Bruce Farrer — an inspiration

Every year, 72 year-old teacher Bruce Farrer sits his class down and gets them to write a 10-page letter to their future selves. Perhaps that’s an activity (or at least a discussion) you’ve done with your own class.

Bruce takes the letters in, reads them and returns them to his students…

…twenty years later.

The result is a wonderful example of what teaching can be when you care about the person beyond the grade. We found it moving and quite inspirational. The 6 minutes it takes will reward you. See what you think…

So, what do you think?
