I am a teacher, which  means I learn all the time. First, I had to unlearn the old rules imposed on me by my teachers.  Speaking about my teachers, I still remember some of them, mainly those I admired, but have gladly forgotten many of them. Then, I had to learn new rules, which required questioning old assumptions, challenging old paradigms, and relearning what is relevant for my job, my career and my life. I have no special talents, but I try to be curious. I believe that having a hungry mind is a good thing, which is too often lost in the process of formal education. I try to retain student's inquisitive and open minds, sometimes with some success.
