Educator or Teacher?
A lot of us have this questions, “Where do ISNPO-Ed get their story for the lessons?”
Well, we have Educators and lifelong Learners. Our stories come from the inspiring Educator’s mind and the need of the learners.
Just the way there’s a difference between a student and a learner, there’s a difference between an Educator and a Teacher!
Let’s check out the differences between a Teacher and an Educator:
- Everyone can teach. Few can educate.
- A teacher teaches; an educator reaches.
- A teacher typically focuses on curriculum and assessment. An educator focuses on development and evaluation.
- In the curricular race, a teacher perspires. In the journey of lifelong learning, an educator inspires. (An educator goes the extra mile.)
- A teacher works with content. An educator deals with people.
- Teaching is a job. Educating is a calling.
- Some teachers do this to earn. Educators do this to learn (about themselves, their learners, better ways to inspire, etc).
- A teacher might network locally. An educator is connected globally (and thinks and acts that way too).
“A true Educator locates the intelligence and abilities within another, drawing them out for all, even the student or learner, to see. And then steps out of the way, allowing them to develop, create and pursue their talent.”
– L. Ron Hubbard
