Nel Noddings on being present with our students

“I do not need to establish a deep, lasting, time-consuming personal relationship with every student. What I must do is to be totally and nonselectively present to the student – to each student – as he addresses me. The time interval may be brief but the encounter is total.” – Nel Noddings (1984)

Nel Noddings developed the concept of the ethics of care and also enriches education theory. This quote comes from her book “Caring, a Feminine Approach to Ethics & Moral Education.”
