Liao: Effective teachers take on many roles. As this drawing suggests, one essential role is leadership.
Satoru: Many hands, many roles. Sort of makes sense. What other roles do you envision, oh Venerable Master of Bull Shit?
Liao: (Ignoring the sarcasm). We could count hundreds. Vision, compassion, discipline, and fearlessness are primary roles.
Melissa: Notice how one hand has a closed fist, expressing determination. Another is pointing upwards, expressing aspiration.
Liao: Yeah. In ways few teachers realize simple hand gestures help us "lock" various mental states.
Satoru: Body language is important. We're constantly teaching through our bodies, often unconsciously.
Tim: Perhaps that's better. Too much knowledge pollutes.
