“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Successful teaching is not leading students to information, but rather guiding them through techniques for approaching information like experts. As teachers, first and foremost we must model the very traits that we wish to see in our students. For me, this consists of a curiosity and passion for learning combined with a spirit of inclusiveness grounded in the belief that everyone has something to learn and something to teach.
