There is no school perfectly suited to meet the needs of every student that walks through the classroom door. There are very few schools that provide all the opportunities for growth that teachers deserve. And yet, for most of us, there is something about the places we work that makes going in to teach more than just a job. In this issue of the iTDi blog Pravita Indriati, Anne Hendler, and Faten Romdhani where asked to reflect on two questions, ‘What is one thing that your school lacks?’ and ‘What is one thing your school has which you believe all school should have as well?’ Their responses are a window into the joys and hardships of teaching. They are also a reminder that the support of the teachers around us is often what allows us to identify and meet unaddressed needs while at the same time celebrating abundances which might otherwise go unnoticed.
