TED ED always brings us awesome features, but this is one that I find myself returning to time and time again to remind myself just what it is to teach, and just what it is to inspire learning. Rule number 1: Curiosity comes first. Rule number 2: Embrace the mess. Rule number 3: Practice reflection "... have the guts to confuse our students, perplex them and evoke real questions..." As a teacher myself, I work hard every day to make the information I'm presenting accessible and entertaining. It's hard, but it's so much more important to me to do my best to instill a sense of curiosity in my students than it is to follow the "pacing guide." Great advice from a great teacher.
