A professional approach and kindness

are the opposite of the best type of teaching.

Valuing intelligence and understanding,

you miss the point entirely.

The teacher who rules the class and directs the learning

will be plagued by obedient and respectful students.

When nothing is clear and it all seems a muddle,

materials will arrive to help you lose your way.
