The goal is always the same: "Coaching (Teaching) is a profession of love. You can't coach people unless you love them."-Coach Eddie G. Robinson, Grambling

The motif for me, as a teacher, is the rifle scene in the film, Glory (1989). A black union trainee soldier shows off his markmanship to the glee of his fellow comrades. The Commanding officer commends him and then asks the soldier to reload his rifle and discharge it. He does. He's commanded to do it again and again and again. This time, as his Commanding officer fires a Colt revolver near him, creating havoc and discomfort. This makes the trainee very nervous and reveals his inability to concentrate. Once the trainee demonstrates that he's wholly unprepared for battle, his Commanding officer addresses the Major, a training officer. Handing him the revolver, he commands, "Teach them properly, Major".

This is the very line in the script, I value and think about every time I enter any environment to teach students. Prepare them properly. Prepare them for distractions. Prepare them for the battle of life.
