A Privilege of Being a Teacher

One of the privileges of being a teacher is that not only do you get a chance to inspire, but often students inspire you.

This happened on many occasions throughout my career. I particularly admired students who found the right balance between academics, arts or sports, and yet remained humble and gracious at all times.

A recent example of such a case is Laura Restrepo. You can read about this talented young person in “Standing Tall at the Tee: A Portrait of Laura Restrepo, Golfer,” which appears in my other blog, Tropical Reflections. Just click here.
