Ahhh To Practice What We Preach

So the hubbs and I spoke in our religious congregation on Sunday. We each had to speak for 15 minutes (which is a really LONG time to speak). I'll spare you the pages and pages of hilarious stories and thoughtful insight and just give you the quote I built my talk around.

"There are three things which must guide all teachers (and, I would add, parents): first, get into the subject; second, get that subject into you; third, try to lead your pupils (and children) to get the subject into them--not pouring it into them, but leading them to see what you see, to know what you know, to feel what you feel.”

David O McKay
(Parenthetical by me)
