What sort of lessons about teaching and learning have you learned from the non-school parts of your life?
Did you learn something particularly well from your pre-professor occupation that taught you about how you learn? Have you tried learning some new skill or craft since becoming a professor that provided some insight into how you learn? Have you applied these lessons into the classroom? In observing your children grow, did you gain some insight that affected your own teaching style? Is there a lesson you learned from these non-schools experiences that you would like to apply in your classroom, but are not yet sure how to do so?
