Michie states, "Part of what teaching is about: willingness to explore with kids, to reach with them, to follow a dimly lit path together, often unaware of the dazzling surprises that may wait around the bend" (68). This, I believe, is the role of a great teacher.
I have always been fortunate to encounter beautiful teachers all through my primary school career. They made me feel like I could do anything. Hopefully we are all helping students realise they are the people who will change the world in the future!
