Lessons from Rafe Esquith

Another great mentor is Rafe Esquith who taught students in low-income areas. Some great lessons to learn from him:
  • Tell students that you aren't smarter than they are, just more experienced.
  • Show students every day how they have grown intellectually.
  • Have high standards and teach them how to reach those high standards.
  • Tell children when they are behind and develop a plan to help them catch up.
  • Be willing to work with students before school, after school, during school vacations to help them master their subjects.
