Why Do You Teach Creative Writing?

I teach creative writing so that I can continue to interact with other writers, particularly writers with fresh new perspectives. This helps me in my own writing to keep me from being stagnant. It is also, I believe, a service to the community since as an aspiring writer/a younger writer, I made good use of creative writing education and hope that in returning to teach, I can help other new writers the same way I was helped.
