It's The Teacher - John Wooden

From John Woodens' book "My Personal Best"...

No written word nor spoken plea,
Can teach our youth what they should be.
Not all the books on all the shelves,
It's what the teachers are themselves.

No matter what comes about: curriculum, textbooks, technology, media, methodology, it will always come down to that relationship created by a teacher who cares enough to demand the most from the talents of each student. Both those talents they may be aware of and those that are discovered along the learning path.
