914. Just about you reader and me
Remember that whatever you teach, while teaching, you're educating your students.
So can I educate if I teach math? Sure. Think: order, arriving on time, neat work and neat handwriting, respecting even helping their classmates, politeness, discipline, fortitude, generosity, arousing possible talents as writers, engineers, artists... Whatever we teachers do in the classroom either educates our students or some way hurts them.
The best thing you can do, and the most beautiful as well, is doing your work well and loving it. This should be combined with love of benevolence toward them all, though sometimes you may get burned out with a few of them who're acting up.
