Students can surprise their teachers, educator Wendi Pillars writes in this commentary, in which she tells about a time when she was surprised by the kindness of her students in helping her prepare for a weeklong trip to help students and teachers in Nepal. She suggests that teachers encourage such behavior in students by nurturing them, providing emotional and material support, letting students take control and repressing the urge to be skeptical about students' goals.
