‘Instructor. Such an interesting word,’ Janna thought to herself. ‘What exactly is an Instructor? Someone who instructs you to do something. Yes. But that’s not a ‘teacher”.

Making up her mind, she turned to Matthew and said, “Matthew, I do not accept your title as ‘Instructor’. You are not ‘instructing’ me to do something. You are sharing knowledge, you are teaching. Perhaps you could use ‘educator’ or ‘professor’.” She smiled, satisfied with her observations.

“Thank you, Janna. I’ll keep that in mind. And once again, please call me Mr. Tanner; not Matthew. Take your seat.” Not for the first time that morning, Matt wondered why he had taken the job at the Gifted and Talented school.
