Only the Brave Should Teach


"Only the brave should teach. Only those who love the young should teach. Teaching is a vocation. It is as sacred as priesthood; as innate a desire, as inescapable as the genius which compels a great artist. If he has not the concern for humanity, the love of living creatures, the vision of the priest and the artist, he must not teach."

                                                       - Elizabeth Deutche Earle

Almost all of us had a teacher or teachers we remember all our lives. As a therapist, I have seen many of these brave souls in my therapy practice.  Uniformally, they struggle with the idea that they haven't done enough for their students.  Great teachers come in all flavors, and we learn from them all our lives, even when they are long gone.

Warm Regards,
