Chapter 14 of the Companion DVD for "The Courage to Teach Guide for Reflection & Renewal: 10th Anniversary Edition" with Parker J. Palmer.
• As you think back on your schooling, who were the teachers who connected with you and helped you connect with learning? What was their secret?
• As you think about it not from a sociological standpoint but from within your own experience, how do you understand the role and importance of the teacher in our lives?
• What does the proposition “we teach who we are” mean to you? Does it ring true for you? How do you know when you are or are not teaching from “who you are”?
• What happens in those moments when teachers and students connect at a level where “deep speaks to deep”? How can we create more of those moments and connections?
