Impact

We all want to make an impact in the lives of others and so it should be.

I was told, many years ago, that it is helpful for teacher motivation to ponder over the potential of each child. You must remind yourself, it is preached, that the next Einstein may be in your class. Such a reminder would motivate one to always give your best as a teacher, no matter what the circumstances.

Then life happened and it dawned on you that both Hector Pieterson and Nelson Mandela may be in your class.

The secret to teaching with values in mind lies in the constant reminder that both the next Hector Pieterson and Nelson Mandela may be in the class.
