A few weeks ago I was shopping with my daughter, and had a very silly observation in the toy aisle at target. (See photo) As a former teacher, I empathized with that poor Teacher Barbie. When that silly observation was shared thousands and thousands of times on Facebook, I started reading some comments. One particularly cynical platform shared the image, and I realized I needed to speak to the pain points underlying the jokes.
We get it, Teacher Barbie.
