I see teaching as opening windows to understanding. Sometimes the windows are in great condition and easily released; other times they are painted shut and only grudgingly unsealed. For teacher alone, it’s a labor of love; for teacher and learner together, it’s pursuit of enlightenment. Either way, the joy in understanding sparkles.
