The quote I chose is: “The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves” by Paulo Freire. I really like this quote and think it is always important to remember as a teacher. I don’t like the idea of “molding” the students, but rather the idea of allowing the students to be themselves. I like that he refers to the teacher as an artist because the job they do is really special, and they teach them things in school that involves more than just the lesson plan. I think that this type of teacher would also have a good relationship with their students, and they would encourage the students to expand on their interests.
