THE SECRET to being a great teacher? It’s all about embracing the human side. Forget the ego, the arrogance, and step into a space where it’s not about you - it’s about the students. Take a cue from amazing educators like Suzanne Farrell – a star who never makes you feel beneath her. Rarely will she point out what you did wrong, instead, it’s all about solutions. No vague critiques, just clear guidance. Like, why say ‘don’t bring your shoulder forward’ when you can simply say ‘bring your shoulder back’? Which one hits you better? It’s about being effective, caring, and always focused on results. Be the kind of teacher who not only imparts knowledge but also cares about the journey. Just be a good person, someone they can trust, look up to, and emulate. What makes a great teacher for you?
