This is a great point! Often times when we are teaching a lesson we have taught many times before, we almost know the answers without even thinking of facts. I try to remind myself to slow down and “play the part” (if need be) to show students that being a math person doesn’t mean you’re fast or that you have a lot of information memorized. Can be easy to forget though, so be intentional about it!
