I know what I have given you. I do not know what you have received.
– – Antonio Porchia

This reminds me of many of my students over the years. It reminds me of perspective, theirs and mine. As an instructor it is very important to be aware of the perspective of our students. They perceive our lessons with their life experiences, this can give different meaning to how your lessons are understood or how they might use them. Remember people come from all walks of life and have all kinds of experiences. So before you get frustrated with your students look at your lesson or technique from their perspective, it just might help.
