I am convinced that the very best teachers all have one important thing in common. They are not only teachers, but also master learners. They are constantly learning about the environment around them. They are learning about what makes them tick, what motivates them, and inspires them to be the best educators that they can be.
At the same time, they are learning about each and every one of their students. Learning about what makes their students tick, what motivates them, and inspires them to be more engaged in the learning process. When I connect with other educators, I am always on the lookout for these master learners because it is these very people who make me the teacher I am. I learn from them and am left feeling inspired to continue making a difference to my own students and to the teachers who value the work that I share. The very best teachers are master learners. What can you learn from these teachers?
