What's my take on the DBC experience?
Not to sound cliche, but DBC is very much like 'What you put in is what you get out.' In my past profession I had to go through a test made up of ideology, pedagogy, and actual practice with reflection in order to get a state teaching license. It was very frustrating at times, but what got me through the process was my cohort. We were able to answer each other's questions, examine each others teaching in person and taped. So when Shareef mentions how DBC was like in the very beginning, I become excited. I want to have that sort of education, where I am not just receiving something because I paid for it (the restaurant mindset), but rather am receiving an experience because I am putting my effort into it.
