What the teacher learned

I was reminded the other day at a teaching seminar of this truism: Students may not remember the substance of what you teach, but they will remember how you made them feel.

Now, I’m no proponent of “emotivism” as a moral philosophy, but I do know that the professors who took the time to make me feel like I was someone worth talking to made all the difference in my own occupational choice.

Are you feeling me?
