A Teacher’s Job

A Teacher’s Job

A teacher’s job is to see in their students potential before they can see it in themselves, to have the faith and foresight to know they can actualize that potential and the wisdom to help them chart their course. It is only with this inner knowing that a teacher can invite the student, over and over again, to the edge of their comfort, and then, give them a gentle nudge.    In effect, a teacher is like the mother bird who can see her chicks flying before they realize they have wings.
