Bleed, scare, perspire

Posted on: April 25, 2014

This is my take on MOE’s call to teachers to lead, care, and inspire.

Some might interpret my bleed, scare, and perspire to be a tongue-in-cheek reference to:

  • have the lifeblood sucked out of you
  • scare your students into submission
  • make parents and students sweat for test results

I am not that cynical. Instead, what I mean is:

  • bleed: making sacrifices for your the good of your charges (putting learners first)
  • scare yourself: being afraid of becoming complacent (always learning)
  • perspire: change is hard work, so educators must work hard at it (being change agents)
