Aligning Philosophy and Practice - nashworld - 34 views

    One of my foundational rules of classroom engagement is simply this: never be the first one to open your mouth and start talking about any topic. Twenty years in the classroom taught me that one.

They'll show you if you are bold enough to listen.
