The good teacher

Everyone is a teacher in one way or another.

Parents teach children. Siblings teach each other.

We have been thinking about global teaching in

the African community; especially the tone we use towards each other.

The concern is this: Let us not be dismissive of each

other’s ideas.

While some are wiser and more

knowledgeable than others, no one “knows it all”.

Lets be open to each other’s views, even when

we disagree. Let us consider the voice of the speaker.

When we correct, lets do so in a way that is welcome

and not experienced as an attack.
