Teaching is a noble calling. That is why when a teacher doesn't behave nobly it breaks trust and we get upset. I have to admit that I've had days as a "TT" (Terrible Teacher.)

When the 2.0 phase of the internet started I read everything by every educational blogger out there and listened to every podcast (remember those?).
