Today’s giving: Taught an engineering class to ten advanced fourth graders at a local public elementary school.
This was the first session of a 6-8 week course I’m adapting and teaching, with the help of a professional teacher and some community service hours provided by my company. The intent is to give an opportunity for science and engineering exploration to a group of students with a focus is on gears, force and motion.
Sometimes, we think that only the poor need help. However, focusing your giving so narrowly limits your own opportunities to give. Those opportunities may include teaching a valuable skill to a neighbor, friend or colleague.
If English is your second language, could you teach your native language to children in your community?
If you are a mechanic, could you teach basic automotive repair to your neighbors?
Could you learn a new skill in order to teach others?
A teacher gives not only to the student, but to himself as well.
