We’re all teachers.
Whether we realize it or not, every single one of us is a teacher in some capacity. We teach ourselves and we teach each other. We teach our coworkers, our employees and our managers. We teach our siblings, our parents and our children. We teach our acquaintances, our friends and we even teach our enemies. Throughout the course of our lives we never stop learning or teaching. Through the universality of teaching we understand its importance and can easily tell when it’s done well… or when it’s not.
And when we talk about our children and students, teaching has to be done well. It has to be done exceptionally well by great teachers. While we are all teachers in some capacity, very few of us are great teachers. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Every single one of us, with the right motivation, education and knowledge can be a great teacher.
You are a teacher. You can become a great teacher.
