7 1/2 Habits of Highly Successful Lifelong Learners: I dont' know too many teachers who aren't successful learners. Being a "lifelong learner" is definitely the key. My grandfather was a teacher and his motto was, "If you didn't learn anything new today - what was the point of getting out of bed?" He was right! I can't imagine living everyday without learning anything. I would have to say Habit 2 is the easiest for me. Accepting responsibility for my own learning and being an active participant comes second nature. I enjoy learning and I enjoy helping others learn.
Habit 6 is definitely the challenge for me. I wasn't raised using IPods and MP3 players but fortunately I'm not afraid to try. It just takes me a little longer to figure things out sometimes.
