Questions and Teachers

We had a very great class session yesterday in which three of our favorite profs came to class to discuss teaching. Students were allowed to ask any questions about teaching that they wanted.

Although at first I thought one student's question was a throw away for the grandness of the day, it provided some thought provoking responses from the panel.

The question? Who or what teachers do you admire/respect the most?

Dr. Harper's response:

Back when I was in college and grad school it would have been the teachers that provided the best answers to my questions. Now, it really are those teachers who ask the best questions to my given answers.

Wow. May we all keep on learning, asking questions, and never be stubborn enough to think we know it all.
