The best teachers…

aren’t the ones who ended up having their books published or go on to become Guggenheim Fellows after you sat in their classrooms.

Somehow their lessons get all tangled up in hype and 12 or 15 years later, you can’t remember a damn thing they said.

The best teachers are like Mr. Shoneke.

They’re full of what David Miller would call fire and flow and transparency. A sense of purpose and raw realness, no fronting.

Are you one of them?
