"When you become a teacher there is something you must remember. There is a difference between confidence and competence. One must come before the other and one makes you look like an ass."
"More than two children together is a mob."
Dr. Ivan Rowe
In my puny little life I have been blessed to be taught by the best, quite incidentally, and sometimes quite by accident. Such was my student teaching supervisor, Dr. Ivan Rowe. He was a small, round sort of fellow whom, now that I look back at my mind album, reminds me of a character right out of The Hobbit. With his crisp, quick paced New Zealand accent, Dr. Rowe bestowed (hee, I made a rhyme!)
unto me his wisdom of the ages. I remember these word lessons, have taken them to heart and giggle every time someone does something befitting those words.
Thanks Dr. Rowe...wherever you are!
