“Ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein.”
Perhaps it denotes of how someone's attitude can affect many things, including learning. A teacher has the ability to set the tone from the outset.Neil
That's probably what they have in mind. When I saw it posted in a place for teachers to see, it can across to me that they are saying what you make the students feel is more important than what you teach. But a teacher's job is to teach -- to impart knowledge. If they don't, it seems to me that they haven't done what they're supposed to do, regardless of how they made them feel.
I have read that little phrase about human relations in general, but never about teachers specifically. I think a good teacher should make his/her students feel that if they don't get crackin' they may spend their lives working at Wal-Mart. That is the biggest favor they can do them in this day and age.
Oh, yes, Amity !! My recurring nightmare as a retired guy is that I will be drafted back into industry because there are no recent graduates with skill sets necessary to a productive society. Feelings don't feed your face or pay my social security.Pete
