Let them bloom : Growing colourful citizens with caring classroom teachers
Tindle, Elizabeth (2007) Let them bloom : Growing colourful citizens with caring classroom teachers. Australian Guidance and Counselling Association, 1, pp. 12-14.
This paper examines the essential qualities of a good classroom teacher. The analogy of a caring gardener who understands the individual growing needs of a vast variety of plants is used. The paper argues for the freedom to have differing non-sectarian curricula and for trust to be placed in the teaching profession.
