What Really Matters in Education?

20 years from now students will not remember what an amazing math teacher Mr. Eshleman was. They won't sit around and discuss all the ways Mrs. Weiss used differentiation strategies to challenge them. I'm willing to bet there won't be too many conversations about what Senora Vargas did that made learning to read in Spanish easier.

But I can guarantee that when they look back at their education, especially in elementary school, they absolutely will remember how we made them feel. They will talk about relationships, either how powerfully wonderful they were... or how powerfully harmful they were.

Teachers have a tricky role. They need to be experts in delivering academic content so that students can leave with the skills and grit required to be successful in life. And teachers need to be able to deliver all of that while teaching students kindness, empathy, and love, by modeling kindness, empathy and love.
