GOOD TEACHERS ARE ABOUT GROWTH, NOT SYSTEMS

Good teachers care less about proving they have a great system than about finding the best way to make each student grow.  "This one needs a spur," said Plato, one of history's great teachers, about a student who seemed a little too lazy and self-satisfied.  "That other one needs a brake," he sad about a know-it-all too eager to rush ahead in his lessons (who happed to be Aristotle).  Extraordinary coaches also know that sometimes the same person who needed a spur last week needs a brake this week.  Good coaches cut through clutter and chaos.  They direct your attention to the details that make a difference.
