We each bring our own personalities and life experiences
to our teaching. We develop skills. We talk with each other about our teaching,
gain insight, solicit feedback. We are engaged in an activity that has
tremendous social value and which entails tremendous responsibility. We
are helping to create the future. Respect ourselves, respect our students,
respect each other. And have fun. There is unbridled joy in the mystery
that is teaching.
