You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives. ~Clay P. Bedford
I earned a Ph.D. doing Genetics research at university. Learning is always fascinating to me, going beyond myself, one step at a time. A concept is not just a concept, it has an infinite number of aspects to be understood and appreciated. I am fascinated by the depth any seemingly simple concept can bring, be it in Math, Physics, Biology or Chinese. At the deepest level, all knowledge is connected and the network gives us a glimpse of the Truth.
Teaching, on the other hand, is also learning for me: every student is different. It is my job to learn what works and what makes sense to each student, how they think and what appeals to them. Their challenges are mine too. My goal is to unlock the joy of learning for them and show them how to teach themselves. A life-long learner is in everyone of us, it is up to us to discover the unique learner we already are.
Thank you for reading! Let's learn together, we will find the way through.
