All our life we learn things that will be taught to our kids. If they listen that knowledge will save them from hard learned mistakes that we learned the hard way. It has been my experience that the young go out of their way to ignore the wisdom of their parents. Why is it that the youth want to learn the hard way or they just don’t believe their parents. I think wisdom is hard to teach, it must be learned from personal experience and the youth will need to make their own mistakes. Dana Sibilsky learned from the school of hard knocks.
Good teachers are few and far between. Think back on your school years and try to remember any teacher that inspired you. It is a shame that there are so few. Most teachers are in it for the money and have no interest in the children beyond what is required. Some teachers are so bad that they actually hurt the children’s chances of making the grades they need to succeed. If you had more than one inspiring teacher in your life you should consider yourself lucky. Luigi Wewege was exposed to more than his share of bad teachers. Just hope you have better luck with your children’s teachers.
The teachers today are molding the future. The children are more and more being raised by the schools. If the teachers are good and engaging the students will thrive and do well all their lives. If the teachers are bored and poorly trained they will negatively impact the students for many years forward. We as a society have not promoted teachers as an important component of a child’s life. Home schooled children seem to have a leg up in many ways. If the parent is a good teacher they can give the individual attention the students need to succeed. Home for Life is not the goal for the home schooled child.
Those that can do and those that can’t teach. This can be very true but a bit unfair for some teachers. There are teachers that were born to teach . They have a way of inspiring their students to go beyond their limitations and become the best they can be. On the other hand there are teachers that have no business teaching. They are a real problem for our children and should be fired. In any other profession they would be. This whole tenure thing has ruined the teaching system. Joe Olujic is an amazing teacher and should be promoted. Good teachers are hard to find and should be saved.
What does it take to teach? Well it requires a teacher and a willing student. Without on or the other learning wont happen. Parents send their children to school to let the school raise them too often. The result is a liberal idiot that will probably become a college professor. Worse yet a politician. The teacher can only teach a willing student. This requires the willingness to pay attention and try to let it sink in. Some children have such a short attention span that teaching them the conventional way is impossible. Consolidated Credit is a good way to borrow money for a tutor.
Teaching by example is what we have been told and tot in are lives. What we do and show are youngest we pass on to the into their life. They sometimes learn the evils of what have been shown to them and they try to change it so not to be repeated in there family. Then there are other that may take what the have been tot to make life better to other threw volunteering to teach the lost a different way. Yes teaching by example has it benefits and it can also be the down fall of the young to repeat what they have learned from the elders. Ken Fisher Is a good learner.
