Garrick Ollivander has one of the best jobs in the Harry Potter world! He prepares young witches and wizards to enter their first year at Hogwarts with what the most important tool they need in order to be successful at magic - a wand. The wand chooses them. Mr. Ollivander simply offers different wands with different fits until the right wand presents itself.
Mr. Ollivander knows that sometimes things need to blow up in order for you to try something out. He doesn't limit Harry from trying out wands that will shatter a glass vase or cause a mess of papers. Mr. Ollivander does what is necessary for the student to succeed, not what is easy or what is comfortable. If we aren't allowing students to learn from mistakes or failures, are they learning at all?
Mr. Ollivander understands the importance of his job. He knows that great things can be done with wands.
Ollivander also encourages Harry. He knows each person is capable of great things, either terrible or wonderful. Voldermort did terrible things. But they were still great things. Ollivander understands his role in equipping wizards or witches to do great or terrible things. He does not take what he does lightly.
Mr. Ollivander remembers each wand he has sold to each student. Mr. Ollivander remembers Lord Voldermort's wand and how it is a sibling of Harry's wand. When was the last time someone remembered something of your history from ages ago? Remembering is a way to value others, by connecting with how they have grown from the past and seeing potential in their future.
I always love the scene when Harry gets his wand. It's not the first time he's done magic. It's not even that he does anything at all. What I love is that the wand chooses him. It fits him. When do we offer those kinds of opportunities to our students, to be fitted for what they are best at, what they want to do in life?
