The Smartest Person In The Room


I have taught at the college level since 1970, over 42 years.  Even after all of that I laugh at many college professors because they delude themselves into believing that they are the smartest person in their college classroom.  They probably are not the smartest person in the room.  They may have more degrees or know more about the subject or have taught for a long time but the smartest person in the room might very well be the quiet young student in the back of the room who studies very hard, works very hard and has a IQ that is so high it cannot be measured.  We must accept the possibility that the professor is not the smartest person in the room.
