Intelligence

I work with a colleague who is quite intelligent-photographic memory or such. On the other hand, s/he is always correct. S/He reads only juried journals by real scientists; none of that educational research stuff. S/He also complains daily. Nothing is right except what s/he does, knows and everyone is just not quite up to par.
No one knows as much; no one cares for the students as much, no one works as hard. . .oops now I can no longer be professional.
Several former students wanted to know why this teacher wasn’t nominated for this or that award–well s/he is not a member of those organizations because they are educational organizations.
Intelligence doesn’t mean you are a better person.Nor does it mean you are better than others. It just means you are smart. Its what you do with that intelligence that makes you genius.
