An Understanding Heart

"An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."

--Carl Gustav Jung

it is a rare teacher who can look beyond the annoying things kids do and still want to do their best by the kids. I had a few teachers like that and they really stand out in my mind. when I got older I sent short, to the point thank you notes to several teachers.
