Know Your Stuff
We know teachers are one of our most valuable assets.
With the school year starting soon I looked up
That’s when I came across this:
“Three things to remember when teaching:
(1) Know your stuff,
(2) Know whom you are stuffing, and
(3) Stuff them elegantly.”
These words give us a window into Dr. Lola May’s personality.
This remarkable educator made learning math fun.
When she began teaching she promised herself that none of her
students would feel intimidated;
and she made sure to keep her brightest interested.
She had the extraordinary ability to make students of all ages
learn math and have fun while doing it.
Lola May looked at the world with an open mind.
A mathematics pioneer and a truly inspiring teacher.
As William Arthur Ward said,
“The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.”
