BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

And what about this quotation by Albert Einstein? It is most appropriate to my case:

"I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn."

"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." by Confucius



"To be, or not be: that is the question" (Hamlet, by Shakespeare)


"To pass, or not to pass: that is your choice...... and here I am to help you!!!" (by Albert)
