Ears that hear desires and dreams hidden in goals;
Hands that mold vessels created to give glory;
Hearts that impart life - yet only the beginning of the story..
A teacher's influence is the key that can unlock the door of aspiration, creativity, and enthusiasm in a student. The image reflected in the eyes of a teacher, can be a students inspiring vision along the journey of success.
More is imparted through a teacher's heart than is ever taught by the selected texts. For a good teacher knows that knowledge is simply the accumulation of facts, but imparting a passion for life-long learning, and the desire to utilize what is learned for empowerment is invaluable.
Good teachers invest a part of themselves in every student they teach and the return of that investment - compounded by the interest generated in their students to likewise share what they know - is immeasurable!
