Teachers as Master Learners

“What I want are master learners, not master teachers, learners who see my kids as their apprentices for learning.”

I enjoy my day with the students best on days where they are the active learners and they are mentoring each other and me.  It reaffirms why I am a teacher when I see students ask questions, make connections, and then teach another student.  When we model being life long learners then we are fostering the future.  Most days in the classroom are fun and learning takes place but on those special days when you can see the gleam in a students eye as they discover something for themselves and they are able to communicate it to someone else then I know that I am in the right profession.

I love that part, "apprentices for learning", so true. Here's to schools filled with master learners!
