This rising star has matured as a teacher significantly since last year due in part to the training she's received in the Harkness method. Last week after school she was sharing with me how much better her classes are going this year and she said to me, "I talked way too much last year." For someone who has been preaching "student-centered school," this was just about enough to make me do backflips down the hall. Think about what she said... That's a powerful statement. If you're striving for a student-centered school, keep this statement in mind. Once your teachers start saying things like this, you're on your way.
