Apollinaire said

“Come to the edge,” he said.

They said, “We are afraid.”

“Come to the edge,” he said.

They came.

He pushed them…

and they flew

-Christopher Logue

This the essence of teaching: challenging our students to take a risk, so they can achieve more than they ever thought was possible.
