This is one of my favorite quotes on education from my friend, AJ Juliani:

We talked about this recently on my podcast, and I discuss thinking about shifting from moving to engagement to empowerment.

When I first started teaching, my focus was to make sure students were really interested in the way that I presented information, but then realized, what happens if they don’t have someone doing that for them? Was their interest level in the content dependent solely on my ability to present it to them, or was I helping them learn to create opportunities or learning for themselves?
