A decade ago on facebook mini-polls trended for a while. One of mine asked what little kid me wanted to be when I got older. Choices were artist, teacher, famous, and designer. Similarities between artist and designer should have clued people – although I do some fine art, I usually identify as an artist-designer – but evidently not. Most people guessed teacher or artist. Only Mike Lewis of MIchael David Lewis Music correctly guessed famous, but he may have been the only respondent I knew in real life. Mike didn't need to guess. Mike knew.
Famous hasn't happened (yet!), but teacher has. I'm very greedy and I want to learn as much as possible from everyone and in every situation.
What do I like to teach? Everything I know something about. Art and design; bible and theology; music— especially keyboards. How about you? Would you rather be the teacher or the learner? If your answer is teacher, you know you're both.
A big "Thank You" again to FMF host Kate for the wonderful cable knit and yarn heart button.
Yes! I love to learn, and to share what I've learned. Definitely both.ReplyDelete
Wish that I knew how to teachReplyDelete
the cool stuff that I know,
but that skill's quite out of reach,
so down the road I go,
acting all mysterious
(It's alchemy, old son!),
and leaving people curious
that, really, such a one
as I truly seem to be
could ever have the smarts
to do the stuff that they can see
needs mastery of certain arts
when I look like I don't know
more than a water buffalo.
I have often said that I am a perpetual student. I love to learn. While I am not a teacher by profession, I do hope I have been able to instill some good into the lives of those around me.ReplyDelete
Amen. So very well spoken. I love to learn, Thank you for this lovely post. Blessings.ReplyDelete

oh, I'd have to say both I think... learning is so much fun, and sharing what you know and enlightening someone else... joy! :) FMF3ReplyDelete
