I have seen a few people mentioning what you can learn from a
master, but I have yet to see anyone discussing what you can
learn by teaching.
Sometimes, especially if you like teaching, the process of
sharing knowledge, and the feedback and questions you get from
the student can be a real eye-opener.
I have been involved with a local elementary school’s mentor
program for several years, and it is very rewarding to watch my
students make jewelry. I recently was invited to a school board
meeting, and got to see the scope of the program- and the kids
describing what they had learned, and see their enthusiasm.
