A PERSONAL VIEW ON TEACHING
I still remember the moment when I, as a teenager (I was 17), knew I wanted to teach:
watching - or rather experiencing - the movie "Dead Poets Society".
I really connected to many elements on this movie. Just to name a few:
1) the desire for freedom of thought
McAllister: You take a big risk by encouraging them to become artists, John. When they realize they’re not Rembrandts, Shakespeares, or Mozarts, they’ll hate you for it.
Keating: We’re not talking artists, George. We’re talking free thinkers.
