“Teachers should help students learn and understand the discipline(s) they teach, but their role is larger than that. Teachers should help students learn how to be successful in life. This includes teaching them how to think creatively, work in teams, persevere, and express their understanding through various means. Teachers should inspire and play the role of assisting students in discovering their path in life.”
