Do you have a favorite teacher?
Did you have a favorite teacher or two? I hope you did. Sadly, there were people who pondered my question and then frowning said, “No, can’t say I did.”
For those whose faces lit up with a smile, I asked, “Tell me what it was about your ‘best ever teacher’; what was the characteristic that made that teacher shine? I couldn’t help seeing the common characteristic in their answers: every “favorite teacher” had a heart that wanted the best for their students.
Yesterday, we received a note from the principal of a school in a remote mountain town.
He had just received four graduate teachers from our teacher-training program, and had this to say, “Such a fabulous four! They have such character and are truly self-disciplined. Their hearts are committed to loving the kids, using all their skills and creativity; their commitment is 100% to develop the children and create a loving community.”
He ended by saying, “We are super-super happy with the workmanship and what God has done in the lives of the teachers through what you are doing [in the teacher-training program] …keep it up!
