Teaching is something we all think we can do because we all have been taught. But after teaching for a decade and hiring instructors, I can attest it is a developed skill. Learning is a flowing process that must build. As a department director teaching six classes a semester, I thought how an exercise fed a class fed a course fed a semester fed a year fed a degree fed a career. The layered complexity was diverse, immense and tangled. I learned how to seed an idea, inspire its growth, encourage its development and use its resource for further exploration.
