why we teach

we don't teach to stand in front of others and show off our skills...

we don't teach because we think we are more important that others...

we don't teach to simply instruct.

we teach to inspire others to be the best of themselves.

to explore parts of themselves they didn't know.

to be truly part of the world and not merely a passenger in it.

we teach in order to learn ourselves, from our students, our experiences, our failures and triumphs.

thankyou, RW and thank you Mr Keating. It is teachers like you who change lives.

rest easy, Robin. You inspired me often and your pain is shared. We loved you madly.
