Teaching Makes Us Smarter

For years I taught writing part-time at universities near where I lived both in Tennessee and Maryland. I also briefly taught high school English. I never felt more useful or smarter. Now I know why. Based on scientific research, I was smarter because I had to break down the writing process and find creative ways to present the information.

For those of you who teach, I salute you. But give credit to your students as well. This article reminds us of the benefits of learning and thinking in a group. It’s a win, win—even for teachers.
