Be Inspiring. Be Inspired.


“The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.”

William Arthur Ward

I have come across this beautiful quote a dozen times in the last decade. 

I remember my mentor cum ex-CEO in my last job sat down with me on my first day of work, looked me in the eye and recited this. Part of my job then was to lead a department of 100 staff. I was inspired. I wanted to inspire. 

When I first became mum, I came across this quote again while reading up on parenting books. I made a note to work on being inspiring to my kids. 

To inspire them would be a greater gift than just providing knowledge. 

Always my daily reminder.

I must say that I am very impressed with the few lessons that I have attended with J so far. Thank you for inspiring us!

It is really amazing to see how just a few short lessons are already making the difference to how J responds and learns. I am most glad to have signed up for your class!
