Re: How serious a teacher are you?

I believe, being serious as a teacher means:
to teach what the students need to learn,
and not what you create in your mind.
Thus, I usually do not prepare a complete, elaborated training session,
but go there basically unprepared, just one thing to start with (which should follow a curriculum), and then see what they do, and then see what they need. I found I get the best ideas for the training program this way, the highest motivation, and I feel Im the most serious teacher to my students this way.
Because imagination is always short to reality.
Because I serve their needs, and not my visions.
