A passion for learning combined with a sense of playfulness is key to get students to enjoy learning. My students are tomorrow?s teachers, and I try to teach them by example. They then can teach by example to their own students. Self-respect, mutual respect, academic achievement: all can flow from this passion, and the students in turn can open new doors for themselves.
