Why do I teach?

I would have to say that the love of teaching has been built into me by great teachers in my life. As soon as I learn something, I feel like, “Oh wow I can’t believe I learned how to do that! I can’t wait to teach someone how to do it!” And as the information flows into me, it’s great to act as a conduit and share it with others, because it feels absolutely amazingly thrilling! It’s just fun and and exciting to share information and see the results of teaching others, especially when they post their work based on my teaching. I got hooked when I started teaching art to kids, and they’re like “Mr. Hamden now I know how to draw a sphere!”
