"Ah, Yes, I Remember It Well": Reflections on Being in California Teacher Education
Tierney, Dennis S.
Issues in Teacher Education, v24 n1 p49-56 Spr 2015
The author was deeply honored to be asked to write something about his time of active involvement in the world of teacher education in California. In 2002, he left the field of education for a career that paid less and had a more uncertain future than teaching. Therefore he is not current with public policy or teacher education research issues. His reflections, he contends, are of one who once had a small part to play on a very large stage with people far greater than he could ever be. The author's first California Council on the Education of Teachers (CCET) meeting was the fall gathering in 1976. He attended virtually every Cal Council meeting until the mid-1990s, so his time with CCET embraces almost a quarter-century. In this article he reflects on some of the things that he remembers well. He states that if teachers remember nothing else of their history, they must remember this one thing well: There is no greater honor or title on earth than that of "Teacher."
