The master teacher

Seth Godin remembers his master teacher.

"You can't say you can't play!"

"He understood that kindergarten wasn't third grade for little kids. It was an important step in beginning the process of becoming someone who could learn without stress, forever. And he taught them this motto, "You can't say you can't play."

Seth had Lenny Levine. I had a kind nun called Rosalio. A nun who taught us the true meaning of compassion. A teacher who insisted on visiting her students every year, even after 30 years.

Who's yours?
