"As 21st century teachers, we have to put up with a lot.
Constantly changing expectations.
Move academic targets.
Constant waves of new technology.
Changing sources of professional development.
It certainly keeps one day from being the same as the next, but it also creates the opportunity for us to contradict ourselves. Well, not you specifically, but as an industry. And after awhile, our collective vernacular is piled high with oxymorons–or oxymoronish–phrases that need tending to."
