So, as Dewey reminds us, perception heightens sensitivity. Sensitivity heightens awareness. Awareness increases attention to not only what is, but to all the possibilities of what can be. In our present era, one that denigrates the essential aesthetic and moral value of teaching, persevere in what Dewey and all perceptive teachers know to be true. Don’t let your identity as a teacher-artist be taken away from you.
