The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.Diogenes Laertius
We, as teachers, have a great responsibility in our hands. If we only realize the power we have, then we have to be willing to take responsibility for our actions. This does not mean that everything that happens is our fault, but it means that we should plan ourselves beforehand in order to provide the best education we can.
“He who dares to teach must never cease to learn”
John Cotton Dana
We should always be willing to learn, be humble to accept our flaws, and so, we should put some of our feelings aside and concentrate in our students’ feelings. I’m not saying that this is an easy thing to do, but to be a great teacher, we have to learn to look at our students differently.
