“We are not educators to teach kids within the limits of our comfort zones.” – Tom Whitby
Part of our High Five customer tip series – April 2011.
In my opinion, teaching is all about helping students draw parallels between what they are learning and the real world. Many of these kids just don’t see how the things we teach are actually applicable to them. I also think we have to be genuinely enthusiastic about education and all the possibilities life as to offer in terms of knowledge. I want them to be engaged in the world we live in and have a natural interest in learning new things. Cultivating that excitement is so important.
