  • “Good teaching comes in a myriad of forms, but good teachers share one trait. They "are able to weave a complex web of connections among themselves, their subjects, and their students, so that students can learn to weave a world for themselves. The connections made by good teachers are held not in their methods but in their hearts--the place where intellect and emotion and spirit will converge in the human self." -- From The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher’s Life by Parker J. Palmer.
