The Heart

I was going to write about something else, but then I noticed a blogger, Ms. Miller, had subscribed to my lowly blog. The post I linked to reminded me of the need for "heart connections" in teaching. Our students, especially the neediest, want to know we are human, that we feel like they feel. Her post reminded me of one of the key moments in my teaching career, one that I should remember more often than I am prone to do.
