This is GREAT, Maha – thank you! It is something that I really have worked over the years. A lot of uni faculty equate the emotional factor in teaching with “pandering” to the students (rigor and emotion don’t mix nicely, do they?) … but as I’ve worked on being always positive, always forward-looking, never judging (feedback, but not judging) with my students, I can see the difference. And, of course, that is the way I like to be treated too of course. 🙂
