Parker Palmer (2007) said, “Teaching, like any truly human activity emerges from one’s inwardness, for better or worse. As I teach, I project the condition of my soul onto my students, my subject, and our way of being together.”
I agree with Palmer. I believe that the person we are outside of our teaching environments greatly influence who we are and how we interact inside our teaching environments. To that end, this section will offer a glimpse of who I am by using my personal background and interests to demonstrate the condition of my soul.
