THE OCEANOGRAPHY CLASSROOM • In Praise of Travel

Tom Garrison
First Paragraph

A famous teacher once wrote, “You teach with what you are. You are only as good a teacher as you are, or are becoming, a person” (Pullias and Lockhart, 1963). Anyone with the good fortune to share a room with a gifted teacher will quickly notice that the information coming through that teacher invariably takes on some of his or her personal characteristics. In a sense, an excellent teacher acts as a prism, splitting and combining his or her feelings for the material being taught with the material itself in ways that project his or her own values and experiences.
