Hello William, I enjoyed reading your article and found it very inspiring. What struck me was your willingness to delve into the human dimension of your students. You were not afraid of the potential messiness, or if you were it did not stop you. By getting to know your students in a more meaningful way you found out how to support their personal growth and their education.

I am aware of how little this is actually part of the curriculum of education faculties in most universities and how much this type of relational work benefits not only students but teachers, as well.

thanks for your work.
