What is a teacher? A guide, not a guard. What is learning? A journey, not a destination. What is discovery? Questioning the answers. What is the process?Discovering ideas, not covering content. What is the goal? Open minds, not closed issues. What is the test? Being and becoming, not remembering and reviewing. What is school? Whatever we choose to make it.
