To learn is to know; to know is to grow; to grow is to change.
If we were all more adaptable, then change would be a molted
layer and not a chiseling carving. Resistance would be less
prevalent when self-improvement is in progress.
If the learning process was passive and you could learn any topic
the same way a baby learns to speak, then maybe learning would
not be so daunting. As you grow older, repetition, memorization,
reading, writing, and practice become the methods for knowledge
Learning is like a muscle. With great effort, one can achieve
proficiency and clockwork recall. With proper tools to streamline,
more is learned, more aspects get known, and there are more
opportunities to grow and evolve. No one wants to learn
something forever. We want to learn and then apply. Taste the
savor of our labors. If learning was as straightforward as "an
apple a day to keep the dentist away", would we be less reluctant

What makes a good teacher?
Teachers are the director, public relations,
accountant, manager, and risk assessor of the
They are credited for the successes and failures of
their pupils. The approaches for teachers to
facilitate are as varied as the mélange of students
within a classroom.
The role of a good teacher is to be a good student.
With an ever increasing arsenal of technology and
teaching strategies, the learning process has
ultimately evolved. The end goal for schools relies
on test stats, but students have been gifted with
accessible information that is not limited to
institutions of learning. Students can explore a
multitude of interests, but the need for instructions is
Spectrum of Teachers
Mediocrity = the Quality
Lousy = Reputation
Accessible = Approachability
Dull = Captivating/ Engaging
Callous = Gauge of Proficiency

There is one primary commonality shared by teachers. They are beacons of knowledge to share
with the invested future. The objective of a class is to learn, not to fail. Good teachers should
embolden students to take a proactive role in their education.

IS IN BOOKS
The ego of an author to impart wisdom is
the gain of their readers.
There is no skill nor trade that cannot be
instructed through books,
magazines, articles, and literary
works provide inspiration to explore
civilizations and places. A book can be
your best friend on a cold winter night or
your traveling companion while
commuting. Books can present a world
that has never existed or a time and place
that has long since passed.
Books are the artisanal gifts and catered
meals to readers. Information has
been gathered, categorized, and arranged.
It has been typed, bounded, and packaged
for the intended use of reading.
The presented knowledge in a book can be
showcased beyond lifespans. But are books
an effective method of learning?
With the rise of the self-taught movement,
more people are relying on the written
word to guide them through complex
concepts. Divulging into challenging
material requires a multitude of sources
that will require a novice self-learner to
exhibit powers of omnipotence as you do
not know what you do not know.
If you cannot read the text than the words
have no meaning. If you cannot understand
the meaning, then the knowledge is lost.

OASIS OF LEARNING IN BOOKS
The teachings of Pythagoras and literary
works of Shakespeare are still being taught
in schools, but the teachings of Pythagoras
are only third and fourth-handed down
interpretations written over one-hundred
years after his existence. The writings of
Shakespeare is written in an Old English
dialect, long extinct.
Can you learn from these writings and
teachings, if they were written so long ago?
Can books loose their intended meaning?
Can you learn from literary works that
have to be deciphered to seek its meaning?
Why is reading and retention not enough
How do you get the most out of books?
