Words of the Prophets on Learning and Teaching

President Monson has taught that, "we are all teachers... and we have a duty to teach to the best of our ability." You can become a more effective learner and teacher by reading and following the advice given by prophets.

"Mothers Teaching Children in the Home"

"It is my belief that one of the most effective things we can do to improve teaching in the Church is to improve teaching in our homes. Our teaching in the home prepares us to teach more effectively at church, and our teaching at church helps us to teach more effectively at home."
