Teaching is what I was born for. Some of my earliest childhood memories are about sharing what I just learned with others.
What I've learned is that teaching serves the teacher as much as the student. It reveals what you truly understand and what you don't. This allows you to leverage your strengths while you develop your weaknesses.
Here are some questions you can ask yourself to become a better teacher, and therefore, a better learner.
Teaching creates tension and leverages status. Good teachers do so ethically and with empathy. You simultaneously reveal incompetence while holding out the promise of competence in an endeavor that matters. Good teachers beget good teachers. They elevate and enhance the community.
Teachers make a difference. They change and improve the status quo. Teaching is a generous, compassionate, and courageous activity.
Want to be a better learner? Become a better teacher!
Keep flying higher!
