The best teachers are those who don’t fear being overshadowed by their students. (Author unknown)

Caring teachers want to see their students succeed; that is often what motivates them to follow education as a career. Successful athletic coaches take pride in their players who move on to stellar careers at the next level of competition. The same is true for leaders in the various arts (music, dance, painting, etc.). We should ask ourselves, “Whom are we grooming for success?”

Students are not greater than their teacher. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher. (Luke 6:40)
