As the years pass I am more convinced that teaching is an inside job. . .
It starts with the teacher. . .
taking care of herself of himself. . .
and then turning the abundance of that work into the fuel to ignite the minds of students.
I believe this is true for all teachers, regardless of subject matter or age of students.
I believe that teaching is a spiritual practice.
I believe teachers must act from love not fear.
I believe that we have forgotten this, and so we teachers are broken and we work in a broken system with a broken paradigm.
I believe the transformation begins with me.
