Our minds—the most powerful tool we have—can create so many false realities about our abilities, our ideas, and our worth. As a composition instructor, I see these false realities in the minds of many learners as they approach a writing task. Therefore, I believe my job as a teacher is to “move pieces:” to move learners to a place where they unlock, rearrange, or even discard ideas in their minds about their writing capabilities. Particularly, I work to move the “not” out of “I cannot” and turn it into “I can.”
