This blog is called A Teacher’s Blog. This begs for an explanation of the word teacher. Most people see a teacher as a person that defines doctrine and gets you to believe it, be it math or theology.

“I have to tell it again and again: I have no doctrine. I only point out something. I point out reality, I point out something in reality which has not or too little been seen. I take him who listens to me at his hand and lead him to the window. I push open the window and point outside. 

I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue.I push open the window and point outside.”

Martin Buber
