What Matters?

    On the way home from school today, I said to my son, "Are you looking forward to next year?"
    He answered, "Yes, except I'll miss my teacher."
    I said, "Why do you like that teacher so much."
    He answered, "He engages us.  He listens to us and asks us questions.  Kids like to talk to him."  Once again I was struck by how important the student-teacher relationship is.
