"Education is not the filling of the pail, but the lighting of a fire." ~ William Butler Yeats "Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand." ~ Chinese Proverb What makes a great educator? Some would say that it's insight and aptitude. Others would argue that it's the sheer enjoyment that comes from working with students. I agree with both sides but the element that I always focus on is this: that you need a healthy respect for students as individuals! Why the heavy emphasis on this? Because everything flows from the premise that different students have different ideas, expectations, needs, and values. There are no shortcuts and no easy answers. There's only the intense satisfaction received from helping students become critical thinkers, good communicators, and self-motivated learners.
