Teaching and Grace

Thanks to my dad for the hat tip. If you haven’t yet seen it, this talk (available in text & audio) is a MUST READ for all teachers. Thank you, Francis Su, for sharing your thoughts on teaching and grace!

Your accomplishments are NOT what make you a worthy human being.

I highly recommend, over and above any other teaching book I’ve read, Teaching with Love and Logic. The message of that book is similar to the message Professor Su shares. Let kids know you like them for who they are, not for how they perform in your class!
