Bad wisdom, vol. 2

The teacher is the first among equals in his classroom.

I don't think I've ever heard this statement said out loud.  But sometimes I act like I believe it. 

Because, think about it--the only difference between me and the students are that I'm twice their age, have 4 years' higher education in what they need to learn, a shocking amount of professional training in classroom management, a declaration of professional ethics which carries the force of law, and a detailed knowledge of the content they should be learning.
