Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 27, 1:45 PM
If I apply this to teaching, it would focus on a question: "Which teacher inspired me? How did they make me feel?" For me, those teachers stood out for some particular reason that was singular to them and me. On the other hand, they may not have been each student's cup of tea.
