Introductions Good teaching comes from identity, not technique, but if I  allow my identity to guide me toward an integral technique,  that technique can help me express my identity more fully.   Teaching always takes places at the crossroads of the personal  and the public, and if I want to teach well, I must learn to  stand where these opposites intersect.   Intellect works in concert with feelings, so if I hope to open up  my students’ minds, I must open their emotions as well.   Definition of vocation (Buechner): “the place where your  heart’s deep gladness meets the world’s deep hunger”
