teacher and student, a team?

choosing more or less

what can make a good teacher?

right now, I’m feeling myself
to be a much better teacher
if my students work with me,
if they partner,

I feel myself to be so much lesser
when a student chooses to follow
each impulse into the chasm of self-indulgence,

our school is built upon belief in the child’s ability
to make the most of each opportunity,

how sad it is when a student gives in to the lesser.
