TEACHING: A PRIVILEGE AND A RESPONSIBILITY
To be effective in your job as a teacher it helps to reflect on what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and to find resources to help you do it better. Hopefully you will find these pages helpful to you as a teacher.
A HELPFUL QUOTE :

I remain certain that the quest for truth cannot thrive outside the nourishment of mutual trust flowering into a commitment to friendship.
