Make yourself redundant

A good teacher has the same mindset as a good parent. She is a turkey passionately voting for Christmas. The better she does her job, the less she is needed. This has never been more true than it is today, with the need for young people who can articulate, think for themselves and be empowered to know what they need to know in their own way. The best relationship between a student and teacher, as with parent and child, is almost a nostalgic one, with both laughing about the times when the guidance was still needed. Dare to make yourself redundant.
