There are so many wonderful things about teaching. This is one of them.
Teaching is a gift because it gives you the opportunity to reflect on your own life in a much more informed way. Think about it, you’re actually doing informal and formal research about real, living, breathing people every single day. We get to influence and learn from such an array of the social fabric. Immigrants, the upper class, ghettoized communities, homogenous, heterogeneous, dominant culture, subaltern, soccer-loving, basketball-obsessed, religious, secular, tech-crazy, antiquated, library-goers, drug problems, middle-class, disabled, mentally ill, artists, athletes. Furthermore, you actually have the ear of many of these people. You can actually effect them, for better or for worse.
If you then teach as though your existence is based strictly on constant learning, the privilege becomes overwhelmingly evident.
