I just stumbled across this post on 37days. It is a set of 5 videos about a teacher in Japan, truly inspiring, if only all teachers were like this. It is not something that can be leant at teacher college or from a text book but I think we can all take a leaf from his book. I hope that when Ebi-kun reaches school, he will also find a teacher like this.
