Shaping the Future is dedicated to new teachers embarking on the adventurous journey of teaching and touching young lives. It not only provides tips for effective teaching but also highlights the need for teachers to work at self improvement and be among those who, in the words of Anthony Robbins, ?live what they teach, who walk their talk.? Such ideal teachers aim for excellence in teaching and are genuinely concerned about their students. As Carl Jung?s states ?One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child." It is these caring teachers? encouragement, patience, kindness and compassion that motivate students to dream, think, believe and achieve BIG. Shaping the Future, affirms the worth and value of teachers who make a difference in the life of a child, as it highlights the challenging and dynamic role of teachers in moulding young minds, guiding and enlightening all professions and shaping the future.
