There are no mortals among us

I'm at an outstanding education conference this week.  Lots to think about it.  Here's a taster: we were read this quote from C.S. Lewis yesterday. 

There are no ordinary people.
You have never talked to a mere mortal.
Nations, cultures, arts, civilization—these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat.
But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit—immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.
C. S. Lewis The Weight of Glory 

It is immortals that I teach.
