Honesty Versus Competence
This is politics, knowing the pulse of the voters. In a way, it likewise illustrates what is important in teaching. A teacher needs to know his or her students. A teacher needs to connect with each student in his or her class. A teacher must have his or her eyes and ears on the ground. This is what makes teaching really challenging as it demands a great deal of adaptation.
In a post on Facebook I saw this morning, a children's book author and teacher shares his experience of being able to take his students to a different world. And without doubt, this is because he knows his students.
