EMG Quote of the Week – Education creates confidence in a brighter future
If education is the growth in knowledge and skills, the better we get at this, the more familiar we become. We then develop a fluency in this, creating a confidence that it works. Ever had a student have that lightbulb moment where finally they get something. With confidence they are then able to approach similar problems with confidence bringing much more hope. As the levels of stress go down, the tradeoff is peace. Now this is a gradual build up. There is always going to be some frustration and some points of not getting something, until they reach the point of the lightbulb moment. Good teaching creates growth through this by challenging students in a way where they are supported fully. The end result is success but ultimately having confidence in what they are doing. This is how they step into the world with confidence, because the skills they’ve gained have given the confidence to do so.
