The Soul of the Teacher


My mother was a teacher. I spent a long time avoiding that calling.

Then a cherished friend, Ken Hause—curriculum designer for Outward Bound and longtime teacher of mathematics and Eastern thought—said to me, “Teaching has to do with the soul of the teacher.”

There! I’ve been teaching all along.

  1. How true that is. Successful teaching (and learning) seems to always include that magic triad, mind, body and soul.

  2. My father was a doctor. I spent more than half of my life running from that in all ways. I haven’t been a healer all along, but I’m learning that doing the work is more important than self protection.
