Teachers as professionals

A seminar that some of my fellow teachers attended this week made the following point:  Teachers are the only professionals that deal with their “clients” in groups.  All other college-educated professionals deal with clients on a one at a time basis.

I’d never thought of it like that before.  Doctors don’t see patients in groups of twenty five.  Lawyers don’t consult in group settings.  Teachers, however, do that every day.

I am the language lover and these are my thoughts.
