I AM NOT A PSYCHOLOGIST

But I think that teachers have so many psychological constructs in their deeper mind that function as obstacles to their success in the TPRS classroom. In TPRS we have to open our hearts to the kids. We just have to.  With apologies for the generalization, this may be one of the reasons TPRS doesn’t work too often in universities. Some college professors, bless their hearts, think that teaching is all about the mind. It’s not. It’s about the heart, taking risks, singing in class, engaging the kids, laughing, HEARING OUR KIDS, PAYING ATTENTION TO OUR KIDS, etc.
