Mr Bliss' mother is a teacher. So there may be a lot going on here psychologically.

That said, she's not SUPPOSED to "get up and teach 'em". The kids are supposed to teach EACH OTHER. She's supposed to "facilitate". She can actually be written-up for not having the kids broken up into groups. ( At least if they evaluate using Danielson.)

She's supposed to be the "guide on the side", not the "sage on the stage". Except when some kids can't work effectively in small groups. Then direct instruction. And make sure to differentiate for every level and preferred learning modality. And don't forget to gather data constantly while you are doing all of the aforementioned. Got it?

Teacher can't win. The fact that this clip's gone viral pretty much proves it.
