You find yourself rooting for the underdog and that’s a lot of the reason you ended up in this profession in the first place. You find the lost, the weary, the burnt out, and you pour your energy into their hearts. Your selfless quest to change the community is truly mindblowing, but it’ll get you in trouble if you don’t toe the line and don’t protect yourself a bit.
You might find some protection (and a lot of value) in a methodology that focuses on giving the students agency. It’ll help break down barriers with those underdogs for sure.
