Abstract

Who am I when I teach? When I teach I find myself saying things in ways that reveal new insights to me, as I had not thought of them in those ways until I needed to put them into words so as to best explain them. When I teach I forget myself, in the sense that I forget to be self-conscious, and I feel as if I am outside or beyond time whilst being totally immersed in what I am doing to the point that I become one with it.
