I know with certainty that teaching is not an easy task. When I began to work with teachers and, eventually, teaching classes myself, I realized that “those who teach learn twice.” Men and women who excel as teachers seek new ways to spark the imagination of their students while challenging themselves to improve their skills and enhance their own knowledge.
