    The teachers I had when I was young are now little old ladies, if they haven't already departed this mortal coil, while today's teachers are still in the flush of youth.

    In comparison to the present day teachers, I feel that the teachers in the olden times were more dedicated and devoted towards the profession. There are a few who are still very much honest to the profession but the percentage is very low.

    i find the present day teaching strategies are more mechanical.

    While my teachers were mostly delightful older women, school focused in large part on worksheets and not a lot of hands on involvement.  Today's teachers, especially those who have graduated in the past ten years, tend to provide much more project-based and hands on learning.  There tends to be more choice, too, for students so they feel more involved in their education.

    I also feel, despite what some people think about teachers being lazy, it's much more difficult to be a "lazy" teacher now than it was in the past (though I only consider one of the teachers I had in school to be a lazy teacher).  In the age of testing, teachers are held more accountable than ever before, and so now they have to work harder than ever before to provide a quality, well-rounded education for students.
