oncerning we gateway . . .
Parents and boys considering the selecting of a school are interested in loca-
tion and accessibility, quality of buildings and equipment, educational recog-
nition, and various other important considerations. However, tlae most impor-
tant consideration, the one that means the most in the life of the boy of this year
and of the man he is to be a decade later, is the character and personality of the
men who, as teachers, will influence the forming of his character. The contacts
made in classroom and chapel, dormitory room and playground, between teach-
ers and boys in the intimate life of the boarding school, pass on the "power"
of the school into the life of the boy, arousing ambition, supplying objectives,
inspiring needed decisions.
Therefore, parents and boys should seek just as much information as pos-
sible concerning the officers and teachers of the schools under consideration.
At first thought this may seem a hard problem. It is not. It is easy to make
contact in person, or by letter or telephone, with several other parents who have
already had boys in a school. Specific questions concerning the character of
teachers, their reputation for fair dealing, etc., will reveal the personalities of
the men composing the faculty of a particular school. Tennessee Military In-
stitute invites just this sort of searching inquiry concerning its teachers.
During the next two, three, or four years, some one teacher will become the
outstanding influence in the life of the boy, just as a generation ago another
teacher had the same sort of influence in the life of every successful father who
may read these paragraphs. Talk with our old boys will reveal that one teacher
here has been the great influence in the life of one boy, another in the life of
Believing this, we have maintained through the years a faculty of mature
men who have demonstrated success in teaching boys. Since 1919, our teacher
changes have averaged less than 20W per year. When we find it advisable to
employ a new teacher, we always arrange for a personal interview so that we
may estimate his probable influence on boys as well as his ability to teach a cer-
Our administrative officers all teach classes and thus maintain a close touch
with the boys in school. Our teachers are men who definitely chose teaching as
a profession as contrasted with many people who have merely drifted into teach-
ing as a job. They are teaching in a boys' school because they love boys and are
interested in their progress. T They work together with a fine spirit of teamwork
and their effectiveness is weakened by no petty jealousies. Their influences on
boys attending T. M. I. are desirable influences.
