Re: Another Lesson

Thank you, Katie, thank you, Lynn. Lynn, I agree that we do have to be careful about what we model. I teach English, too, and a few weeks ago I got an email from a student who graduated from our college in 1996. She was in a really tough place when I met her and she wanted me to know how far she'd moved from that place. She could quote whole paragraphs I had said to her. I didn't remember saying any of it! When we teach, our words can have tremendous power.
