What did you think as a teacher? Before you answer that question, it is pertinent to reminisce on Albert Einstein perspective that says: “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”

This is really a provocative thought from a 12-years old boy. However, it’s a clarion call for us as a teacher to be resourceful, more importantly, have a good relationship with our students and grow with them.
