Most of Life’s lessons aren’t learned in school – unless you consider Life itself a kind of school. Perhaps what is most important (for both “teachers” and “students”) to learn is how to learn.
Each of us learns in a slightly different way. Sometimes we may have to (re)learn what seems like the same thing(s) more than once. Sometimes unlearning may be more beneficial than learning. The greatest obstacle to learning is thinking we already know. Even worse is when it is not so.
The sole/soul purpose of teaching is not restricted whatever anyone thinks is being taught. Real teaching benefits both teachers and students – and each can learn from the other. Teaching is not only sharing, but also learning – and “teachers” often have an opportunity to learn (even) more than (and from) their “students”.
Thanks for teaching me – by allowing me to learn from what I share with you.
Most people don’t need to be taught so much as they need to be reminded.
When students are ready, teachers appear.
The average teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.
Please take a moment to share something – that reminds, explains, demonstrates, or inspires (by posting a comment below).
