I Was A Teacher

A coach remains something or someone who carries a valued person from where they are to where they want to be.

In Japan, a “sensei” is one who has gone farther down the path.

In Sanskrit, a “guru” is one with great knowledge and wisdom.

In Tibet, a “lama” is one with spirituality and authority to teach.

In Italy, a “maestro” is a master teacher of music.

In France, a “tutor” is a private teacher.

In England, a “guide” is one who knows and shows the way.

In Greece, a “mentor” is a wise and trusted advisor.

To teach means to show. Teachers dont just tell; they illustrate, they model, they show.
A good teacher should make a poor student good, and a good student superior. When our students fail, we, as teachers, have also failed. Then start to identify and magnify each student’s unique gifts. Mantra: Trust yourself. Think for yourself. Act for yourself speak for yourself. Be yourself.
