It is more important than ever to create situations for children and adolescents, in which they can engage wholeheartedly with the world and have truly-saturated encounters with it. For teachers, this includes not only keeping “up-to-date”, but above all, working with fantasy, an unbounded interest in the world and the courage to blaze trails together with the children, on which they can discover a new way for the future. We must abandon the idea that teachers are there to fill the children with facts and lifeless knowledge............
Only those who love the world can educate children. One of the best experiences that a teacher can have is realizing that that every child becomes a mystery, who learns in her own way to set foot on the earth, to develop ideas and to begin to do something with them.
