In this article Joseph Cambone presents a portrait of teaching as an act of love. Here we meet"Anne," a teacher at a residential and day school for approximately fifty boys with severe emotional and behavioral problems, as she reflects on her classroom practice while reviewing videotapes Cambone has made of her class sessions.
