Disciplined Teaching

Howard Gardner defines discipline as:

  • Working steadily on a craft.

  • Expert status in an area and continuing to be an expert by continuing your education.

“If I don’t practice for a day- I know it, if I don’t practice for a week- the
orchestra knows it, if I don’t practice for a month- everyone knows it.” –Arthur

I hope I continue to learn something new every day and grow as a teacher. I do not want to become stagnant by not trying anything new or learning about new ideas. I want to be as up-to-date on all new ideas as a student just coming out of college- only with the background knowledge of an experienced teacher.
