This is so simple and yet so true. We’ve all seen children slumping out of the classroom of a burned out teacher-their body language saying they can’t wait to leave, and their minds are closed to whatever the teacher had to say. And yet, have you ever seen the face of a child that has just had the fire of learning ignited in their soul? They beam with a light so bright it casts a glow on everyone around them! That is what I wished for the students I taught, and now that is what I wish for the students of the student teachers I am working with. Love of teaching inspires love of learning…no matter what our age.
