A recent toot by @JordiGH prompted me to dig up Lockhart's Lament again: maa.org/external_archive/devli . The last time I read it, I was still doing some manner of teaching work. It seems my feelings about this essay haven't changed since then.

Addendum: if you are somehow able to find the book Lockhart wrote that expands on this, give it a look as well.

@tpfto And what are those feelings? C'mon, don't be coy. >:)

@JordiGH He eloquently said what I felt, but couldn't put into words back then.

@tpfto When I was teaching I felt like such an ogre teaching to kids who didn't want to be there at all what I knew would be completely irrelevant to them after they left that class.
