What you nurture, what you allow and encourage, what you spark and develop all becomes part of the their life learning.

Encourage and prompt, gently guide, and be ready to learn more yourself.
That is the true heart of being a teacher.

Books I highly recommend for older students (Jr. High to High School age):
