STOP AND THINK – It is easier to encourage your students to be learners when you are a learner yourself. (Jillian Jones, 1st year teacher in an international school)

Jones may not have had much experience, but she has learned a very important lesson about teaching. After all, teaching is the best way to learn. It takes a bit of humility, perhaps, to acknowledge that you’re still learning, but it encourages the student to know that his teacher is right there with him in the process. After all, the student learns best from another learner.

Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance (Proverbs 1:5)
