Having Future Students Involved

When someone is interested in becoming a teacher or has a calling, they usually have not a clue what they are getting into. I mean this in a good way, because many believe that teaching is something easy and that anyone can do it. That is not the case, I have seen it many time in college and how many students are lost and some haven't even been in a classroom to feel the environment.

Relationships: Who Needs Them?

I have been thinking lately about professional relationships and what role they play in how we learn as professionals, and as people. It would be difficult to learn much in total isolation. We are social beings, so exchanging ideas and opinions is a natural occurrence for us. I think we tend to seek out people with whom we can share things.
