I see myself as quite helpful, it amazes me that teaching is the only profession I can think of where professionals share ideas and resources so freely. But seriously, if I see one more "what are the current issues in education?" or similar I will go mad! Some general advice to people who are writing assignments/essays or preparing for interviews is that the school/university are looking for what you think and believe, not what TESers think. Use your own brain first and I am sure people will be happy to help, but please don't just write the title of your essay and expect help. It is unlikely you will get anything useful.
