I have been teaching high school Mathematics for a few years now. I always considered teaching as a sacred service, in engaging students, imparting valuable skills and creating enthusiasm about the subject; but over time I had come to realize that teaching students is as much or more of a learning opportunity for me. Here are my experiences as a teacher of mathematics and as a student of life. Invaluable in this journey, is the community of adults deeply involved in teaching and enquiry, in Shibumi and in KFI schools, and in particular, Kabir Jaithirtha, who helped me see and appreciate the richness of teaching, mathematics and life.
