One of the greatest challenges of being a teacher is finding your voice. All too often we sound like an amalgamation of our teachers and have trouble separating who we are from who are teachers are. As with most things, we develop our voice and authenticity with time, patience, and practice. Come learn specific skills and practices to develop your own authenticity and to teach clearly, effectively, and honestly.
