Today George Lucas shared a blog post that touches on the most important aspect of teaching. In the era of high stakes testing and finger pointing it is easy to forget about the “Art of Teaching”. Lucas hits the nail on the head, according to Lucas “When you really think back about your best teachers, they were the ones who connected with you. They might have been classroom teachers, after-school coaches, parents or principals. They patted you on the back, knew your name and made jokes with you.” Thank you  Mr. Lucas, for helping the nation remember why teachers teach.
