"The most important lesson of magic is that everything is connected, and everything is naturally balanced. It's a lesson I received too late."
When Dawn had first asked Willow and Tara to teach her how to do magic it had been Tara who was cautious, never letting her within arm's reach of the real spells, while Willow had deviously left post-its with locator spells and charm ingredients where Dawn would easily find them.
But this time was different.

After Tara, after everything that had happened the past year, Dawn had let the subject drop. Then in the upswept chaos of the potentials and the looming battle with the First, Dawn had forgotten. She had set her sights on watcher duties without even thinking about things.
But the after the calm settled, while Buffy and Giles were off collecting together new slayers, Dawn found herself spending large amount of time with Willow, who along with Xander, had been co-opted by Andrew to set up a base of operations in Cleveland.

It was almost on a whim that she had asked, but as soon as she had she knew it was the next step she wanted to take.
This time Willow was took the cautious role. But unlike before, nothing was withheld.
"It's like I was saying yesterday," Willow spoke as they walked down the forest path, "everything is connected, every spell I've ever done is somewhere within me, and any manipulation of the elements, no matter how subtle, can create waves."
"Mmm hmm," Dawn murmured.
Willow looked at her student, realizing that she was losing her focus. It felt like she was back in high school, trying to tutor Xander in math.
"Okay fine," Willow sighed, "you want to see some magic?" Dawn's eyes perked up.
Willow moved to the side and bent down next to a tree, finding a small branch that would be suitable.
"A stick?" Dawn raised her eyebrow.
Willow smirked, "I forgot my number two pencil."

Nice! Would be interesting to have Willow as a teacher after all that happened in s6.

Love the pencil reference. :)

I think she would be the ideal teacher after S6. Adorable, witty, smart and sexy? Oh the student crushes there would be. :P
