i watched moneyball with brad pitt the other day. oddly is resonated with me. probably for the wrong reasons. it actually reminded me of work. teaching.
baseball teams have money to spend on players and all compete for the most wins. and the world series.
teaching is similar. the district has money to spend and we all compete for high test scores. the cst. both baseball and classrooms have their 'players' and some teams/schools have the advantage. you just have to work with what you have. try your very best.
the big wigs don't want a list of excuses at the end of the season. nor the state at the end of a school year.
on a lighter note, i found myself really liking brad pitt in this movie. i think it was his father role that won me over.
