I believe that the cornerstone for a learner's success is that he/she should be motivated to learn. It is the teacher's responsibility to create the environment and factors that ignite and maintain the desire for learning in his/her students The instructor should practice the role of guiding and helping students to make their own discoveries concerning their subjects of study, their abilities, and the world they live in. The instructor should not think of him/herself merely as a provider of information to students as passive receivers. I believe that students remember, and understand, what they discover better when they are actively involved in the process of learning. It is the teacher's responsibility to provide the best conditions necessary for the success of the teaching/learning process in his/her classroom.
