Wot'd you say? A pedant is a teacher.

Word of the day.  I like this one, the notion of a teacher being precise and building learning by working on the basics.  Of course, the term has acquired some negative connotations over the years.  What I didn't know until this morning was that a pedagogue was a slave, or attendant who accompanied a child to school.
