What’s the difference between a teacher and just about everyone else? Well, I could write for hours and never really answer that question, but it might just be best summed up by saying that most people – in any situation where something needed to be accomplished – would say, “Get this done, now.” A teacher would say “Get this done, here’s how.” You may be thinking that’s just semantic wordplay. If so, I would ask you to read those two sentences again. I mean really read them. Without question, when I am at my worst as a teacher I go with the former. When I am at my very best, I always reach for the latter. And that, as we all know, virtually decides whether students succeed or not.
