Teachers Versus Role Models



Throughout our lives, we often seek the guidance of teachers and role models. Even though I'm sure I could greatly benefit from a teacher, at this point in life, I'm more interested in role models. 

Here are a few reasons why:

  • Teachers give us maps to follow;
  • Role models provide us with a compass.

  • You can only have a limited number of teachers at a time;
  • Role models can be unlimited.


  • Teachers often cost money for their guidance;
  • Roles models are often free.


  • Teachers take us through their specific methodology;
  • Role models allow us to find our own methodology.


  • Teachers show us their way;
  • Role models help us find our own way. 


Lastly:

  • Teachers often make us feel like students;
  • Roles models inspire us to become teachers.
