The role of the teacher is to provide an open and supportive environment. One where the student can experiment comfortably and research efficiently. The teacher's role is to help guide the student as she explores on her own. The teacher is a nexus of life-experiences and it is the responsibility of the student to remain open to those possibilities. The classroom is a place where people of divergent backgrounds and ideas come together. To that end, the classroom is a place where people's most passionate and personal ideas and dreams are brought to life.
