My working day always starts off well on a Wednesday because at 9.30, Annette comes for her lesson.
I always look forward to it because every week she is in good form, she has her work done, she spills enthusiasm and is eager to learn more. It’s easy to be a good teacher when she is in the room.
You see it’s not only students who are energised by good teachers, it works the other way too.
If you want to get the most from a Skype lesson, a gym class, a conversation with your friend or a hospital consultation, bring your A game.
It makes it more likely that the person opposite you will bring theirs.
