“A teacher has many duties, and they are not easy ones. Her interventions must be prudent, sensitive and varied. Her energy, her words, and her severity aren’t necessary; what is needed is the ocular expertise of observation, a knowledge of when to speak and when to remain silent, according to the needs dictated by the situation. She must acquire a moral alertness, comprised of calm, patience, charity, and humility.”
