Wisest is he who knows he doesn't know

If there is one thing I have no time for, it’s a lack of manners. If someone is addressing a room full of people, then it is courteous to listen to them. I find it somewhat amusing that those who complain most about behaviour are the last to show respect yet expect respect to be shown to them. I also struggle with members of staff that do not want to try new teaching methods, when as a teacher I was always of the opinion that I wanted to learn anything that could help me engage the disaffected.

Sometimes it will take time to learn something new, but that doesn’t mean we should stop trying. Sometimes the best teachers are pupils – we just have to be prepared to let go. Sometimes it’s best to start with a small idea and build upon it, than to give up at the first hurdle.

Some days are better than others.

For those of you following these ongoing ramblings, it took about 7 hours to finish the Dreamweaver notes, and I am indebted to Pat for printing them today. Thanks, yet again!
