As I stated in the first post, we begin the process of teaching and learning the day we are born. Each moment in our life has some validity of this process. Even those moments that we think make no impact on our lives.
Many of you know I am not one to talk about myself. This is especially true in the world of Faculty. Yavapai College has the BEST Instructors here. Many of them I admire. This admiration is for their character as well as their strengths of teaching. It can be very nerve racking for me to speak with them for the intimidation is real in my mind.
This Semester, I am trying more and more to chat with folks and ask questions of issues in the College as well as in the World. I am so grateful to each of them for never undermining my ignorance of a topic. Each person has graciously given his or her time and energy to helping me understand.
I have often steered clear of these conversations due to a possible confrontation. No. I do not like confrontations. No one does. What I found most helpful is just communicating. A simple dialogue to hear a person’s side to the story. This helps me to find where the person is coming from with their thoughts and actions. This then assists me to decipher the meaning of what is swirling around us at every given moment.
I thank all who have been there to supply me with their words of wisdom.
I am LEARNING every day, so that I may TEACH others.
