When reflecting over how I have created positive professional relationships with my students throughout these last two years of teaching, has truly allowed me to see what great bonds I have been able to create in such a short time with all of my students.

In order to discuss a topic, one must know what said topic is. Transcendentalism is a movement in the nineteenth century and it encourages the idea of individualism, dislike for materialism, a strong connection to nature, and to rely on one’s intuition above all else. This belief and the well-educated people who followed it were decades ahead of their time, as it was for self-independence and was against slavery. These ideas are demonstrated in the story.
