A true teacher

Having spent a lifetime studying and training myself, I try now to share this inquisitiveness with my own kids. Here are a wonderful selection of quotes I heard from Mark Harley:-

A true teacher defends his pupils against his own personal influence. He inspires self-distrust. He guides their eyes from himself to the spirit that quickens him. He will have no disciple. Amos Bronson Alcott

The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires the listener with the wish to teach himself. Edward Bulwer-Lytton

A teacher’s purpose is not to create students in his own images but to develop students who can create their own image. Srinivasan Sriram
