I have seen, for many years, a "political" cartoons that makes me quite upset. It depicts a teacher with scissors going around the class and either cutting the student's thought clouds into squares, or cutting a student's butterfly wings. And they make me sad every time I see them. I know what they mean, my question is: as a future teacher, how can I NOT be that way? I hate to be a stereo type, and I want my children to flourish into everything they can be, and not that!
