Old Teachers Never … Stop Teaching

AJ's Classroom

P1330048 (1)

I’m curious about what inspires my need to teach.

Truly there is a force that compels me to take the information I process and share it with those I love. And it is not simply caring and sharing, but rather explaining, and rewording, and listening, and answering questions.

Truth be told, it also involves studying. Yes, “teaching is learning” and “re-teaching is re-learning.”

What I’m teaching these days is what I’ve learned–and unlearned–over the last five or more years about health and diets and drugs; I find it truly as fascinating as I did when I first learned it. Indeed, the rewording of what I understand is still rewarding–mostly because my 82-year-old student is as attentive and curious and as keen to learn as I am to teach.

The bonus is that our classroom is our daily five kilometre route at 8:00 in the morning.

Who could ask for more?

For the curious out there…

About Audie Jean

I love volunteering for Thrift Shops for Nova West Island. I also spend a lot of time taking photos, making greeting cards, exploring on the computer, and doing all kinds of other things that stimulate learning. It is very important for me that I LEARN or DO something every day. I have a special fondness for milking cows, reading poetry, cutting grass, walking in the woods, chatting with my grandchildren, and much, much more. Life is indeed fun.

    It seems to be in your nature, Audie Jean, to teach. You are still teaching (or at least trying to) me on some subjects. I do appreciate that you made reference to your Sunflower Girls posting on “Healthy Eating – Beginning Basics” since I find myself slipping off the wagon this year. I know what to do but need to just tighten up my belt, literally, and get back to these basics. Having your post and the two corresponding posts in front of me will be my guide. Thank you sis!

      Thank you, Prichie. I appreciate your kind comments.
      The guidelines, though, are just guidelines and we each have to adjust according to our tolerance and intolerance of certain things. I, for example, have recently discovered that I have a fabulous night’s sleep if I eat rice or potato for supper. The starch really helps!
