Monday thought of the week: what makes these teachers different

A thought:

But couldn’t these children hurt themselves? Well, the short answer is yes. That’s what makes it so thrilling. But the teachers don’t have a disregard for safety, far from it. [They] are constantly assessing the risks the children encounter. What makes these teachers different is they also assess the benefits.
