Capturing what ought to happen in a classroom is incredibly difficult.

Given the linguistic, cultural and intellectual diversity of our world, teachers and students in a reciprocal relationship create unique dynamics there are loosely framed by histories and stances. As an educator, I believe that the excitement and rewards of teaching and learning exist when teachers remain open to new ideas, learners are set free to explore possibilities and classrooms serve as the places for little and great moments to occur.
