This chapter examines the impact that one's experiences as a learner can have on one's role as an educator. The author reflects on her own education as a gifted student and the ways in which her past influenced her work as a teacher of the gifted. While there were ways that past and present were intertwined, there were also many situations in which the author's experiences could not fully prepare her for the challenges she faced as a teacher. The author explores the interplay between learner as teacher and teacher as learner in an ongoing process for growth.
