TWENTY-ONE

To be the very best teacher

you need to follow the path, not build the path.

“But the path isn’t clear!”

True, but look carefully and you’ll see the signs.

“But the signs aren’t obvious.”

True, but they can be seen.

“But not very well! I might be mistaken!”

True, but look again and you won’t be;

look again and the signs become so real

you won’t think twice about trusting them.

And this trust will give you the confidence

that the path is present in every class.

“How do you know this?”

Because I know this.
