicated with living – that he was like a god from clouds. He was homely in a gallant vital way. He understood and loved children and they worshipped him. The teachers adored him. There was a carnival spirit in the room on the day of his visit. Teacher wore her best dress and wasn’t quite so mean. Sometimes she curled her hair and wore perfume. That’s what Mr. Morton did to those ladies.

He arrived like a tornado. The door burst open and he flew in with his coattails streaming behind him. He leaped to the platform and looked around smiling and saying ‘well-well’, in a happy voice. The children sat there and laughed out of happiness and Teacher smiled and smiled. […]

Not as well loved as Mr. Morton, but as much admired, was Miss Bernstone, the special drawing teacher who also came once a week. Ah, she was from another world, a world of beautiful dresses of muted greens and garnets4. Her face was sweet and tender, and, like Mr. Morton, she loved the vast hordes of unwashed and unwanted children more than she loved the cared-for ones. […]

These two visiting teachers were the gold and silver sun-splash in the great muddy river of school days; days made up of dreary5 hours in which Teacher made her pupils sit rigid with their hands folded behind their back while she read a novel hidden in her lap. If all the teachers had been like Miss Bernstone and Mr. Morton, Francie would have known plain what heaven was. But it was just as well. There had to be the dark and muddy waters so that the sun could have something to background its flashy glory.

Document B: Teaching: Positive role models

In the real world, teachers have as little in common with Channel 4's1 delinquent teachers as they do with Julie Walters 2’s determined principal in Ahead of the Class3. Together these shows do give an important – if slightly obvious – message though: that for pupils to do well, their teachers must care about them, be imaginative enough to find individual and innovative ways of inspiring them, and be understanding and supportive while being a good role model.

In the classroom, the real heroes are people like Keith Davidson, whose efforts in championing the education of black and ethnic minority children in Tottenham led to a teach- ing award earlier this year. Icee Birch also won an award, prompting her head teacher at Oakington Manor School, Wembley, to comment: "Whether celebrating the life of Rosa Parks or reciting Maya Angelou’s poetry, she ensures our children feel proud – proud of their identity, proud of their heritage, proud of who they are and proud of what they will become. She is a walking, talking, positive role model."

It goes to show: if you put in the work, teaching can be extremely rewarding as you help others to achieve their full potential. It's certainly very varied and if you're sociable and enjoy talking to people, it could be the career for you. Where else would you find a more diverse and lively group of people to work with? And there's also the benefit of long holidays, even if they are offset by term-time working hours, which can be much longer than the 9am-4pm school day. […]
