What a Teacher Needs

Great Literature, as those of us who love it thought, is alive and vibrant with the capacity to change people’s lives. Similarly,… teachers need not so much techniques and strategies as participation in things of great substance. But even more… those who choose teaching as a vocation, whatever their experience, whatever their measurable abilities, have a potential depth of soul that, when they encounter a real body of learning, is bound to awaken in themselves and in their students the heroism and magnanimity that our times require.
