“In my two careers as high school English teacher and as university education professor, I have sought, first of all, to understand my students — their intellectual abilities and interests, their ways of knowing, and their emotional needs. I have sought, also, through teaching about psychological development, power, and educational practice to connect the content of my courses to fundamental questions of identity, value, and self-understanding — and to do all this with as much rigor and zest as I know how.”
