I don’t want my students to be leaders. I want them to be followers.

“We should be measured by the number of leaders we create.” I don’t remember where I saw these words or who spoke them, but I agreed—yes! I want to create leaders. Students who will:

  • make change instead of talking about it,
  • inspire others to be contributive citizens,
  • and encourage their peers to be their best selves.

But a few days later, I heard some words that made this quote seem null—words to make me think that I don’t want my students to be leaders after all.

The true measure of my success as a teacher lies in my ability to create followers. Students who will:

  • reject the world and choose Jesus,
  • love others as themselves,
  • and walk humbly before their God.
