Home > Tao for teachers > TWENTY-TWO


The very best teachers

have strong opinions,

believe in their lessons,

don’t brook any nonsense,

can sniff out bullshit,

don’t keep up with the times,

see worth in whatever,

know there’s only ever one way,

roll their eyes at research,

don’t need to be told,

may have no diplomas,

may even be foreign (!),

may never have taught,

may disagree with your thoughts,

may never prepare,

may inspire the others.

and are nine times from ten

completely unknown.
