Great list of 10 incredibly influential teachers throughout history from mastersinteaching.com.
Love the list, but would obviously have to say that on a true top ten teacher list - c'è Maria Montessori!
Charged with improving the learning situation for 60 needy students in the Roman slums, Montessori created a transformational methodology that continues to improve the education of children worldwide. What she learned and shared through simple child observation is being proven again and again in research studies and classrooms today. A true genius and educator of students and teachers, Montessori taught us all to respect and empower the child. Her advice "One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child." could help ed-reformers get back on the right track today.
