I read “When you teach, your students teach you” by columnist Mark Scarp.

Mr. Scarp has explained a viewpoint that I was unable to see, as I am student myself. He is a teacher — a professor — and actually learns himself. It amazes me to think that a teacher learns when he’s teaching. And I also realize why teachers teach; as Scarp puts it:

“Nothing lightens the burden of the passing of years better than to spend it celebrating the triumphs of young people ready to use their knowledge, energies and talents to do what you’ve done, only better.”

I feel like I can see through the eyes of my instructor. And I thank Mr. Scarp for that.
