To educate means to impart knowledge. And how does one do that? By inquiring that knowledge in the first place.
To be the best educator, one must possess the best education. This only makes sense. You know how much if will cost you? $.20 of overdue fine at a Public Library.
People always assume that only the privilege have access for the best education there is. That is a fallacy. A great example of this is Abraham Lincoln. The 16th president of the United States of America became a lawyer and eventually, the president through self-education. His life is a proof that you can learn anything you want and excel in it by having three things: (1) desire to learn, (2) dictionary and (3) a thesaurus.
I leave you now with this quote: "On this battlefield man has no better weapon than his intelligence, no other force than his heart"--- Dr. Jose Rizal, Philippine National Hero
