What Is A Teacher?

Posted on September 19, 2012


What is a teacher?
A guide, not a guard.

What is learning?
A journey, not a destination.

What is discovery?
Questioning the answers, not answering the questions.

What is the process?
Discovering ideas, not covering content.

What is the goal?
Open minds, not closed issues.

What is the test?
Being and becoming, not remembering and reviewing.

What is learning?
Not just doing things differently, but doing different things.

What is teaching?
Not showing them what to learn, but showing them how to learn.

What is school?
Whatever we choose to make it.
