The Element of Fire

When it comes to teaching, the “torch of enlightenment” gets passed both ways. This teacher takes a great poem, and launches into a thought-provoking discussion with her students.

On a side note, I also really appreciate her and her students’ thoughts on mental illness. Society attaches far too much stigma to a problem that is already causing enough pain and anguish for an individual and their family. Don’t hate.
