Teach Others


To impart knowledge or skill by example or experience


Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new. Og Mandino

There was a cover story in Fortune magazine . . . on chief executive officers who had dyslexia and of course, until recently, dyslexics were treated like dirt in the school system. And the guy who ran Kinko’s was a dyslexic and I love this: when he was being just battered and bruised in school his mother told him not to worry Paul, in the long run, the A students work for the B students, the C students run the businesses and the D students get the buildings named after them. Tom Peters

Tell if you know, ask if you don’t. Duane Alan Hahn

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education. Mark Twain

A child educated only at school is an uneducated child. George Santayana

Who dares to teach must never cease to learn. John Cotton Dana

We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn. Peter F. Drucker

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think—rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. John Dewey

The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself. Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

The true aim of everyone who aspires to be a teacher should be, not to impart his own opinions, but to kindle minds. Frederick W. Robertson

Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater. Gail Godwin

It seems that, as parents and educators, we mold children’s values and morals. We teach them valuable lessons related to honesty, courage, integrity, loyalty and so on. Yet it seems that we allow children to dictate to us the concept of ‘fairness.’ When asked to define ‘fairness,’ most children respond: “Fairness means everybody gets the same.” Unfortunately, we often allow children to convince us that this indeed is the definition of that concept. As a result, we attempt to deal with all children in an identical manner. When a teacher modifies a lesson for an LD child or adjusts the course requirements for him, his classmates charge that the situation is ‘unfair.’ Rather than respond to their complaints, the teacher should explain that the mature conceptualization of ‘fairness’ is not equal, identical treatment; rather, ‘fairness’ means that every student receives what he needs. Because each individual’s needs are different, ‘fairness’ dictates that their programs and expectations will be different. Children are capable of understanding this concept if it is explained clearly and if it is observed daily in the teacher’s modeling behavior. Rick Lavoie

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. William A. Ward

We should always maintain an attitude of learning. When we focus on helping others learn the lessons of life that we have been taught, we both are on this journey together.
