Transformational Teaching Manifesto

As the years pass I am more convinced that teaching is an inside job. . .

It starts with the teacher. . . 

taking care of herself of himself. . . 

and then turning the abundance of that work into the fuel to ignite the minds of students.

I believe this is true for all teachers, regardless of subject matter or age of students.

I believe that teaching is a spiritual practice.

I believe teachers must act from love not fear.

I believe that we have forgotten this, and so we teachers are broken and we work in a broken system with a broken paradigm.

I believe the transformation begins with me.
