What are your thoughts on teaching?
Learning how to express ourselves is learning how to think more clearly and deeply about who we are, who we can be, and our place in the world. Learning how to read and listen closely is to receive that crucial expression from others, and, in doing so, we learn of all the world’s possibilities.
