Great Teachers Are Great Students First

Knowledge is both acquired and shared. To be able to become a great teacher, one usually needs to become a great student first. In here, the definition of great is not the one you would associate as having pleasant manners, engaging and seemingly studious – all societal traits of what a great student in school ought to have. A great student here refers to the unceasing quest for the knowledge/truth and an undivided attention to the words and actions of the one who is sharing it. Once they have acquired it, it gives them no greater pleasure than to share it with others in any available platform because they understood that knowledge cannot remain solely in one place. It is not for decoration purposes, rather it is to be of used, to benefit others thereby bringing light to the world.
