"A Teacher affects eternity,
He/She can never tell where
their influence stops."
Henry Adams

So now you may ask who falls into that category of "Teacher". Of course, our first thought by definition is our classroom teacher. Then, there is the parent, the grandparent, the aunt or uncle, the babysitter and the next-door neighbor.

We are hearing this term more and more often,
"It takes a village to raise a child."
We know, however, that any caregiver who plays a role in the development of a child is considered their teacher.

The changing paradigm includes creating an environment where both you and your child are comfortable to learn, to share, and to be. It is about being a good watcher, listener and facilitator. It is about giving as well as receiving.

"Teaching" is about creating a practice, which includes the development of the mind, body and spirit. In the development of a life practice, we look to incorporate, a self-practice, a learning practice, a practice that nurtures positive relationships. and a practice of following our intuition.

The new picture is about understanding the role the body plays (a sensory experience) and the role the mind plays, (thoughts and interpretations of our senses), the role that spirit plays, (decision making and discernment regarding who we are as unique human beings and what we are here to accomplish).

"Teaching" is about developing structure, organization and setting limits. It is about adapting our teaching/parenting/management style to the temperaments and learning styles of our children. It is about acknowledging the art and science of learning and to get to know our students unique interests and abilities. It is about seeing ourselves as counselors, guides and motivators based on the information that they tell us about themselves.

"Teaching" is about working to get a better understanding of who we are, learning to look inside and work with those things that block our abilities to achieve our goals and look for the ways that will nurture our relationships with our kids.

Each and every time we learn something new about ourselves and put it into PRACTICE, then we are becoming more effective teachers.

This is "EMPOWERMENT" and this is who we are as "TEACHERS".
