For as long as I can remember, my mom has been my best friend. Almost everyday after class during my walk home, I call her on her cell phone to ask how her day was and to share stories about mine.

I would be lying if I said I was surprised that I am a spitting image of her. I’ve inherited her perfections, her flaws, her looks, and her passions. A teacher by trade and nature, I always thought I would follow in her footsteps and work in a classroom like she does. But as I grow older and live my life more independently, I’ve discovered that teaching doesn’t just happen in the classroom. Teaching happens in a conversation, on the street, and in a compelling story.

I’ve also realized that teaching isn’t a one-way street. No matter what age, no matter what background, everyone has something to teach and in turn, has something to learn.

Perhaps that is why I have a love affair with writing. I explore different topics and learn different facts that I can then transform into a fascinating narrative. That story is absorbed by readers, who then share what they learned with their friends, family, and neighbors. It is a beautiful, never-ending cycle that hits every generation. Let’s teach, learn, and live together.
