What makes a great teacher?

May 26, 2010

Have you or your children had a teacher who worked miracles? Are you a teacher with special techniques that seem to be working? What does it take to motivate and capture the imagination of children and teenagers? Submit your thoughts for an upcoming series. I’m looking for story ideas!

    Good afternoon,

    Please consider John Wolf of the Highlander Charter School in Providence for your series on great teachers. This marvelous educator led the Highlander Chess Team to state championship in 2009. He always goes above and beyond – often on his own time. One family has mentioned that he helped their student pursue a particular passion in science that was outside of the school curriculum by picking the student up early in the morning and bringing her to school, where he assisted her in her science project before school began. He is frequently mentioned by Highlander alumni when asked, “What is your best memory of Highlander?”, and he can be found chaperoning class trips to mountain climb, explore Washington, DC, and peruse exhibits at the Boston Museum of Science.

    Please let me know if you need any additional information.

    Best regards,
    Rachel Roderick

    Maybe not miracle, but I had a professor who made me to think differently from I used to. Now I can see things from multitude perspectives.
