    Beautiful findings of the good and the bad qualities in a teacher all over.I expect all the teachers should go through this before entering the class rooms. Thank you Sylvia. (Report) Reply

    an average teacher reads
    a good explains
    a better teacher demonstrates
    and the best teacher inspires (Report) Reply

    Teachers are among the people who have greatest influence on the future of the world. Let's hope more teachers realise this. Well written, Sylvia. (Report) Reply

    Your frank comments on teacher reveal your honest mind. It shows how you care for good teacher-student relationship. A good teacher is a friend, philosopher and guide. A good teacher teaches the least and he inspires.

    Sylvia -

    Thanks for the precise advice. It's easy to forget some days, where our minds should be. I teach special education here in Montgomery, Alabama. You can read about my kids in 'Off the Record' or 'Gone Fishing' if you like.
    Once again thanks for all these wonderful reminders!

    Fantastic, truly inspiring and spot on! I think I have always intended to be a good teacher, but have ended up as a bad one! I can truly relate to this, thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

And pays us but with earth and dust;
