Flying does not come naturally to young birds (fledglings); they have to be taught and assisted to be able to finally fly on their own. As teachers, we need to foster the flight of our students by nurturing their abilities and interests and helping them appreciate their discoveries in learning. Students have a lot of dreams and it is the teacher’s role to equip them and encourage creativity in all that they do.
For teachers to foster flight, they have to appreciate their role and be constantly affirmed that they too have their own flights. For how can one teach someone to fly when they can’t fly? This site aspires to rekindle the teachers’ hunger for growth and desire to constantly give their best to the learners.
