野性 = 天性 = 生命力: 教师之罪, 以教育为名, 抹杀学生天性 !?


 

九月十日教师节, 一片"师道尊严"颇有点陶然 - 今晨读朱晓刚此帖 (Reference 1, below)/邵征锋 (Ref. 2), 忽从云霄飞翔, 跌坐椅上, 脑中飞思:


 

教师之罪, 以教育为名, 抹杀学生天性! 你能担保,学生听你的会一生成功? 我对学生常怀罪过之憾, 诚恐我的所谓“传道授业解惑" 改变学生天生的能力 -  "野性 = 天性 = 生命力" -  为自己谋生而误人前程, 深感渺小, 低到尘埃中。


 

So true in Nature - you stand up against all winds, rain, storms, cold, hot for so many years -


 

Visiting The General Sherman Tree in Sequoia National Park made me realize that only growth in wildness could get up a tree that tall,

"The General Sherman Tree is the world's largest tree, measured by volume. It stands 275 feet (83 m) tall, and is over 36 feet (11 m) in diameter at the base. Sequoia trunks remain wide high up. Sixty feet above the base, the Sherman Tree is 17.5 feet (5.3 m) in diameter."

The General Sherman Tree is the world's largest tree, measured by volume. It stands 275 feet (83 m) tall, and is over 36 feet (11 m) in diameter at the base. Sequoia trunks remain wide high up. Sixty feet above the base, the Sherman Tree is 17.5 feet (5.3 m) in diameter.


 

Visiting the General Sherman Tree

Two trails lead to the Sherman Tree. Parking for the Main Trail is off the Wolverton Road (between the Sherman Tree and Lodgepole); just follow signs. The trail runs half a mile (0.8 km) down to the tree. It has a few stairs and is paved. As you walk, you'll enter the Giant Forest sequoia grove. Exhibits along the trail explain the natural history of giant sequoias. The walk back is uphill.

Those with disability parking placards can park in a small lot along the edge of the Generals Highway. From there, a wheelchair-accessible trail leads a short distance to the tree. If you don't have a placard but can't manage the Main Trail, during shuttle seasonyou can ride park shuttles (all are wheelchair accessible, and some kneel) to the accessible trail. Another option, if you can do the initial downhill walk, is to park at the Main Trail, walk down to the Sherman Tree, then continue down to the shuttle stop along the Generals Highway. A shuttle can return you to your parking area, eliminating the uphill walk.

A fence protects the shallow roots of the Sherman Tree. Please help us protect the tree by staying on the paved trail.

The Sherman Tree in Winter

Once much snow falls, the main parking area off the Wolverton Road closes and the accessible parking area on the Generals Highway becomes available for all. The trail from there to the Sherman Tree is not steep but can be very snowy or icy. Please be careful, and if you choose to walk, avoid stepping in ski tracks.

The timing of winter snow varies tremendously between seasons and is very difficult to predict. Snow can fall anytime from October into June. Check current conditions for more information.

On some winter holiday weekends, a winter shuttle may provide transportation from Lodgepole and Wuksachi to the Sherman Tree Trail.

Exploring Further

Hundreds of monarch sequoias grow in the Giant Forest sequoia grove. The Congress Trail, a paved two-mile loop that begins near the Sherman Tree, offers excellent opportunities to see notable trees. Big Trees Trail, a one-mile (1.6 km) loop around a lush meadow, has interpretive exhibits about the natural history of giant sequoias. For a longer walk, explore the many miles of trails in the area.

Beyond the Giant Forest, more sequoia groves await. Visit the world's second-largest tree, the General Grant Tree in the Grant Grove area of Kings Canyon National Park. Other groves such as Redwood Canyon and Muir Grove are destinations for longer hikes.

有多少人因为老师入了老师的坑

老师教学生,领了工资,把课上了就是尽了责任,完成了义务。那么,教师节那天老师有什么理由教师节还收到学生的祝福和礼物呢?因为老师付出了高于工资价值的劳动。

 

今天教师节,物以类聚,作为教师,周边基本也都是教师,所以各种交互媒体充斥着教师节的祝福和展示,当时也少不得还有一些谩骂。祝福的话语说的无泪可流,刚好前段时间曾问过学生何以选择师范,好些人说家人逼的,有人说自己选的,有人说因为家里都是老师,有些顺便填的,有人是调剂的……理由不一而足,但还是有那么一部分人或许是因为曾经的老师选择了师范,选择入了老师这个行当,从此也就成了孩子王。

现在的教师越来越只是一个养家糊口的职业,在非教师群体认为教师应该是很轻松的,虽然工资低点,但有寒暑假,时间自由还不累,宋祖英有首歌就叫《长大后我就成了你》,对埋头苦读的学生们来说觉得好像教师还是蛮不错的,尤其是曾经有那么几个老师让人感觉老师这个职业就是白拿工资的,或许还可能获得学生崇拜的眼神,自我成就感高,那像在社会上工作动不动还得看别人脸色,在学校老师就是一个班的首长,是不是在无形中埋下了一颗想当老师的种子,毅然选择了师范,但入了师范才晓得,有些事并不如表象那么简单。台上十分钟,台下十年功,讲台一节课,课前百倍学。老师从不加班,因为老师从不下班,早上有早自习,中午有午自习,晚上有晚自习,假期那点时间不过是平时攒出来的,放假能否休上,关键还得看是否需要出去学习之类,若是组织安排去学习,那假期估计就得想唯品会的商品一样打折,到底是打一折还是零点几折就看命了,若是想要进一步提升职称,说不得还得在假期写点东西,看点数,假期往往还没开始就结束了。可见,这坑已越来越大。

但教师也并非一无是处,话说在学校里当得了老师,出去几乎大多数的事也都能做了,事无巨细都需要去做好,历数现在许多知名人物都是教过书的,当了老师就为未来成功奠定了基础;当老师因为需要给学生“卖弄”,这就要求老师不断地去学习,我见过曾经数学只开二三十分的人,现在教高中同样教的风生水起的,因为不断学习,最后的成就当然也就不可限量了;另外,当老师是跟人打交道,而非草木机械,在人与人交互的过程中能感受到各种不同的情况,不管是被人喜欢还是被人讨厌,总好过面对一台电脑或者一台手机,对象什么都不说来得强,在情感交互的过程中有利于找到自己的位置。

教师节,感谢那些让我入了教师这个坑的人,谁让我自身就是一个坑呢!

四位一体, 四愿读写博文 Postscript(epilogue) for governing all my blog posts

独立的时空, 自由的思写。劳作 (Labor)、艺术 (art)、游戏 (game)、学问 (knowledge), 四位一体; 四愿读写博文: 正义(Justice)、良知 (conscience)、自由 (freedom)、独立 (independence)- leading to integrity, compassion, and mutual respect 照镜验心,久而久之习惯自然, 我手写我心,写出心安而淡然、端然、坦然。


I can't ask or practice wisdom as I believe it's not by gain of your own effort but given by God like kindness, grace and mercy.
劳作(劳工),艺术,游戏,学问(知识)-
我不能要求或实践获得智慧,因为我相信这智慧不是因为你自己的努力而得到的,而是像上帝的慈爱,恩典和怜悯所给予的
