    I taught in elementary school for 30+ yrs. In my opinion, Mrs. Olsen is an excellent teacher.

    Socrates would dub her his most promising follower. She teaches more by indirection, as he did, than by any other method. Mrs. Olsen is very fortunate. She can see a direct relation between her efforts and the student’s progress.

    Teaching seemingly brings few positive returns. Some students seem to appreciate their efforts, but rarely ever say or show it directly. Teachers must measure their own effectiveness in small increments – the improved grades, attitudes, and expanded outlooks of those they teach.

    In case anyone is wondering, I taught for 25 years, and thus have a fair idea of what it was like.

    I went to my first grade teacher’s funeral. Afterward, I was talking to her caregiver, ( long story short,) I learned I was in her first class, and she had a picture of that class on her piano. She had written our names on the back. I was and still am so glad I went. She also taught my sister. We both still speak fondly of her. She never married. I guess her students were enough for her. I hope so.

    It’s a “both ways” deal. You can only teach someone who wants to learn.
