I am a doctoral candidate in education and one of the theorists for my work is Parker Palmer, an American educator. In his book, The Courage to Teach, he said something I thought perfect for my research and which I was hoping to use as an informal motto for us in the International Studies in Education program at the University of Iceland. The phrase is:
"We teach who we are."
The author referred to this by saying, "Teaching, like any truly human activity, emerges from one´s inwardness, for better or worse. As I teach, I project the condition of my soul onto my students, my subject, and our way of being together. [Thus,] [g]ood teaching requires self-knowledge: it is a secret hidden in plain sight."
Could someone help me in creating a viable Latin translation? Thank you very much!
