How did you get started teaching?

My father's mother taught and consulted with physicians and parents of kids with special needs.

Both my parents were superb lipreaders, but could not hear. Often, when called upon to interpret for them in sign language, there was the need to explain a concept, or synthesize and simplify a large amount of information.

I received a lot of feedback from those, especially professionals (doctors, lawyers, etc.) who observed me teaching their children or explaining to my parents, and remarking the skill I demonstrated teaching.
