Translation: I’ve never studied here. But many of my friends who graduated from here are really knowledgeable and portray good characteristics. Being a good person isn’t judged on your uniform, just like Alber Einstein used to say “ïmagination is more important than knowledge”.  The teachers here are doing the right thing.


School should be a fun place


These teachers are making education entertaining, as they’re adapting to the students’ interests. 

Schools and education institutions should be fun places to learn and encourage ‘out of the box’ thinking. These teachers are certainly leading by example.
