This is not a new idea, but there is a difference between teaching students or teaching a subject.
Teaching a subject is easier than teaching students. Knowing your subject matter and having command of the information – does not a teacher make. Don’t get me wrong, there are a ton of teachers and can teach information. I’ve had many teachers that knew their information, but teaching people takes a special person.
Teaching students requires a personal connection. A teacher that can teach students can make any subject exciting. In fact, a teacher that can teach students doesn’t just do so in the classroom. Students seek out this type of teacher.
What kind of teacher are you?
