I often give lessons that I don't know the outcomes of---I think this is good
teaching--I tell the kids that we're all going to learn together and everyone
needs to share what works the best and the worst. I am most enthusiastic about
new projects and I'm always doing new things, so it isn't always possible to
know all the problems that will pop up. I think the kids really like that
enthusiasm and interest--I've never thought I was the king of the room and all
should bow before my superiority. I usually present myself as a bumbling human
who is very knowledgable by always finds out something new. That way kids are
happy to share their ideas. Sid
