The Art Of Teaching

The art of teaching
Is performed by teachers
With a range of talent
Across a broad spectrum
Beginning at the low end
With those who wish only
To tell you something
These are the most mediocre
The next rung up the ladder
Is occupied by those
Who will take the time
To explain what they have told you
And above them are others
Who will do all of the above
And then demonstrate what they mean
Then finally towering over the rest
Are those who have told you about the matter
Explained it to you
And demonstrated how it works
They will then go one step further
And will attempt to inspire you
To try and do it yourself
Those who can inspire their students
Are the greatest teachers of all.
