Teaching is Releasing Imagination.

The margin is the place for those feelings and intuitions which daily life doesn’t have a place for and mostly seems to suppress… With the arts, people can make a space for themselves and fill it with intimations of freedom of presence… [and] give honored places on the margins as individuals are gradually enabled to bring this art alive in their own experience, as they are gradually freed to let imagination do its work.

—Maxine Greene, Releasing the Imagination
