7th Grade

Providence, RI – All of us can conjure up images of the remarkable teacher we had along our educational journey - the kind of teacher who truly connects with students, inspires them, and changes their lives in profound ways. At a forum this week, WRNI is asking the question: What makes a good teacher? In her This I Believe essay, teacher Tamar Paull shares her beliefs about how the very best teachers learn from their students.

Tamar Paull teaches seventh grade at Community Prep School in Providence. Names have been changed in this essay, but the story is true, and Tamar is grateful to the real Cathryn for allowing her to share it.
