Teachers in our society are responsible not only to broaden the thinking of our youth but to shape minds to objectively accept all ways of life and be critical of thinking that dehumanizes others. Teachers are also responsible for imparting skills and developing confidence in our students that empower them to exercise agency for what they are passionate about.”
