Here's Blog quote #549...
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
Some of the best teachers inspire rather than read out of a book. They reach the soul rather than have students memorize formulas. They stir passion and excitement inside the mind of a youth, rather than going through the motions and treating all school-ers the same.
Ask people what teachers they remember, and most likely, you'll hear about the educators that somehow, were able to get to the core of that young student.
Help people dream, desire, think outside the box, wonder, stretch, and say 'why not?,' rather than I don't know if/ how that will work.
Thank you to all teachers across the planet-- who light fires daily, in the minds and spirits of those looking to further educate themselves.
That's my view...what say you?
