Prof David on Teaching That which touches me most is that I had a chance to work with people. Passing on to others - that which was passed on to me. To me young people come first. They have the courage where we fail. And if I can but shed some light as they carry us through the gale. The older I get, the better I know, that the secret of my going on is when the reigns are in the hands of the young who dare to run against the wind. I take my creed as an educator from a song "We Who Believe In Freedom" by Sweet Honey In The Rock, into every classroom. It influences all my preparation, encounters with students and my desire to help.
