In addition to the satisfaction of helping others learn, I am always learning myself. Not only do I feel that I bring knowledge and learning to the classroom but the scholars also fulfill me with a love for learning and knowledge that they bring to discussions. We are constantly learning from each other and this has always given me satisfaction throughout my career. I also find this true here at OLGA. During the past year and a half that I have been here, the scholars in my classroom have so many different backgrounds and experiences that they bring to the classroom. When we have discussion in different content areas, I learn from the experiences that the scholars have had as I present the scholars with the knowledge that I have also. I find that we learn from each other in this way which gives me a sense of purpose about teaching.
