  • The awesome ones teach at any given opportunity until they just can't. My father was one of those. The Children and adults loved him. A question would come up and it was always ask Dad ( grandpa ) but be ready for the full answer and be ready for questions if he didn't know then it was well lets look it up we might learn something. My oldest brother has taken over that role for he's the same.

  • I think that if they are a natural teacher (meaning that it was a calling for them), they will always be teaching, at least a little, after hours as well. I know lawyers and doctors that do the same.

  • My SIL is a teacher, and I feel sometimes he continues when he gets home. He talks to my GR-DD at the age of 8 like the age of his students 10-11 th grade. He is very strict with her abt homework. which is not a bad thing she has been on the honor roll for years. I just wish he would talk to her on her age level and she'd be more comfortable going to him with questions.

  • I think it depends on the teacher. When I was in high school, I used to hang out with my English teacher, haha. (I was a senior and was 19, and she had *just* finished her teacher licensure and was only 25, and we had a TON in common.)

  • I agree wth "scuba". I am a licensed educator turned stay-at-home mom and there is a part of me that is always teaching. I don't even notice I am doing it really; it is just an integral part of who I am.

  • I think a lot of the teachers bring their work home and think of ideas on how to make teaching interesting for their students.

  • Former teacher here. We never stop teaching. Ever. Even when we're not teachers anymore.
