Good teachers

Are not out there looking for good students,

They are looking to make average students great.

They know the difference between laziness and the awkwardness that comes with learning anything.

They will call you out for not doing your best

Even when you’ve done “enough” to get by.

They notice when you are tired and can’t take anymore

And when you are just too scared to try.


Average teachers show you how to do something.

Good teachers teach principles that far outlive

The lesson.

Great teachers teach you how to live.

It takes a moment to spot the difference.
