Education, or rather being an educator is one of history’s oldest professions. Perhaps not like it is today with rules and regulations, but the idea of teaching one person from another has existed, arguably since the beginning of written language and critical thinking. Those who taught well always looked to find the best ways to teach. The best roles of teachers, the most advantageous to be taught, and the optimal environment of learning.
