On teachers, and teaching

I still find myself gnawing on the old bones of what it is to Teach, and to Learn. Now and again a ray of clarity breaks through the fug, and today's case in point is Daniel Holz' Ave atque Vale in honor of John Archibald Wheeler, the link for which was forwarded to me by Nick. I've known a couple of Teachers of that too-rare sort, and it's worth considering why there aren't more of them... what it is about the institutions that (occasionally) contain such wonders that doesn't nourish their development, and reward their enterprise.
