I don't know if you have to be comfortable with always being a beginner...I think it is being comfortable with not being "an expert" and having the "I think I can" mindset...a problem solving, curious, patient, teacher who is not afraid of failure = one powerful message being sent to students.
"If American women would increase their voting turnout by ten percent, I think we would see an end to all the budget cuts in programs benefiting women and children." ~ Coretta Scott King
“Sometimes it takes a while to recognize that someone has a special ability to get us to believe in ourselves, to tie that belief to our highest ideals, and to imagine that together we can do great things.
In those rare moments, when such a person comes along, we need to put aside our plans and reach for what we know is possible.” ~ Caroline Kennedy
“Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.”~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

"Most of today's schools are based on the assumption that children are born to be taught, rather than to learn."
"Children learn incredibly quickly by following the example of people they admire."
"If the wrong model of learning is applied...no country will ever get the results it seeks."So, have we been applying the wrong model of learning in our schools? I think so, what do you think?
