The best teachers are the best story tellers

The Joy of Teaching

The teachers who get "burned out" are not the ones who are constantly learning, which can be exhilarating, but those who feel they must stay in control and ahead of the students at all times.  A good teacher is better than a spectacular teacher. Otherwise the teacher outshines the teachings.

And when you talk about teaching, a teacher must be able to spin stories, i.e. in the form of thoughts. Thought flows in terms of stories - stories about events, stories about people, and stories about intentions and achievements. The best teachers are the best story tellers. We learn in the form of stories.

Happy Teachers' Day!!
