so regardless of what the problem is, there is a solution. The solution
is found in the journey, not in the destination.

As the student takes the initiative to make his/her education interactive and experiential, the student becomes the owner of the theory and become masterful in his/her own process... Dr. Dilley quotes bell hooks from her book Teaching to Transgress -- "A teacher is a healer when the teacher empowers the student to link awareness with practice."
