Educating is Being Educated

June 8, 2011 at 9:50 PM 2 comments

The older I get, I realize that I learn the most when I am teaching. I learn so much teaching because when I am sharing my experiences, I experience them in new ways. Also, the people who are seeking knowledge, and truly seeking, have lots of questions. Then we all ask all sorts of questions together, to each other, and to others outside the “group”. My mom always said that she learned more while she was teaching us then she ever learned in school.

I am very excited to be teaching a couple classes next week. 🙂 It’s no wonder many of my greatest friends and role models throughout all stages of my life have been teachers who facilitate broad learning and “action” learning, if you will. If not teachers, then definitely librarians. I have kept great company in my life, surrounded by many people thirsting for knowledge and love. Not only to gain it, but to share it.

I am planning on creating a piece of art centered around the idea of “Educating is Being Educated”. That will probably be the title as well. I can’t wait to make some time to get out my glue, scissors, paper, and paint!!!

    Heather,

    You are easily my favorite artist. I showed a couple of people the card you made me and they were sooo impressed with you. I’m so happy to hear that you’ll be teaching and sharing your talents with others. God is using you and it’s so cool to watch 🙂

    In light & love,
    Jaclyn

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 3 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 3 years ago

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
