The more I step back, the more I learn to not mistake the role of "teacher" for that of "leader," the more I allow the children to freely explore, letting them just play, while embracing my proper role of simply supporting that play, the more it all blends together. Everything we do is art, everything we do is tinkering, everything we do is science, emotion and community. When I get out of the way, the children blur all the edges and make it one big thing that looks just like living.
