If You Want To Learn Something, Teach It!

As the title says, "If you want to learn something, teach it."  I've heard and read this many times throughout my life.  I never really understood it.  If you don't know something, how can you teach it?  REALLY!!!  You mean during all those years spent in classrooms, the teachers didn't know what they were teaching us... they just wanted to learn it?  It didn't make any sense to me at all.  I didn't get it.

I want you all to know that I'm learning as I go along.  Though in this blog I'm not exactly "teaching", it gives me the opportunity to explore and express ideas that pop into my head.  As I question and look for answers, I'm learning.  Once I've done that, I blog about it and share my thoughts, ideas, and what I've learned with all of you.  It's kind of like teaching.

Blogging has really helped me.  I think I FINALLY get it.  You can have a general knowledge about something and have a genuine curiosity about it.  As you do research and discuss things with other people, you're "teaching" and "learning" all at the same time.  So.......... If you want to learn something, Teach It!

Love,  Paula
