Good teaching requires much more than just “facilitating”

God, I hate it when someone introduces themselves as a “Facilitator”

Does this mean they lack the confidence to say that they are a Teacher?

Does it mean that they dislike the idea of actually teaching?

Students want someone to inspire them, someone to guide them, someone to help them and, whenever necessary, someone to show them. Yep, they need Teachers, not Facilitators…
