Denis, I can’t believe your incredible insights.
“When I approach a lesson as an opportunity to help the student and at the same time remain open to seeing through another one of my blindspots then we enter win/win territory. In this space I am no longer just helping to expand my student’s vision of the world but also my own”.
Why is this so difficult for so many. As if a college degree somehow makes us experts at life. Many teachers and parents stay locked in their identities of how important they are rather than explore the art of human connection.
I am jumping for joy and so are so many children, that you have the willingness to say that you are a human being still learning about what it means to be a human being yourself.
The world would radically change if teachers were interested in seeing your way of viewing learning and growing.
This level of vulnerability allows for connection that changes the trajectory of lives.
Simply amazing Denis. Thank you!
