The more we ask phenomenological questions i.e. how we experience something (a phenomenon) the more we will find space opens up but not with just answers. More questions will appear. As the poet Rilke suggested, "we will live into the questions."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 12, 8:24 PM

The first question is one that subsumes many and should be the space within which teaching and learning happens.

Teaching consists of relational language. Learning, which necessarily accompanies teaching, is a language of outcomes. They need to work together and complement each other.

 

To paraphrase Maya Angelou, long after they forgot what you taught them, they will remember how you made them feel.

They are and they will change. What I found out over the last few years I taught was that one thing that cannot be taken out is the human touch. Students love having stories read to them so the flesh-and-blood librarian is essential.

I think teaching by its nature is about leading. Do you have to leave the classroom? Do you have to do something official and formal? I don't think so. Being and becoming a good teacher might very well be enough. I look at those who are in School management and wonder. Largely, what we see is the same old same old done. It is re-forming and de-forming rather than trans-forming teaching.
