Then he stepped aside, to let his junior instructors teach.
It was good to watch. Two of them were extraordinary, not just good teachers, but good leaders. They had their group active in a matter of minutes. Consequently the students in that group got many more reps than the others. Hmmm- good teachers compound learning: better teaching and less wasted time. I worked with the group with the weakest instructors, they seem surprised that I would be uke for a 'mere recruit'.
I know how hard it is to step aside and let someone else teach. We talked about it, observed, threw in some suggestions. Discussed things and improvements from our different points of view. A full day in the burning sun (hadn't planned on it, I'll be crispy tomorrow).
A good day in the gravel. Green grain blows in the wind (who ever thought this country could be this green?)
