A GREAT TRIBUTE TO A GREAT TEACHER
A Seminary Student Remembers What He Learned from His English Teacher, Mrs. Lillian Arezina
By Fr. Slobodan Čavka
The job of a teacher is a sacrifice. The job of a teacher is not to think for the students, but to teach the students to think for themselves. The job of a teacher is a selfless, not a selfish act. The job of a teacher concerns altruism, not egotism. It does not a matter what a teacher can do, rather the success of a teacher is reflected in what her students are able to achieve. A true teacher teaches her students not only facts but makes her students into better people.
The list of such principles could go on and on. From my point of view, all the above have something in common. All these principles are beautifully displayed in the life of Lillian Arezina, the English language teacher at St. Sava College of Theology in Libertyville.
