……when I teach.
You teachers know what I am talking about. If you have never taught before, you will realize that the best way to learn is to teach. I’m not saying anything new. There have been many people out there that have written about this, and I absolutely love this about teaching.
Last night during a class, I was walking my students through an exercise. As the professor, I get to facilitate the exercise, and typically, I do not participate in the exercise because I’m running the thing. For whatever reason, I was able to facilitate and experience the exercise – it was a self-reflection exercise that I wanted to share with my students.
The stuff that came out of that exercise was amazing. I wanted to stop teaching and just process with them. It happens often. I absolutely love this about teaching. If you’ve never experienced this, go out there and teach.
