This sentence really resonated with me: "At work, I see myself in numerous roles such as a motivator, an evaluator, an intellectual, a problem-solver, a social relations manager, a counselor, and a partner in the emotional interaction. " That's what teaching is all about - switching from role to role in the blink of an eye.

I didn't have access to the student responses in the Equity Forum but I am very, very intrigued. It's clear to me that you value relational trust with young people. I wonder how did you leave that Equity Forum feeling?
