Daily Quote: I Would Rather Entertain and Hope that People Learned Something

i-would-rather-entertain-and-hope-that

    I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.

    GtQuick—tell me the name of your most favourite teacher ever.

    The one who influenced you the most; the one who had maximum impact; the one who brought out the best in you and made you think you could do anything you set your mind to. Made you feel special.

    It could have been Mrs Brown who taught you Art and brought out the artist in you. Perhaps it was Mr Peters who showed you how great an athlete you are. Or perhaps the high school teacher who convinced you to rethink your disdain for Mathematics in case you might want to pursue the field of architecture.

    You do remember them, right? Most people do. People often acknowledge their teachers at their graduation ceremonies, and when they get into the profession of their dreams. They speak of them fondly when they have their own kids, especially when they start school.

    What makes these exceptional teachers so different from the vast majority of educators out there?
