Which teacher are you?

Which teacher are you?

WO teachers are working side by side, teaching the Tsame grades, doing the same work, and supposedly getting the same results, but –

♦ One has a strong and pleasing personality; the other is colourless;
♦ One shakes hands with a firm, warm grip, the other drops her hand in yours like a wet codfish;
♦ One is kindly and sympathetic, the other indifferent;
♦ One stands squarely on her own feet, the other needs crutches;
♦ One inspires love of work, the other inspires indifference or downright hatred of hard work;
♦ One is loyal to all that is best, the other not disloyal, but unloyal;
♦ One teaches living souls, the other teaches facts;
♦ One travels the sunlit heights, the other the narrow ravine;
♦ One lives to teach, the other teaches to live;
♦ One’s chief pay is in the joy of accomplishment and in the growing souls of her children, the other’s only pay is in a … cheque.
