Professor Gardner Campbell (UMW) writes how he is a better teacher when his students are, well, better students.
As a teacher, as a leader, I look constantly for readiness. My
preparations are also meta-preparations, as I ready myself to find my
engaged students and, on the good days, when I’m at my best, to bring
those students into a fuller, more challenging awareness of
possibilities for learning, for making, for doing.
And when my students inspire me, I hope I will always be ready to clap my hands and say, “again!”
We all wish for this…
