    our youth

    and make good schools, Great

Moving from Good Schools to Great Schools
Good teaching comes in myriad forms, but good
teachers share one trait they are truly present
in the classroom, deeply engaged with their
students and their subject . . . and the
connections made by good teachers are not held
in their methods but in their hearts . .

you said, they may forget what you did, but
they will never forget how you made them
