The transformative power of classical music

 

This funny insightful Video is a metaphor for teaching and learning and inspiring.

 

As a teacher how do you know you are doing this.....

You know how you find out? You look at their eyes. If their eyes are shining, you know you're doing it.

If the eyes are not shining, you get to ask a question. And this is the question: who am I being, that my players' eyes are not shining? We can do that with our children, too. Who am I being, that my children's eyes are not shining?

 

And WHAT is the definition for a Successful Teacher?

And you know, I have a definition of success. For me, it's very simple. It's not about wealth and fame and power. It's about how many shining eyes I have around me.
